My enamel on canvas painting, Fashion Targets Breasts, sold tonight at Lawson-Menzies' Quarterly Fine Art Auction for $A12,810, including the buyer's premium. This was above the auctioneer's pre-sale estimate of $A8,000 to $A12,000. The 105cm x 148cm work was created as the 'headline' piece for the Fashion Targets Breast Cancer auction in Queensland, way back in 1998. It originally sold for $A1,500, a record for my work at the time. I donated the entire proceeds to the charity. You can see the painting and the original invitation for the event (featuring the image) here.
