Here’s a bright painting of birds on a branch entitled “Three of a Kind”, by Heather Cash. There’s a story to go with it.
I haven’t actually met Ms Cash. What happened was, at year-end there was an internal Google charity auction; the cause struck me as excellent and I decided to help. So I entered an item entitled “Juicy link”. I promised the winning bidder links from my blog (here it is) and Twitter stream. The charity did really rather well as Heather pounced to win a last-minute bidding flurry.
I don’t think I’ll make a habit of this, but it was fun to watch the bidding; the auction site sent an email for each bid: “Look at you! You're revenue-generating! There's a new bid on your item...”
