Oil stain picture auction

Tom Waits has donated one of his rare photos — signed, framed and one-of-a-kind — from his “Oil Stain” series to a charity auction that will go to benefit the tuition assistance program at Summerfield School.

The opening bid is $800. The online auction will close June 5, 2009. More information here

I got last year's print. Hopefully, I'll be able to have a matched pair after this!

OK. Here's a thought. It's an oil stain, right? And well, it looks OK, kinda like it has a purpose...but it doesn't, does it? It's a stain. A drop, an accident. And if I stare at it too long, and infuse meaning, then aren't I being a bit..well, y'know?
Found art? Perhaps. Perhaps.

Ah, Tom, Kathleen, just sign a blank piece of paper, I'd be happier. Then perhaps I could add my stain of choice, y'know?

Good luck to whoever bids and wins, its for charity, so big it up. Already way outta my price bracket.

Yea, i'd rather ketchup, or coffee - coffee can be kinda deep...
