The Auction - Painting Of Art Auction At Christie's

In addition to the Art Bubble which is situated at Sotheby's I now painted The Auction at the other great auctionhouse Christie's.

Instead of showing the actual painting being auctioned you now see the lot number with conversions to other valuta in the background. Painting all those letters and numbers was quite hard to do I might add, it made me dizzy from time to time! The image shows them a little bit crooked, I haven't got a clue why, but believe me they're straighter than 6'o clock.

I like that the action takes place outside the painting, we cannot see who's actually bidding, we only see the auctioneer and some audience members looking at something outside the painting. The dramatic lighting really adds to this mystery.

If you take a closer look though, you'll probably notice that something is off. I'm going to be a tease right now not telling you what it is! But, if you're the first who guesses it right, I'll give you a free signed postcard with a painting of mine on it. Feel free to post your guesses in the comments!

kind regards, Gerard
