Library In Jam

Lindi Kirwin - Manchester Preserved (2009)This painting, Manchester Preserved, isn't exactly fine art, but it is unique and rather tasty in its own way. Local jam-making business F Duerr & Sons commissioned artist Lindi Kirwin to paint Manchester's Central Library using its own products - jam, marmalade, mint sauce and so on - to raise money for The New Children's Hospital Appeal. The painting went for auction last week and was gobbled up by Dragon's Den denizen Theo Paphitis, who seems to be suffering from the delusion that he's an art buff (CLICK). Anyway, he paid £5,000 toward a good cause, so full marks for that.

I just wanted to let you know about a new forum for artists as well as musicians, fashion designers, and filmmakers, http://www.PutItOn.com. As an artist I think that the mission is really great. The site gives you a free gigabyte of space for portfolio, there is no commission taken for sales, audio and visual works can been streamed in their entirety, you can create live personal broadcasts for your followers, and anything you write will be translated into 10 languages. So check it out!
