Auction of painting in full swing

LOVERS of art are reminded they can bid for Bundaberg teenager Chern'ee Sutton's artwork and help flood victims in the process.

The 14-year-old's painting, Gindjurra, depicts Gindjurra the frog, the messenger that announces the start of new life after the cleansing of the rain.

“I started this painting when it began to rain,” Chern'ee said.

“Then when the floods came, it gave me the motivation to finish it for the flood victims.

“When the floods have passed, new life and new hope will come to the people who have been affected.”

Bidding on the indigenous artwork opened on Monday at $1000 and already it is up to $1500.

All proceeds from the auction will be donated directly to those affected by the recent floods.

The auction will close at noon on February 7.

To place your bid, call the NewsMail on 4153 8555.
