we interrupt this broadcast for 140 hours...

Today's regular TMI Thursday is on hold for the first online eva(!) art auction: 140hours.com. Voted by Mashable for the Open Web Awards, 140 Hours is doing something never before done in the art world: offering bidding online via Twitter.

So I entered this piece, a dreamy digital watercolor of my mom's African Violets:

These violets sit in my windowsill. It's a little triumph that they're blooming because the last ones I had (also a gift), I killed. (Is that enough TMI to qualify for TMI Thursday? lol)

So when my mom gave these to me, I was a little terrified because, while not quite like killing a gifted puppy, I still don't like murdering my plants with my black thumb. I was so thrilled they did NOT die that I took a picture to show my mom. Then I turned it into a digital watercolor because I just love the colors.

I printed it on canvas, it's huge and looks like a painting.

Wish me luck in the art auction! And if you would like a version for your desktop wallpaper, feel free to save!
The auction starts today and ends Nov. 11. See you then!

Fortunately, you have a green thumb for photography, unlike what you evidently lack in horticulture. Awesome photo.
