Painted Violins

Here's something I've never considered as an alternative fundraiser idea: auctioning off painted violins.  Apparently its been done quite a bit by orchestras and schools, with some fascinating results.  Probably the best of the lot can be found at the Chicago Symphony Orchestra's website, which is where I found these: 

Winifred Godfrey, "Fleur de Lis"

Paul Sierra, "Concerto for Nature"

John Himmelfarb, "Double Cadenza"

Alexandru Darida, "Rhapsody"

Some other links, if you're curious:
The Denver Young Artists Orchestra have been doing it for years, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009 and this one
