Biennially, Baylor holds a Celebrations auction in order to raise money and awareness for the school. As a donation to the institution, Alan Shuptrine paints a full page realistic drybrush watercolor and installs it in the custom designed frame that he created just for Baylor.
This frame is hand carved, with hand applied 22 karat gold leaf using the Old World technique of water gilding, and has a custom Baylor crest - complete with title of the painting ("Patriot Walk, Baylor"), and Baylor's founding date of 1893.
"Patriot Walk, Baylor," which is one of seven paintings in a series Mr. Shuptrine has coined "The Walks of Baylor," will be auctioned off this year at Celebrations. It is currently on view at the Baylor School until Jan. 30, and will remain at Shuptrine's Galleries until the night of the live auction on March 9.
