Here in Canada, our National Broadcaster is airing a new show “Four Rooms” based on the UK version. It is kind of like Dragon’s Den/Shark Tank meets Let’s Make a Deal. If you have something unique you would like to sell, there are 4 buyers. First you see one buyer, they make an offer, if you accept, you’re done. If you don’t accept, you can’t go back to that room if that is the highest offer in the day.
I decided to audition this past spring with my painting of Gollum by Andy Serkis.
If you’ve read “Silencing Your Inner Saboteur” or taken my workshop of the same name, you’ve heard me speak of this painting as the representation of my Inner Saboteur being captured and silenced.
I know what you’re thinking. If it means so much to me, why would I want to sell it? It wasn’t an easy decision. I’m still technically under a gag order until after the episode airs on Sunday evening, so watch the show Sunday evening at 8 pm Central (If you’re in Canada) or at http://www.cbc.ca/fourrooms. I’ll post next week about what aired, and the behind the scenes, and my thought process going into it and after.
But I can tell you this: that as a writer, I love adventure and new experiences, and this was an opporutnity I coudn’t pass up.
I’d love to hear your comments on the episode this Sunday. You can leave your comments below, or join me on facebook or twitter at @sherry_peters.
