This time I'm not buying anything. Really. $6000+ is a little out of my price range for... well... for just about anything!
Stephen Colbert is auctioning off the painting of himself that hung on his set during his first year on the air. Apparently he's commissioned another portrait. Hopefully it's along the same thread, and will be him standing in front of the current portrait. That would be great fun.
And 100% of the proceeds go to Save the Children.
I think you should click on over there and check out the "additional views" of the portrait, especially the extreme close up and the view from outside the studio.
