One day a few weeks ago, I was pondering what to offer my loyal fans and patrons to thank them for their support throughout the year. At the same time I was curating my new studio/gallery and peer collection. Space is at a premium so as much as I love art created by others, the studio/gallery is to exhibit own work not the work of others. Hmmmm!
Then I was inspired by a thought. Why not offer parts of my personal collection and some of my own work through a silent auction with low starting bids? Because I run the auction, I pay no fees and can pass on the saving to the purchasers. Once the idea was born I couldn't wait to set up an exclusive website and work out a bidding system.
It's really very simple...
1. Visit the website, or come to one of my upcoming shows to view the lots.
2. Enjoy the work on offer (you can hover to see details or click to see a larger image with more details). Some is from my own hand and some is from my peer collection.
3. Choose which pieces you would like to bid on and click the link in details.
4. The link creates an email so you can send me your bidding details.
5. As bids come in I update the website and my paper record to correspond.
6. On November 15th at midnight PST bidding ends.
7. Winning bidders will receive an invoice from Paypal with the name of the work, your bid and shipping. Tax is included. Multiple items to the same bidder will be shipped together.
8. On payment your item(s) will be shipped within 3 days in plenty of time for holiday giving.

Looking for a way to print a banner for my Silent Auction, I came across this handy blog http://www.shanty-2-chic.com/2014/04/free-printable-letter-banners.html and this is what I printed. My Silent Auction can be found here and also see the paintings at the Lake Country Art Bazaar and Red Barn in November.
The starting bids are very reasonable, and who knows, if you put in a good bid you may win one of my works for a song.
