Artist's Notes

Artist's Notes:

I see this scene or one similar to it multiple times a day while walking through the kitchen to and from my studio, so at this point it feels like a significant part of my daily life and I attempted to capture it. If you are a full-time artist working from home and you do not have a cat, I highly suggest you get one to keep the cabin fever from completely driving you nuts. Not all cats will make a difference, but luckily Izzy is charismatic and vocal enough to help me stave off the feeling that I'm completely isolated during the day (I've told myself that when I start talking to her and she talks back, it's time to consider getting out more). She is always a great model because she barely moves and I particularly enjoyed painting the white tufts of fur illuminated by the afternoon light. The two rugs underneath her in this scene also seemed to blend seamlessly with her natural aura of elegance.

Izzy on Oriental Rug in no.134 of my ongoing Small Works series. It's painted using high quality oils on a 5" x 7" x 1 1/2"" cradled masonite panel with picture wire attached and coated with a gloss varnish to protect from dirt and dust. Please note that colors in the painting may vary depending on the calibration of your monitor. All of my paintings come with
free shipping within the US and can be returned within 14 days if not satisfied, with shipping paid for by buyer. I also offer international shipping - check to see what rates will apply for your location. Buyer is responsible for any additional charges (i.e. duties and taxes or any other charges at customs). Also I can not be responsible for any delays at customs and buyer will not be able to track package once it is outside of the US.

How is the Ending of a DPW Auction Different?

Important: All auction ending times are in central time (CDT).

There is no more last second bidding!

Online auctions, which end at a fixed time, can cause anxiety and end in dissapointment when you lose the auction to someone who was simply able to outbid in the last seconds.

DPW Auctions auto-extend themselves to one minute remaining when any bid is placed within the last minute of the auction's end.

This means the auction ends only when there is no more bidding in the last minute. This approach allows the bidder who wants the painting the most to buy it without out any sense of panic.

No need to frantically click the refresh button!

A DPW Auction page will automatically update itself to show the latest bidding during the last 10 minutes of an auction. There is no need to click the refresh button, simply sit back and watch the timer count down the seconds remaining and be automatically alerted if anyone outbids you.

How does the DPW Auction Buy It Now Option Work?

An artist can choose to offer a Buy It Now option for a DPW Auction. This option will remain available until the first bid is placed, after which the Buy It Now option disappears.

When you click the Buy It Now button, you will be taken to a PayPal page where you can pay.

How does DPW Auction Bidding Work?

DPW Auctions uses the familiar Max Bid proxy approach.

When you place a bid, you are specifying the maximum you are willing to bid and you are agreeing to allow DPW to place bids automatically for you up to that maximum when others place bids higher than your high bid.

DPW will automatically place bids on your behalf, up to this maximum, as others bid.

If someone else places a bid equal to your maximum, then an auto-bid equal to your maximum is place for you and you remain the highest bidder.

No one else, not even the artist, knows what your maximum bid is. This keeps another bidder from entering a new bid, just under your maximum, simply to push the high bid up.

If someone else places a bid greater than your maximum, then they become the new highest bidder and the new high bid is equal to your last max bid plus the minimum increment in the following table:

Minimum Bid Increment

You can increase, but not decrease, your max bid at any time.

You will also receive a notification email when the auction ends.
