Artist's Notes

Artist's Notes:

Original watercolor on tissue paper, landscape portrait in warm, glowing tones titled Wild Iris & Laundry.

The detailed and textured painting has many glazes of color applied to achieve the luminous depth and hue to the colors.

This technique was inspired by an ancient Zen meditation ritual in which the Buddhist monks would meditate on a crumpled, and then smoothed, sheet of rice paper until a vision appeared to them from the random lines and folds in the rice paper.

For these paintings, I randomly apply crumpled tissue paper layers to a rigid backing. Then after many applications of transparent color washes, an image is suggested where the color has collected in the folds and swirls of the randomly applied tissue paper...kind of like finding images in the clouds. I continue to enhance and detail the image that has been suggested by the folds in the tissue paper by adding color in thin glazes, and definition with ink. The painting is then protected with a Broad Spectrum UV protectant, and light varnish.

This signed painting measures 8 inches w. x 11 inches tall on prepared, archival, art board. The painting is not matted, and is not framed.

Lynne French is a contemporary artist who trained at Chouinard Art Institute, CalArts, where she studied with both Millard Sheets and Phil Dike. She is collected throughout the United States in both private and public collections, has done extensive commercial work and numerous commission pieces. Lynne French is listed with AskArt, and also in The Artist's Bluebook.

How is the Ending of a DPW Auction Different?

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

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.
