Artist's Notes

Artist's Notes:

‚ÄčI was thinking today (for some strange reason) about stingy paint putter outers. I'm talking about artists who put tiny little dabs of paint on their palette because ... well, paint is expensive, right?! I can say this because I was one of you once.

Imagine if piano players had to pay a penny for every key they struck. It wouldn't cost a fortune to play one song, but it would sure add up to practice, huh?! Can you imagine the emotional turmoil while practicing? But that's essentially what we're going through as artists. We pay for every dab, whether it works out or not.

Someone told me once, "Paint like you're a millionaire." I didn't understand it really, but I did put more paint on my palette. And because it was there, I used it. And because my palette didn't feel stingy, I was more confident, and eventually I DID understand.

Put more paint on your palette. It makes a difference. No longer will you make the decision not to mix that last color you need because your blue has run out, and you mix a color that isn't quite right, but whatever. You'll have plenty of blue. And paint every day too, so that you can use the rest tomorrow. And if you can't paint tomorrow, put your paint in the freezer so it lasts longer (I'll post my solution to this soon).

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.
