Artist's Notes

Artist's Notes:

A week after cutting my way back into Oregon, in June of 2018, and before I got up to Three Creeks Lake (see my last post), I was up on Winter Ridge, 3000' above Summer Lake, and a couple miles north of Fremont Point. The 8th of June was a peerless day, and drifts of buttercups were shining brightly in the green grass of any open meadow that I happened to pass by. Winter was the last thing to be expected, but it's not called Winter Ridge for nothing. I awoke to a wonderful soft snowfall, of a couple of inches, increasing to four by the time I meandered down the west slope to Thompson Reservoir, where the campers there were only experiencing a bit of rain.


It was a wonderful, magical snowfall, and it's been on my list to paint since then. The soft snowfall at my camp on April 4th this year, got me to thinking about my June 9th, 2018, Winter Ridge experience, and so I dug out the reference photos, and painted away. I had taken the photos during an intermission in the snowfall, so the hardest part of the painting was remembering where each and every snowflake had been before the snowfall took its pause;D (chuckle), but I got ‘er done! This small Oil, turned out to be a study, for a larger (9" x 12"), finished Oil painting of this magical moment, so I'm warning you in advance that that one will feature in my next post, and quite a bit more costly, I hasten to add. 


The Pigments used in the painting are: Imprimatura & Drawing: Rublev Italian Burnt Sienna; Pigments: W&N Cobalt & French Ultramarine Blues; Rublev:  Blue Ridge Yellow Ochre, Italian Burnt Sienna, Lead White #1. For more check out my blog at  www.StevenThorJohanneson.blogspot.com

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.
