Artist's Notes

Artist's Notes:

I've loved horses all my life and they were a huge part of my growing up years. Then I went and married a city boy and I don't get to be around them as much as I used to. So whenever I see a horse now and I can be close to them, I feel a pull in their direction stronger than almost anything I've felt before. I saw this horse last winter in a field I was driving by when out looking for new painting material. I pulled my car over and walked over to the fence. There were a few horses in the field but this one headed in my direction right away, whether she was hungry for human attention or carrots I can't say. Or maybe she recognized what I was feeling, that I needed to see her and rub my hand over her velvet nose and fluffy winter coat. The way she calmly gazed at me, so gentle, friendly and curious ignited all those horse love emotions I'd felt for so many years as a girl. It really is true what they say about the eyes. They are the windows to the soul.

Auction Notes

Auction Notes:

Horses have always held an almost gravitational pull for me. Whenever I see one I have to be near them. I saw this horse when I was out driving around last winter looking for things to paint. I spotted an empty field with a few horses in it and pulled over. As soon as this horse spotted me heading in her direction she ambled over to the edge of the fence to investigate. Whether she was hungry for human attention or carrots I can't say. But the way she looked at me, with such gentle friendliness and curiosity spoke to my heart. It really is true what they say about the eyes, they are the windows to the soul. 

This painting ships to you flat, wrapped in a cello bag and backed with sturdy foam core board to prevent bending.

DPW Auction

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.
