Artist's Notes

Artist's Notes:

‚ÄčHello! This is a painting I did a couple of months ago. It's a scene I stumbled upon here in Eugene a while back. I loved the colors of the house. I meant to post it a few weeks ago, but kept putting it off.

Meanwhile, after a couple weeks of no painting at all (letting my fields lie fallow), I got a text from a friend who owns a gallery here in town. She suggested a small show next year. With new stuff. All larger than my normal work. At first I said no, but then I realized it would get me out of my rut. Give me motivation to paint the things I've been wanting to but have been too afraid.

Afraid of what? Failing. Isn't that what gets us all? Well, I guess I am only human.

The main thing I've been wanting to paint but haven't because of fear is...people. Not like portraits necessarily, but faces, up close. So I started with my son, as an experiment. I was terrified that it wouldn't look like him, but I think it really does. If you know him, please write and reassure me on this. I'll post a better picture later. It's 16x16 inches. See my blog for progress shots.

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.
