Artist's Notes

Artist's Notes:

I have a book list to paint (not the shape of books but the message in them) and this book - 'Kiss That Frog' by Brian Tracy & Christina Tracy Stein was recently added to the list. They beautifully described how to remove our fear and take another step move forward by borrowing the story of fairy tale 'the Frog Princess'. According to this book, if we look at our fear (that frog) right and remove it (by kissing it), the fear will turn into the positive elements( handsome prince) that exist within every situation. I love the analogy and wanted to paint this book. And I immediately knew how to convert the message into a painting. I guess you already know how I did it. **wink** **wink**

After straying so many years by having not-art-related jobs, I finally concluded that art is where I belong and decided to give myself another try before it's too late. Now I turned 40 this year and chasing my childhood dream. I feel great to follow my heart and hope to prove myself that an ordinary artist can make a decent living by doing what she/he loves to do. And listing some of paintings as a dollar auction is one of my clumsy steps that heading to my goal. Thank you for reading and happy bidding !‚Äč

I have been listing some of my paintings as a dollar auction since October. 2015. It has been a great experience for me and I have enjoyed every part of it. I really appreciate everyone who's bidden for my paintings. I'll keep listing my new paintings as a dollar auction this month as well, however, the auction price will go back to normal rate ($100) from December, 2015. Although the rate will go back to a fixed price, I'll do a dollar auction once a month.

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.
