Artist's Notes

Artist's Notes:

Without doubt, Ocracoke Island is my favorite destination. It is where I go to recuperate, recharge, become inspired, paint, gather reference material, and just have fun Oh, I forgot, I also go to FISH. Much of the reference material I use during the year comes from my yearly visits to the island.
Most of Ocracoke is undeveloped and part of the pristine Hatteras National Seashore. The small historic village is located at the southernmost end of the island and has a fascinating history attached to it. Ferry's from three locations bring visitors and any supplies to the island throughout the year. In the summer the island is bustling with activity but once the school year begins things are different. The island slows down and almost breaths a sigh of relief as the summer dissolves into fall. Now the fishermen come to the island and the pace is much slower.
Silver Lake is the harbor that the village surrounds and is where this sketch originated. I really love painting these little watercolor sketches and hope that you will enjoy it also.

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.
