, withIn case you haven't noticed, I like to paint. A lot. And, I don't do it because I want to make money (although that is a bonus and if you look to the right, I do have an Etsy shop. Click it, I dare you. Sorry, shameless plug.) Anyway, I paint because I have a inner desire to create and that arting comes in the form of either working in clay or painting in some form.
Well, if I want to keep creating and keep my inner peace, I need to either get paint over my pieces or sell them. Since most of my pieces have texture on them, it is easier to sell them. And, while my Etsy shop is cool and all, it doesn't get much traffic. That is my fault, I am not a good promoter of my own art shop.
Anyway, I decided that I would have an art auction on my Facebook Page, MissJayBar Art. In about 2 weeks, I will start the auction and let it run for 5 days, July 10-14 (Monday 9am -Friday11:59p ). During that time, people can bid on the painting they are interested in owning. Each painting will have an opening bid. At the end of the auction, the person with the highest bid wins the painting. The cost of shipping (with the exception of 2 paintings that are very large and would be easiest if they could stay local) if the person is not an Austin local will be covered by me.
I have never done this before, but I am looking forward to it. Hopefully, it will create some new fans of my work, and maybe also drum up some business for my Etsy shop. Who knows.
Here are the paintings that will be included in the Auction. For size information, go here, to the paintings page. In about a week I will preview the pieces again on my Facebook page, with their opening bid prices. Hope to see you at the auction.
