9:15 PM AUCTION UPDATE: We have a winning bid of $1000 for “The Hideaway”. “Part of the Pattern” is still available.

*********

Okay, here’s the deal: The initial auction to raise funds to aid in the relief of Australian wildlife from the fires was a success. $1750 was the winning bid for the painting offered and that amount (plus a bit more) will be donated to Wildlife Rescue Australia (WIRES), which is the largest wildlife rescue and rehab organization in Australia.

My initial goal was to donate $2000 to this organization. We’re there and that’s a pretty good sum to send them. It will really help in a big way and I can feel pretty good about doing that much.

But I have a real nagging feeling that we can do a little more. That we should do more.

So, I’ve moved the goal to $4000.

That would be twice as much help, right?

To get there I have pulled two more paintings to auction. Both are particular favorites of mine and one has been living with me in the studio for a few years. It was one of those personal pieces that I thought was going to be a permanent fixture here. But doing this seems more important than holding onto a piece of art for myself. Better it is out in the world because it helped a worthy cause.

That piece is Part of the Pattern, which is on paper, matted and framed at 22″ high by 9″ wide. When it was last in a gallery it’s price was $1000. It would be valued at about $1250 now but we will go with its last gallery price for valuation. The bidding on this painting starts at $400 and there is BUY NOW price of $1000.

The second painting I am offering is The Hideaway, below, a painting that always jumps out at me. It is also on paper, matted and framed at 12″ by 12″. It’s value is $1000. The bidding on this painting starts at $400 and there is BUY NOW price of $1000.

So, same rules apply. Auctions both end Saturday, January 18, at 12 noon EST, unless the Buy Now prices is reached.

You can either bid in the comment section or email your bid to me at info@gcmyers.com with the word AUCTION on the Subject line. PLEASE SPECIFY WHICH PAINTING YOU ARE BIDDING ON.
I will pay for shipping and will include a few extra surprises with each. I will also provide proof of the donation being made.

Hope you will take part. Like the saying goes, every little bit helps. Thanks!
