Help Japan Challenge – DPW Auction
4.5×12″ pastel, © 2010 Takeyce Walter
SOLD to a collector in Ballston Spa, NY
The theme this week for the Daily PaintWorks challenge is “home”. The “Help Japan Challenge” has been set up with an auction to encouraging artists and art lovers to aid in the relief efforts in Japan.
I’ve decided to contribute this painting which depicts a road that I often take to my home. My heart goes out to all the people displaced by this catastrophe, and I hope this donation can help some of them find their way home.
The proceeds (minus S/H and processing fees) raised by the sale of this piece will be donated to the Japanese Red Cross to aid in their relief efforts. Once the sale is complete, and the donation made, I will send documentation to the buyer for their records.
I’ve set the starting bid well below the retail value of this painting at $85 to encourage bidding.
Please take a moment to visit the site. Over 200 beautiful works have already been donated, and more are being added each day.
Until next time…
