About Me

My photo
blonde, blue eyed, do you want my likes and dislikes? Just Kidding. I'll fill this out at some time when I know exactly how to describe myself..which might be by someone else, post-mortum, only because I don't think I could sum myself up entirely, because people in general change everyday and can never make up their minds and if they are adamant about something? Well then they're not open to new ideas, research,and realizations. Everyday something happens that makes us different the next day than what we were the day before. That's life.

About The Art Auction For Dogs In Brazil

This is somewhat more of a silent auction, yes. We don't want people to turn away from it if a price tag scares them. We also want to protect people's identity. Once we receive a 4 figure bid on one, then we will state that we've received a bid of this amt. but not from whom. From there it's whoever has the highest bid.
Because it's for Dogs In Brazil, it has made me let go of my art from my emotional attachments & turning down several thousand dollar offers in the past because of that attachment. I will be sad to see them go, but they're going to save lives.

Each piece has it's own world to it. I don't plan out my paintings. I just paint. I make a decision here, another there, as I'm going. At some point the piece starts to tell me where it's going. At that point I can see. Until then, the end result is always a mystery. I'm a very emotional painter. At least that's what my mother tells me.
The pieces do not have a base price. It is an art auction, but not just that, it is also for an incredible charity. So we're hoping people will look at where the money is going. Yes you're bidding on a piece of art I could never reproduce because of the way that I paint. If something were to happen to it, it would be gone forever, but you're also bidding to save lives, which once gone, is gone forever too.

Think in your mind and heart. Read about the @emmydib, Dogs In Brazil. The motion picture is also out now as well
How much would you want to give to them & does the piece make you feel anything?    
                                                                 Does it speak to you?
Thank You,
