!!AUCTION TIME!! ~ For a great cause!!
Okay Instagram we're having some Friday fun over on facebook, and I thought we'd share the fun here!!! Last week Cole and I did a live paint pour video. He mentioned the idea of selling his paint pour artwork to raise money for an animal shelter that his 4th grade class will be visiting in May. They will be learning about the responsibilities that go along with owning a pet and in the meantime are collecting supplies and donations to take with them to Waggin' Tails Shelter - Torrington, WY.
So, here it is folks, we are going to auction off his beautiful painting!!! It really is very pretty and he did a great job creating it! (Glance at the video over at The Creative Post Market on Facebook if you haven't seen it yet - he even does a magic trick at the end LOL!) **The lucky winner will receive his awesome 14x18-inch original masterpiece!!** Bidding rules: bidding opened at $10, but is currently at $35 on facebook - so that's where it will start here on IG. Please bid in at least $1 bid increments; bidding will end next Friday, April 27th at 3pm MST. Bid in the comments, or message/tag me here @CreativePostMarket. Or find me on Facebook at The Creative Post Market. I will keep everyone updated on Instagram and Facebook what the highest bid is. I will send an invoice to the winning bidder.
I am excited about this opportunity for Cole - many life lessons in this little experiment: empathy, community involvement - local and social, technology and economics. We'd love to have you participate and also share this post so we can support Cole and the animals!! THANK YOU!
New painting up for auction this weekend to help benefit wildlife education.
Oil on Wood
12" x 24"
I started with a beautiful picture of a Great Horned Owl named, Hermes. Before sitting down at the easel, I worked with the photo digitally to come up with the mathematical composition. Then I wanted to show that it was night, but keep it bright and colorful. To do so, I used repeated circles to represent the Earth, moon, and Sun in an abstract manner. To give the sense of the passage of time, I used black to block out sections of the circles, it reminded me of the pre-roll countdown of old movie reels. Hopefully, these elements together grab the attention of the viewer, just like the Owl grabs it's prey.
Proceeds will help @window_to_the_wild and @creativeanimalfoundation programs to educate about wildlife conservation.
If you don’t know what this is about:
Dean Santa is family to Joker's Republic. He recorded the second half of our record (joining in on the gang vocals on Wolves as well) and has always been an inspiration and a friend to me and the band. Recently, Dean has had some misfortune in life when a house fire struck, and we want to do our best to give back! TOMORROW NIGHT we’ll be doing a pop-up public live-stream (on Facebook) art auction with @thebrokenart (the guy who makes all our graphics ‘n’ shit), at The Burrito Bar in Staten Island, NY and then playing our show at Mother Pug's Saloon (where we’ll be making our own contribution as well). Even if you can’t make it out to Staten Island, please tune in and check it out!
Every year we have a special #artshow and #artauction at #Vintagetorquefest There are only a handful of #artists who have contributed every year. Todd Jones is 1 of them. Every year is top notch.
