View Full Version : One small painting for mankind....
09-13-2001, 08:02 PM
I wanted to be able to help in some way...and since I'm at home all day painting...I thought what better way than thru my art. Some of you will remember a project we did about a year ago called "My Inner Self". Well, I got that painting out today and finished it! I hadn't realized just how much emotion I had actually put into that piece.
I'm posting it on EBay with 100% of the bid going to the Relief Fund. I wanted to share this with you because some of you may be wanting to do something as an artist to contribute. I know that my resources are limited...but I'm a very fast painter! If you'd like to see the auction, click http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1465278402 here!
Many of the EBSQ artists have auctions going for this same purpose!

Excellent idea, Carly. Very nice painting too. What relief fund is this?

This was a wonderful idea and the painting gives me a smile.

What a wonderful idea Carly.
The relief fund eBay is sponsoring is the September 11th Fund.
It was formed almost immediately after the attack by United Way and the New York Community Trust.
Almost every credible business organization across the nation is helping to facilitate donations to this organization, I came here tonight because I thought I saw some familiar styles in the Auction for America auctions.
eBay's goal of $100 million dollars in 100 days is simply more ambitious than many programs seeking contributions. And as one of the absolutely most frequented websites on the internet, if they ring up that figure in that time span, the message that we care and how much won't be exactly a secret to the world. no matter what events may be preoccupying the media come the end of 100 days' time.
If any of you have never registered at eBay as a buyer or seller, registering via links on my website would be sincerely appreciated. I am swamped right now with requests from clients and exhibiting artists to put work consigned to me up for auction, and hard put to get the photos and scans done, and every legitimate new registration will fund a scan from slides. When they have slides. Scans from originals run me $20.
Reminder for folks too shy to throw a valuable piece of art to the bargain-hunting wolves at eBay:
It doesn't have to be ARTWORK that you sell in the Auction for America.
If something can be sold at all, you are liable to find a buyer for it at eBay if you keep it listed long enough, and 100 days worth of listings is not all that expensive. You will get a degree of priority viewing no matter what you list as users get the hang of sorting items that are part of the Auction for America effort to look at first.
The CLOSING fees if you sell your item are still chargeable, but those will ALSO be donated to the September 11th Fund, by eBay.
A third option is to simply donate cash through eBay, and if neither of the first 2 options appeals to you, I hope you will exercise the third -- I truly do want to see eBay meet that goal, I have met so many interesting contemporary artists, collectors, and just plain folks in that community.
All the above info about the September 11th Fund was for you, Jean.
And I forgot to say -- way to go, Carly. Yes. I really DID see your painting without having to be pointed to the auction page.
And bless you for posting here first ...
