This painting has been placed in the "Help Japan Challenge" auction at Daily Paintworks. All the money raised by the sale of this work will be donated to the Japanese Red Cross to aid in their relief efforts. I'll send documentation to the buyer when the donation is made.

I have set the starting bid at a very low $75 for this painting to encourage bidding in this 7 day auction. The winning bidder can pay by check or through PayPal. Please visit the Daily Paintworks Challenge to consider bidding on this, or the works of the many other artists who are donating art for this cause. Thank you.

(Note: the number of artists submitting to this challenge will continue to grow, so please keep checking back to the challenge site to see new auction pieces.)

Don,
Great entry, should bring a good sum for the auction. It is a very good painting. Grandparent's Home looks very inviting and familiar.

I've wanted to do a painting of my grandparent's place but I'm sure I would be too attached to let it go to someone outside the family. Thank you for supporting such an important cause.

William, thank you. I hope the auction as a whole raises a good sum. I'm already encouraged by the number and quality of artist's entries.

Hi Lydia--really nice to hear from you--thanks. I've alerted family members about this auction, so maybe one of them will buy it and keep it in the family.

I really like your new paintings.

Don Gray said...

Thanks a lot, Lisa. Great to see your recent paintings.
