What? Again? Another Paint-a-thon?

Artist BZTAT

I know, I just did a paint-a-thon. I haven’t even gotten those paintings in the mail yet, because the weather has prevented me from varnishing them.

The Paint-a-thons have been so fun and popular, though, I decided to do another one for the holidays. This one won’t be for 24 hours. I think 12 hours is long enough.

So here’s the plan.

  1. I will paint as many paintings as I can between 10 AM to 10 PM (EST) on Thursday, Dec. 9.  All of the paintings will be posted for auction here on my website the following day (Friday, Dec. 10). Bidding will conclude Sunday, Dec. 12, 2010 with a Twitter party from 9-11 PM, with final bids closing at 11pm.
  2. I will be posting photos of the works in progress throughout the Paint-a-thon to Twitter via Twitpic and to Facebook. Follow the hashtag #bztatptg on Twitter for the latest.
  3. Each painting will be approximately 12″ X 16″ on wood. There will be a $40 minimum bid on each painting. There will also be a $25 USA and $45 international shipping fee for each painting. Allow 2-4 weeks for shipping, as the painting will need hardware and other finishing before they can be shipped. (If you would like to bid on a painting to give as a gift, I will be happy to send a card with the painting’s image on it if the painting cannot be mailed before Christmas.)

This Paint-a-thon is to keep this artist in business. The holidays have been tight for me, so I cannot do this one for free. I will however, donate 10% of the proceeds to Cripple Creek Ferals and Friends in thanks for their support in rescuing my sweet little Okey. I will also put up a widget so that anyone who would like to make a donation to Cripple Creek can do so.

I hope that you will join me throughout the Paint-a-thon. I am open to suggestions for painting ideas! Leave your thoughts in the comments below.  Thanks in advance for your support.
