A Thursday Afternoon Auction on the Island of La Grande Jatte

Well, all day Thursday, really...and into Friday...

Today's auction is a big'n!!!  It's hard for me to part from my paintings, but I know that this one will be a fun one for someone to have in their home.  (Rather than me keeping it in a stack of paintings in my studio...!)  This is my balloon animal take on Seurat's "Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte, painted on canvas paper in acrylics (11.75" x 15.5").

The rules are the same as ever:

As soon as I post this (at ~9am EST on 1/28/16), the auction will open.  Comment below with your bid (bidding will begin at $35).  Each bidder should at $5 to their bid and continue in that manner. (You're welcome to add more than that to your bid, but I think $5 is a good incremental increase.)  Keep checking back from time to time to see if you have been outbid!

The auction will remain open until 10:00am EST tomorrow (January 29, 2016) - you'll have over 24 hours to bid!  At 10am I will announce the winner!!  (Payment and delivery methods can be then sorted out between the winner and myself, usually via PayPal.)  

Please keep in mind that this is in good fun and keep things civil and upbeat.  Prints of this painting will also be available by the end of the week if you don't win the auction!  If you have any questions, please email me at katherinedownieartist(at)gmail(dot)com!

Thanks, and happy bidding!
