140 Hours Global Haitian Refief Art Auction

I have had the exciting priviledge of offering my paintings for sale through one of the most cutting edge technologies on the web, the 140 Hours of Fame Art Auctions on Twitter. 140 Hours promotes emerging & established artitst and gives back to charity, a beautiful combination.

The recent earthquake disaster in Haiti has caused the creators and artists of 140 Hours to put together what is fast becoming an enormous global art auction with 100% of the sales going to Haitain Relief.

I personally have donated the two paintings below. Boutique is small so even if your budget is limited you can still help and Afternoon Color is larger so if you are in a position to give more you'll have an opportunity to bid on this piece.

Boutique, 6x8in acrylic on wood panel
painted on location in Guilford, CT
opening bid $30
(retail price: $300)

Afternoon Color 24x24, acrylic on linen
painted on location at Hammonasset State Park, Madison, CT
Opening bid: $80
(Retail price:$800)

Donate to Haitain Relief efforts and take home a beautiful original painting as a reminder of how ordinary people moved by compassion can come together anmd make a difference in the world.

The 140 Hours Haitian Relief auction begins January 29, 2010
