I'm trying something new. Animal Place Sanctuary is the midst of a big move to bigger and larger Sanctuary. I would like to try and auction my paintings where all the profit goes to them. I intend to only keep the portion that would enable me to buy replacement materials and reimburse me for the shipping and handling.
What do you think? Any suggestions/comments?
From my fellow expert artist/blogger pals, how do you insert the ebay widget on your page so I don't have to tell my viewers to go HERE to see this on ebay?
I am really loving this background color in this painting!
Hey, gal, I think the auction idea is an excellent one. Just make sure your contact info is securely on the back of the paintings - also, I'd write a press release about your project and submit it to local news outlets - Love the goat, too. They are such oddballs.
beautiful goat Sheila.
Love the idea Sheila!!
This new painting is terrific and i agree with Hellenne on the background.....just beautiful!!
Its a while since we communicated.
Its good to see your lovely work again.
Love this goat and the background is so perfect.
Your ideas are always great!!!
Love your creative mind.
Sheila, I love "Nate." I agree with Carrie. Make sure you getthe most publicity you can from your generosity.
Such a beautiful painting, I love his happy, confident expression!
Cool goat and cool background color! Unusual but it works.
Sheila, love the expression and delightful charming character in Nate. Wondeful colors too. Your fantastic.
The idea of giving all your time and effort to the cause of these animals is so cool. More power to you.
What a cute little goat! Beautifully done, Sheila!
Great color and brush strokes in this painting. Lots of energy. Good luck with the auction. I'm not sure about the ebay widget, but for the ebay store, I saved the logo as a picture, then under add gadget, I added a picture and then copy and pasted the link to the gadget picture. You can get the logo from anywhere, or anyone's blog I think. Does this help??

Great job on the goat, and I love the background!
This painting makes me SMILE! great job and love the colors.
What a generous idea Sheila. If you do more work like this goat you will raise a nice sum of money for them I am sure. Sorry I can't help you with the technical question you needed help with. Take care,
WONDERFUL goat, Sheila! Great expression.

You are such a genuinely nice person Shelia! This painting is beautiful and so are you!
What a wonderful happy image! Best of luck with your Sanctuary project!
There's a special look to a goat's eyes. And there it is in your painting. He's (she?) just charming. Great job!
Wonderful goat Sheila!! It's very expressive with the background of turquoise and the look on his(?)face.
Your idea of auctioning sounds like a good one to me...good luck with that!
Sorry I can't help you with the widget.
eBay partners with Mission Fish for this exact purpose....for eBay sellers to donate a portion of their items to charity.
I've used them before for my own auctions in the past.
You may have to do a couple of searches within eBay to find out about it.
A large number of charities work with Mission Fish already but I'm not sure if the one you mentioned is on their list.
E-mail me if you need more info!
