Artwork Auction for a Good Cause

Fifteen by Karen Stiehl Osborn
15″ square; Karen’s hand-painted & dyed cotton cloth and canvas.

My friend, Karen Stiehl Osborn, has a soft heart.  Even though she already had two dogs, she agreed to foster the cutest little rescue dog.  Why?  Poor Chili had a leg amputated and Karen didn’t want Chili to recover in a rescue kennel.

Now Karen is auctioning the artwork shown above to help the rescue pay for Chili’s surgery.

The auction is now open.  All the details you need to bid are right here. Click on over and give Karen a helping hand in her mission of kindness.

Art Now For Autism – This Week Only!

Claudine Intner’s quest to raise funds for autism research is reaching new heights this year with over 90 artists participating.  Art Now For Autism, Claudine’s brainchild, is a reverse auction this year with prices dropping throughout the week.

Art Now For Autism began today and will continue through October 10.  This wonderful piece of fiber art donated by Patty VanHuis-Cox to Art Now For Autism has now joined my collection:

The Art Now For Autism reverse auction allows you to browse by types of art (art dolls, digital art, drawing, fiber art, jewelry, mixed media & collage, painting, photography, printmaking & artist books, prints, and three-dimensional art), subject matter or artist.   I know I will be stopping back throughout the week as well as following Claudine’s tweets about the progress and success of this fundraiser.

Today’s the day – support an artist in her fight

Anna Millea

Hearts For Anna, a fundraiser for Anna Millea, opens today at 10 a.m. Central time and continues through Sunday, August 16. Anna is fighting breast cancer – again. The disease has returned aggressively and is now in her bones, requiring an extreme sixteen rounds of chemotherapy. She has no insurance, having been deemed uninsurable due to her “pre-existing condition.”

More than 100 miniature artworks, no larger than 5″ x 7″, have been donated to raise funds to assist Anna in her fight. The items will be sold first-come, first serve, with all items selling for $100 on Day 1, $75 on Days 2 – 4, and $50 on Day 5. All money will go to a fund that goes directly to Anna Millea to help pay for her medical bills.

Morning Song

I don’t know Anna, but I happily made and donated Morning Song.  This could so easily happen to any of us.  I just participated in my sixth ACS Relay For Life in celebration of my Dad being able to say, after colon cancer, “It’s 15 years and I’m still here.”  I raise funds for the ACS in honor of my Dad, but welcome this opportunity to make a difference in one person’s fight.

UPDATE:  Just saw a Tweet from Lisa, CEO of Artful Home, that buyers should create an account to expedite their bidding.  I did so from the Wish List page from the main Artful Home page.
