Five treasures

There are five items in the MOVING TO OKOTOKS online auction that I would like to draw your attention to, as they are among a very small number of items that are waiting for their first bids.  They each of their merits, though those positive attributes are in the eye of the beholder.  My assessment is purely from my perspective.

Barack Obama

This gallery canvas print featuring President No. 44 of the USA sits in my field of view in Birdsong Studio.  Both his countenance and his message inspire me every day.  Clients who come to pick up purchases are also drawn in by its essence.

Freeform in Teal

In my opinion, this 16" x 20" would be the steal of the auction.  It is Heather's personal favourite of all her abstract works and one that seems to catch the eyes of everyone who comes into our small creative space.  It's so hard to communicate how fascinating and beautiful it is in a small picture on the auction site.


This original painting was done just a few short weeks ago.  It features one of the most inspirational figures of the previous century.  Valued at $575, it is a steal of a deal with a starting bid of only $200.  You see we want to have to move as few pieces of art as possible.  You'll be helping us by giving this a home.

McNeilly the Meerkat

For those who follow my work and love the animal portraits, this is the one to get.  It was created in the Kindergarten class at Dave McNeilly Public School up in Parson's Creek.  Its venerable subject is one of the residents of the Calgary Zoo.

Mern's Water Buffalo

This is one of Heather's favourites of my animal paintings.  It might help that she was there when we met.  The water buffalo and I were intently looking at one another for quite some time as it cooled itself off in the slough behind Mern's house in rural Cambodia.

The auction closes on Sunday at 9 pm MST.  It's important to state the timezone, because we have lots of bidders from across Canada.  You can register for free and get in on the fun by clicking here.
