Auction time is almost here


We've been adding to our next online auction throughout the month of October.  And as we are expecting a huge order of gallery canvas prints in the next few days, a few surprises will be added before the fun begins at 6 am on Sunday morning.  

Heather and I wanted an easy way to share with our followers the entirety of our gallery canvas print inventory.  We thought we would try this and see how it goes.

When you visit the auction site you will see a starting bid price and a BUY NOW price.  If you really want something and are ready to pay the BUY NOW price BEFORE the start of the auction, all you have to do is send me a private note.  You can connect with me through the Russell Thomas Art Facebook page, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn or email (  After the auction begins, you'll need to bid the BUY NOW price to grab it.


We are offering several benefits with these BUY NOW prices - the lowest we have ever offered.  First of all, you get free shipping to anywhere in Canada.  That is a savings of between $25 and $40 depending on the size of the gallery canvas print and where you are in the country.  If you're not in Canada, no worries.  You'll get an automatic $25 shipping credit.  In most cases, your purchases will be upgraded to an EP or Embellished Print.  That's a value of between $50 and $75.  Finally, you will receive a COA or Certificate of Authentication, a document to hang onto in case you ever need to show the provenance of the piece. 

Peppered among the wide selection of gallery canvas prints by myself and my talented wife Heather Thomas are several original works.  We've snuck them in there giving you a chance to grab an original piece of art at incredibly low starting prices.

If you want to dive into the bidding action, that's awesome.  Starting bid prices range from $50 to $125, based on the size of the piece and, in some cases, how long it has been hanging around the studio.  Our intention is to find homes for as many of these artworks as possible. 

Of course, your support of this auction supports our continued charitable efforts.  There are two pieces - originals - that are being sold with net proceeds going to the Okotoks Arts Council. 

So, if you want to register for free for this auction, click here, and click LOGIN on the upper right corner of the screen.  The auction site will ask for your email address and you'll be set to go.  The auction runs from Sunday, November 1st at 6 am to Sunday, November 8th at 9 pm MST.
