Auction to Help Japan - more than $24,000 raised!

                                                 Sweet Dreams by LK Jeffers, oil on panel

Daily Paintworks is sponsoring an auction to help victims of the tragedies in Japan. The theme of the auction is "Home". Home to me is having a sleeping cat curled up on my lap or next to me. It's so peaceful to watch them sleep. I'm donating "Sweet Dreams", an original 5 x7 oil painting of Wally, to the auction. Since it's for a good cause, I've set the initial bid at a low price - $50 including free shipping within the US. Click on "Sweet Dreams" to see my auction page or click here to go to the auction site to see all of the entries.  To see the current price for any particular work, click on the photo, and then click on the "Buy this painting" link. If you should decide to bid on any paintings, registration is fast and easy. Each painting will be available for bidding for seven days after it is posted online. The bidding on "Sweet Dreams" ends at 9PM on Monday, March 28th. Artists will continue posting paintings all week so keep checking back to see new auction pieces.

Silkscreens Revisited

A few years ago I created a series of single edition hand-pulled silk-screen prints which were collages of different images.  Some were created using the silk-screen process only and some included drawings and photographs.  Encaustic applied to many prints added additional layers of complexity.  The majority of these prints will not be for sale.  Instead, I have created a new series of digital art based on these original, single edition silk-screen prints.  They have the wonderful look and texture of silk-screens and encaustic.  Two of these are on display here: "Memories of Dad" (below) and "Primitive Passion" (above).
