Auction // Big Wave #5

OK, lets try our hand at this. Up for auction is the original oil painting “Big Wave #5”. 20″x20″, freshly completed December 2013, framed and ready to hang.

50% of the proceeds will go directly to my 2 year old’s daycare facility.

This piece is the 5th in an ongoing series of these minimal works, the first of which was completed in 2005. I will run this honour system auction through a few platforms: Instagram, Facebook, mattdurant.com and email. To place a bid, you can simply let me know through comments or messages on any of those platforms, and I will update all the threads so we all know where bids are currently at.

The auction starts now and will run for one week until Friday December 13th at midnight EST.

Bidding will start at $40 at $5 minimum increments AND THERE IS NO RESERVE.

I am not expecting a huge winning bid, I just want to do this for fun and to help out my son’s daycare facility’s fundraising efforts. They are a great bunch and, well he’s my boy. List value for the painting is $700.

Current bid: $40 $60 $100 $125 $150 $175 $200 $225 $250 $275 $305 $500 $550
