Amy Crehore's "Charity by Numbers" painting. (for even Larger version)
The "Charity by Numbers" art show went up on ebay after a gala event at the Corey Helford Gallery in Culver City, CA on Saturday night, Feb 10, 2007. The ebay auction, which is happening right now, will benefit the Alliance for Children's Rights 100%. Over 100 top alternative artists transformed vintage paint-by-number paintings into wacky, beautiful and surreal works of art. More and more paintings are being added to the auction with more and more well-known names. Here are some details of my painting that the ebay auction site does not show (it is the size of a large FED EX box, plus frame).It is really quite exciting to watch this auction with so many cool artists.Come on and try your luck!

Here is one of my brand new "Blues Gals" paintings. This one has a bear holding a vintage Gibson mando-bass and it is called "Feed the Bear Blues". My other new painting is called, "Losin' My Cones Over You" (just featured on boingboing). I had a third painting up on my website ("Green Snake Stumble"), but I decided that it needed more work. So, I am back in the studio making some additions and finishing it up.
My oil paintings all have many layers of paint to intensify the colors and to make the figures fully-realized. Sometimes I will paint all day on a face and not like it, so I wipe it off and start again the next day. I even sand it down if I have to. I painted the face on the "cones" painting probably 100 times until I felt it was right. That's how it goes. Nothing comes easy!
