It find it ironic that artists are often asked to donate their work to charity events, when we’re among the lowest paid professions.  I wasn’t asked to donate a painting for my company’s upcoming silent auction, but I wanted to.  I’m building a “Silent Auction Blog” for them.  It’s actually a very interesting reuse of blogging software: I take the “Comments” functionality and morph it into a bidding mechanism.  Instead of entering a comment, you enter a bid.  Looks like it will work well.  The software we use at work is Moveable Type.  I image my employer wouldn’t mind sharing the code I wrote, so if you use Moveable Type and would like to build a silent auction blog, let me know.

  1. Thanks, Jeff. Yes, it’s new. Just painted a couple of days ago. Wanted something that communicated “hope” for our company’s fundraiser auction.

    Oh, and your painting is varnished now and hanging in our breakfast nook. Beautiful work!
