Will you support me?
Many artists have decided to help during the recent Australian Bushfire Catastrophe. My contribution was to produce small ACEO paintings, hoping to sell them for the reasonable price of $10.00 on eBay and donate the proceeds to help the Bushfire Appeal. I choose eBay as Bluethumb and Art Lovers have a minimum price of $100 and I did not expect anyone to donate this kind of money to support me.
It turned out to be a labour of love as on average I worked about 2 hours on each painting before I could upload them to eBay. Even this process was time consuming and tiresome.
I covered the mailing cost of $1.10 for postage and even so eBay allowed for 10 products to be listed for free, they still charged me $0.66 per sale. So, every ACEO I sell is costing me $1.76. Allowing for paper and paint, printing ink and cello cover, my material cost to produce one ACEO for sale is about $2.00
I am still donating the full amount of $10.00 I receive for the eBay auctions but will not continue to offer the small paintings through eBay after I have sold all the 10 paintings I had listed.
I will now try to sell the small ACEO paintings at $12.00 through this website to cover my cost, and will still donate $10.00 to the Currumbin Wildlife Hospital. Please support me by purchasing one of the ACEO’s I still have prepared. They are now available on my website. Please spread the word.
