The Corey Helford Gallery in Culver City, Ca is sponsering an art auction for charity - all proceeds going to the alliance for Children's Rights. The Gallery asked approximately 100 different artists to contribute, Shag being one of them.(others include the Pizz, Gary Baseman, gary panter, and many more)

What makes this auction interesting is that each artist was provided with an already existing Paint By Number (PBN) painting, and asked to alter it in their own way. The results are quite fascinating - I spent the last hour looking at all of the variations. What is neat that if you visit each individual ebay painting site, you can click on the alternate picture to see the paiting 'transform' back to the original, underlying painting.

The auction ends on Saturday, February 17.

Shag's Polynesian themed painting can be viewed here...

The link to the Corey Helford can be found here - it provides a handy link to the main auction ebay site.

What a great concept. I love thrift store art, and I know a couple of people that collect paint-by-numbers pieces. And I love modified thrift store art (when well executed).

Here are some pieces of added on thrift store art that I own, the first is from my old friend Charles Schneider, he added the Tikis, and some of the flowers to integrate them better:

And here are two small thrift store paintings that my friend Moritz R., cover designer of the BOT, found here in CA when visiting from Germany. They were in their frames already, and Moritz added the Tikis:

Industrial Tiki

This one was a generic nature scene, but it had little bamboo sticks already attached to the painting. Moritz added the real leaves, painted in the nude on the rock, and then he took a dried up tube of brown oil paint and sculpted the Tiki out of it, so the piece is partly 3D:

A worthy cause... too bad there is a need for such a cause to help abused and impoverished children.

For more info and auctions for the Alliance for Children's Right, go

BTW, the Tiki in the pix seems way too interested in that girl.

It turns out that Amyaloha had started a thread about this charity PBN auction way before I first became aware of it. Here is the link to that thread, to pull the two together. If you haven't visited it already, check it out to see her way cool painting, along with another Polynesian themed PBN I was unable to resist.
