The Great $30 Art Sale and Benefit!

For one day only, I will be having a super-duper sale on drawings of all mediums, colors,  and sizes on my website for only $30! Yep that’s right, for one day only you can purchase an original unframed drawing for $30 smackers.

All proceeds will go to me. Because I have cancer. Also because I said so. I’d hate to use the word “benefit”, but that is what we can classify this as if you want. Essentially, this will aid me in taking care of some unexpected expenses I’ve been slammed with, as well as the things you don’t have covered under insurance. Little things like the gas spent to and from treatment; the parking garage (because God forbid Cleveland Clinic validate your parking when you have cancer!), and a trip to Sephora because my eyebrows and eyelashes are falling out and I would like to look somewhat normal. There’s more, but you get the idea. This also gives me a great way of unloading lots of sketches and drawings that don’t get exhibited or are sitting in a box doing nothing.

I’m not one to ask for charity of any sort, but reality has set in, and because of my treatment schedules, I am working on commissions at a much slower pace as well as unable to teach or do personal instruction until late fall. So I thought a sale of drawings gives you good people something original and affordable, while at the same time, doesn’t make me look like a total mooch! Win-win for all!

The sale will open on Wednesday, July 28th beginning at Noon 1:30pm EST. I will be listing everything with a title, description and PayPal button at http://arabellaproffer.com/sale.html The price includes shipping. At 1:30 am EST the sale will end and everything taken down.

Here is just one of the drawings that will be for sale, part of an Ian Schrager hotel series I fooled around with…

Hope everyone can find something they like and give it a good home.

    Hi, I hope you will offer shipping to Canada because I am Canadian, I love your art, and my birthday is on August 27th (which is a Friday, by the way. That Wednesday is August 25th.)

    I am sorry to hear about your situation. I suggest you add a donation button to your site. There’s no shame in asking for help when one needs it.

      Thanks Andree! No donation buttons for me! It makes me feel like a chump. This way, at least people get something in return and I get to free up some space in my studio. And yes, I’ll be shipping to Canada.

    I will find at least one, two or three to frame.
    I’m a schmuck taking advantage of such a great deal.
    Peace and healing thoughts.

    Hey AP! I hope everything works out for you, I am really thinking about you. The big C, I can’t believe it. That little bitch of a tumor doesn’t know who he’s messing with.

    Don’t know if it will help but I posted on hellomynameisart for you. I want to hopefully drive a bunch of peeps your way.

    Stay strong.

    I am so sorry to hear about your cancer! Sadly, I cannot afford to pay 30 dollars right now, even though I would LOVE to buy one of your pieces. But, if I ever have enough money in the future, I will definitely donate towards your medical expenses. Good luck with your treatment! You will be in my thoughts!

    Save all those receipts and write down all those miles – if you amass enough (I believe $1000) you can write them off on your taxes as expenses incurred due to illness. Save EVERYTHING – if you buy lunch near the hospital it’s a legit expense because you’re there due to your treatment. Kind of a PITA I know, but it can help…..

    Best of luck with the sale, and “FUCK cancer”!
