Cornish sacred site fundraiser

Read more ...

A few years ago, my book ‘Celtic Saints of Western Britain’ (Avalonia 2015) was published, and featured my original paintings of many Cornish saints. I have decided to auction off those that remain, in aid of Cornish sacred site preservation.

The painting of St Clether is going into a private collection recording the history of the well, with the sale proceeds going to fund the upkeep of the holy well chapel.

The proceeds of the remaining six paintings will be split between St Clether Holy Well Chapel and CASPN (Cornish Ancient Sites Protection Network), a charity which organises volunteers to keep sacred sites clean and accessible. 

The silent auction starts on 15 FEBRUARY 2021 AT 9AM and runs for one week, ending on 22 FEBRUARY 2021 AT 9AM. Please get involved to support this cause and own a unique piece of original published artwork. 

The paintings below St Clether are, left to right, top row: St Keyne, St Samson, The 777 Irish Saints arriving at Hayle. 

Left to right, bottom row: St Michael, St Piran, St Ia.  

Please share with anyone you think may be interested, and contact me directly if you have any questions or would like a closer look at the pieces.

When bidding on an auction item, if you enter more than the minimum increment for an item then your bid will be used for proxy bidding. This is how it works:
1. You enter the absolute maximum that you are willing to bid for an item.
2. jumblebee places a bid on your behalf, using the minimum amount required to make you the highest bidder, i.e. current bid price plus bid increment OR the reserve price, if there is one and it can be covered by your proxy bid.
3. jumblebee continues to bid on your behalf, whenever you are outbid by another member's bid, until your maximum bid is exceeded or the auction is won.
4. jumblebee will notify you by email if your maximum bid is outbid by another member and provided the auction is still running, you will then have a chance to enter a new maximum bid if you wish.
For example:
The current bid on an auction item is £100. The minimum increment is £10. You enter a bid of £150 (your maximum bid).
Using your bid, but increasing only by the minimum increment, jumblebee sets the current bid to £110.
Another person bids £130 but they are immediately outbid by jumblebee bidding on your behalf and the current bid goes up to £140.
The auction finishes and you have won the auction item at a price of £140.
