Maggie Cochran Art Auction - Fundraising for Sea-ChangersRead more ...
Sea-Changers is a UK charity, managed by a small team of volunteers who love the UK’s seas, shores and wildlife.
We give grants to UK marine charities and not for profit organisations for conservation and research projects.
Maggie Cochran is a landscape painter who likes to work in a slightly abstracted fashion while still retaining a sense of place. Maggie is particularly inspired by the west coast of Cornwall and she also enjoys painting her local Solent coast and other locations she has travelled to - including Shetland, which her first auction item depicts.
As a coastal landscape painter she feels passionately about our oceans. Maggie is thrilled to have this opportunity to raise funds to support UK based marine conservation.
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.
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.
