After Twit2art, here comes Auction Art

Belgian artist Jan Leenders seems to have more tricks up his sleeve than just his recently introduced Twit2art project, which Ernst-Jan wrote about. He has set up the website AuctionArt.be, where his new painted creations will be put up for auction, always opening at 1€.

Today, he painted his dog.

Bidding is done by e-mail, and the auction ends after exactly 5 days since the last bid is made (the buyer does have to confirm the sale by e-mail within another 24 hours). Every new painting put up for auction will be announced with a blog post, and the time of publication is the starting point for the 5-day window. There’s a handy ticking clock at the bottom of each post to keep you informed of the timeframe.

You can track auctions via Twitter, FlickrRSS feed and/or by subscribing to an e-mail list.
