AUCTION FOR DWAYNE KELLY - ENDING SOON! I know many Yukoners are aware of this, but for those not in the know, one of our local residents and piano player extraordinaire, Dwayne Kelly, recently lost his home to a fire (see story here: goo.gl/SEF2z3.) I'd like to contribute as best I can, so this painting, 'Late Rut', an original oil on canvas 24x30" valued at $2,600 is now up for auction on my Facebook page, auction ends tomorrow January 11th at 6:00PM. Bidding starts at $500.00. Go to the comment section for this post and enter your bid there. If you don't live in Dawson we will ship the painting to you free of charge. All money raised goes directly to Dwayne.

Help for Dwayne Kelly!
