Currently, I am a street artist. It is my hope to move in the commercial and residential art spaces. I am beginning this crowdfunder to help me do just that. I am asking you to help me with the goal of opening a studio and gallery. Right now I am offering you pieces of my art work and for those who really appreciate it, I will come to Paint a mural in your basement ( on a brick wall preferably).
I want share with the crowdielove community my love of painting but I have a mental roadblock. I believe that art should be experienced in its native format. The experience of art is changed by its surroundings. I don't understand how pictures on a screen can be a proxy for a canvas on a wall. But I'm open to new ideas and I trust that sharing an image of my creations will help to convey the passion I have for my art. Your feedback and support will help me to understand how I can embrace technology to share my art with the world.
For the season of Advent, I will create for the crowdielove community an exclusive new work entitled “Nativity Icon”. This new work will result in a 48”x48” foot acrylic painting on canvas of the Nativity. I will share with my backers the process I use to envision, design and paint a new Icon.
All levels of support are appreciated and there are online and giclee reproductions of my paintings at several pledge levels so that everyone can participate. All crowdielove backers will receive a Nativity greeting card via email and my deepest gratitude! I will also create custom Icons based on your two favorite colors exclusively for my crowdielove backers.
I have an established career distributing my works to local galleries throughout the Pacific Northwest. I sell my art from my home studio, at art festivals, and have exhibitions at multiple public gathering spots. I also host art parties out of my home studio/gallery. I also teach classes to students to help give back to my community with those who share my passion for art. My project will help to expand my service to those in my community.
Thank you for taking the time to share my dream. I wish you all a wonderful Holiday Season and an artful new year!
RISK AND CHALLENGES
I've designed the project to include pledge rewards most of which I have executed in the past. I are trying to determine if exposure to the process of painting to a broader community online will generate interest in my art. With your feedback and support I know this will be a success. Pledge Rewards delivery timing will vary based on who signs up first as well as the type of reward. Generally I can accommodate special requests. If you have questions regarding a pledge level please direct message me above. International Shipping is available for larger pledge levels however rates vary dramatically by country. Please contact us directly for custom shipping options to meet your needs!
