Pomegranate Muse is creating L'art pour l'art

The first Pomegranate Musing…
After a hiatus that feels as if it lasted an eternity and recent goading from fellow artists, I finally made the decision to ditch the lackadaisical, dilettante mindset that has plagued me as of late, jump head first back into the serious art scene, and live up to the lofty aspirations I once held for myself as a creatrix. I am thrilled to think that through Patreon I have the opportunity to build a sustainable foundation for my eclectic métier and am anxious to give my art the chance to grow and thrive outside of the studio. You’ll notice I don’t have a particular subject matter, specific style, or even a favorite medium with which to work. I have extended periods of time dedicated to photography that are suddenly punctuated by a flurry of watercolors…I may have my nose buried in an oil painting when the perfect haiku bubbles up from my subconscious. Thank you for choosing to become an integral part of the eccentric creative process!  I draw inspiration from everything around me, from hiking, to science, to literature. I am a polymath (OK, maybe a jack of all trades and a master of none, but polymath sounds fancier, don’t you think?) with a conglomeration of interests, thus my art is a sort of life-experience collage. I hope you gain inspiration and relish in the quirks, whims, and curiosities the bohemian life brings.

Tiers
Aril
$2 or more per month
The juicy, ruby red gem that is the pom seed. It may be small, but combined it is mighty, for what is a pomegranate but a conglomeration of arils? This tier allows patrons access to patron-only content, updates, sneak peeks, and pre-sales. 
Persephone's Fate
$6 or more per month
Unlike Persephone's six pomegranate seeds, this 6 does not trap you in Hades for half the year, rather it allows you access to content regarding progress on larger pieces in half-finished limbo and others that have been stuck in the underworld (aka the back of the closet) and are finally seeing the light of day. This tier receives the benefits of the Aril tier as well as access to special Persephone's Fate tier content.
PomRind
$18 or more per month
The tough outer peel that gives the pomegranate that intoxicating, wine dark hue. This tier receives the benefits of all prior tiers as well as a personalized, handmade thank you card from the artist. Keep your eyes peeled for PomMail!
Albedo
$36 or more per month
The strong flesh that holds the arils and gives them a safe haven to grow. This tier receives all prior tier benefits as well access to more personal content (travel writings, journal entries, poetry, stories of where I draw my inspiration, and other artistic ramblings) plus all benefits of prior tiers. This is the PM version of Behind the Music. Lets call it...Behind the Muse.
Persistent Calyx
$60 or more per month
The glorious crown that sits atop the pomegranate distinguishing it from other, less-regal fruits. This tier is for the professional patron, a masterpiece monarch if you will. As such, you will receive all the benefits of prior tiers as well as a monthly piece of PomMail delivered straight to your humble abode. It could be stickers, enamel pins, cards, an art print...who knows what whimsical wonders PomMail will hold. 
Pomme Grenade
$120 or more per month
You are the whole sheBANG...the POMbomb, the fruit grenade! Your contribution ignites the artistic fire, prepare for an explosion of creativity! This tier receives all the benefits of prior tiers as well as a full sized, signed print of your choice.
Pomme Myth
$613 or more per month
Okay, okay...so we know it's a legend that all pomegranates contain 613 seeds, but a legend is what you are! This top PM tier of mythic proportions grants you all of the benefits of prior tiers, access to ALL content, and....a piece of signed **ORIGINAL** artwork created just for you!
Goals
$0 of $150 per month
Not everyone wants to buy or has room for an original piece of artwork. I'd like to start creating high quality, archival reproductions of my work. Reproductions of various sizes give art portability for the nomadic types and a facet of collectability and affordability for the amateur curator who wants to liven up a room with a variety of pieces. When I reach $150 per month I will start printing and selling reproductions in a variety of sizes.
