Hello hello! Thank you so much for being here! There are so many amazing things I just couldn't be doing or creating without you!

So let's dive in . . .

WHAT IS PATREON, WHAT DOES IT DO, AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
IN A NUT SHELL:
When you support Whitney Jayne (that's me) :), Or any of your favorite artists through Patreon, you select a monthly amount to contribute... much like you would to a magazine or radio station, or cause, or any other thing you love, want to see succeed, and want more of. In turn, your contribution allows us to create and grow, and do more incredible things for you, and to further the projects, art, and mission we both love. The best part is, that we're doing it Together, and you will receive exclusive thank you gifts along the way. I try really hard to make sure that the gifts I give you back cover your monthly donation and then some! Because your contribution is indescribably, immensely, truly valuable to me, I want to make it worth your time, and I can't thank you enough.

WHAT YOUR CONTRIBUTION TO WHITNEY JAYNE SUPPORTS
You’ll find that the heart of each art piece and project, and truthfully my drive as an artist, is fueled by one simple word . . . CONNECTION . . . because connection is the precursor to caring, and caring is the precursor to action.  I believe we must fight against hate, fear and discrimination, by fighting for love, inclusion, and connection. That’s why I’ve chosen to use my art to help foster connections to each other, animals, and the environment, and to empower, raise awareness, and donate a portion of all proceeds to causes that do the same.

There are currently 3 main projects (and oh so many more on the way) that I do this through, and that your contribution will help foster and support. Check 'em out!

Treasures4Travelers: (Launching soon!) An ongoing treasure hunt game, where players win prizes for collecting awesome experiences and art from amazing destinations and organizations that are not only inspiring, fun, educational and engaging, but also give back to the world in their own way!

Campaigns4Causes: A stand-alone project, but often incorporated as Virtual Destinations in the Treasures4Travelers project, that Uses art to help raise funds and awareness for causes and organizations working to enhance the lives of people, animals, and the environment. 

Art4Activists: My online art shop - where a portion of the proceeds from every purchase benefits a cause of the buyer's choice - providing an easy solution for those who don't want to choose between making a purchase and making a difference.

ONE SPARK IGNITES A WILDFIRE, &  SMALL THINGS MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE 
It is my hope that my art and projects will not only make a difference, but that it may also inspire introspection in others on how we might all use our own gifts to bring our world closer together.

$6500 MEANS THINGS CAN REALLY START TO GET FUN, and YOU START GETTING MUSIC WITH YOUR ART TOO!
Those that know me, know I love to sing and create music. Those that don't know me . . . "Hi. I'm Whitney, and I love to sing and create music." :) (a sample recording is below!) A great deal of my artistic inspiration actually comes from songs and lyrics (sometimes even my own), and I often see vivid imagery that become my next painting when I write or listen to songs.  Music is extremely powerful, and just as visual art can speak to you in ways nothing else can, music can do the same thing. 
so.. what am I getting at? I have long been dreaming of ways I can incorporate my own music in to my paintings... to delve that much deeper in to the meanings and stories behind each one, and to share them in both a visual and musical language that may resonate differently or more powerfully to each individual.  This could easily be done for example, with a musical download that accompanies the corresponding paintings/prints. The only glitch has been, that while I understand the musical world and performing,  I don't know the first thing about recording and equipment, which means I'd have to pay people that can help in that department. There's no need for fancy shmancy here, but it would need to be quality, and $6500/mo would allow me to bring these packages to life, and offer a musical/visual story-telling experience the world has not yet seen.

Here's a recording and an example of what I mean: 
I sang a song called "Safe Harbors" (listen to my phone recorded rehearsal version here) for a community event to address homelessness in my local community. This was also during the time Aleppo was getting pummeled, and immigrants and refugees were being turned away at borders and dying at sea. My heart ached for an effective way to help all of these abandoned people. The music in the song was so powerful, and I believed had the power to soften hearts, but only a few people would hear it, so I turned to my art where I knew I could reach a few more people, and painted a candle (see the painting here) in remembrance of all the refugees, both at home and abroad. The inscription that reads "please remember me", and I donated the proceeds to the IRC (International Rescue Committee). But I felt like if people could hear the music, the painting would mean so much more. This is where the $5000 milestone comes in. When folks purchase certain pieces, where music was my muse, it would allow me to include a free copy of the song (only recorded professionally instead of on my phone) to communicate a little better what I was feeling, and to give folks another layer to relate to, another layer to bond with, another tool to shine light on new perspectives.
