Hello, I'm Brendan, a Burlington, VT-based artist.

I'm a recovering misanthrope, aspiring biophiliac and seeker of self. I'm here on Patreon in an attempt to support and sustain one of the most satisfying and truthful expressions of me -- abstract painting. 

I'm having a hard time making sense of the world, and the place I find myself most able to maintain equilibrium is in the studio. If you'd be willing to help me cultivate and sustain the well-being that comes from my efforts there, I would be sincerely grateful.

You can find my artwork on my website: https://www.brendanbush.com

I began painting on a whim in 2015 and pretty quickly found it to be a productive outlet for things I might have a difficult time expressing in words. I feel so deeply when I'm painting and find it to be both relieving and inspiring, allowing me to let go and create simultaneously.

What I'm offering on Patreon
  • access to my creative process
  • conversation
  • accessible art
  • unadulterated gratitude
Ultimately, my goal is pursue creative expression, through painting, photography, poetry and otherwise on a full-time basis. While I'm certainly a ways off, it wouldn't take many patrons-of-the-arts, at any level you're able, to start making that dream a reality.
Rewards
A tip of the cap
$1 or more per month 0 patrons
If I knew 50 people like you, my yearly paint brush, tools and (plant-based) cleaning supply needs would be taken care of.  I'll personally send you a thank-you email and share patrons-only works-in-progress content for your monthly tip.
Color (you) curious
$3 or more per month 2 patrons
New to community-funded art patronage, but interested enough to chip in a cup of coffee per month? It wouldn't take long for me to achieve my dreams if I had the support of even a small group of folks curious enough to keep me caffeinated :)


I'd like to send you a thank you note for giving me a shot, in addition to access to works-in-progress.

Supporter
$5 or more per month 4 patrons
$5/month is a generous show of support for the art that I'm creating and the time and energy I'm spending doing so. I'd love to send you a handwritten thank you letter; occasionally invite you into my studio via a streaming video feed; and regularly share in-progress works with you.

Clearly, you have my back. Every year that you back me, claim a free print of a finished piece. Live-stream regular painting sessions from my studio, and get Patrons-only updates on works-in-progress, my painting process, etc.
Sponsor
$100 or more per month 0 of 5 patrons
For every year that you sponsor me at this level, you can have an available painting of your choosing, with access to finished pieces before I share them with the general public. Live-stream regular painting sessions from my studio. I'll hand write you a letter every month. If you live in Burlington, let's grab a beer, or hang at my studio, or catch a show! If you're from out of town, let's connect on Skype! And of course you'll get exclusive behind-the-scenes updates regularly on Patreon.
Goals
$82 of $100 per month
At $100/mo, I'll be making a considerable dent in the cost of painting supplies. I'll also feel super supported and even more energized to make this dream a reality!
