Since you've made it here to Patreon, I better make this good.  I've been thinking about participating in Patreon for quite some time.  I love art.  I paint every day. I love teaching people what I have learned.  I became interested in painting about five years ago, and have spent hundreds of hours watching videos and taking online classes.  I've built a following on YouTube thru my Monday morning video series (Creative Heart Monday).  I also do various videos throughout the week.  I am a member of the Gel Press Creative Design Team and the Canvas Corp Brands Creative Crew.  I use just about every supply under the sun....but, don't worry...we will work with supplies that most people have and I'll let you know, in advance, what you will need and what you can use for substitutions.  Like everything we do, we improve as we grow, so I anticipate that this page may change (for the better) throughout our journey due to your thoughts and suggestions.  We will do many different projects together....from abstract paintings, faces, florals.....to 3D art, like beautiful boxes.  I'm sure that we will change it up as we grow.

My videos on YouTube are high speed.  The projects that we do here will be in real time and I will explain EVERYTHING!  As I mentioned, I've taken lots and lots of classes from fantastic artists....but you know how it is when someone says "do this" and they do it really fast...then you do it and it's just not the same.  I won't leave you hanging, I will "show and tell" everything (hopefully, without boring you to death).

My Personal Life

I'm 56.  I've been married for 27 years.  I have one, little, yorkie/maltese and 2 chickens.  We live in the country, but close to town (if that makes sense).  I managed and sold residential and commercial real estate for 25 years.  When the economy took a dive, I retired.  That's when I started painting.  I have a quirky sense of humor and if you decide to become a patron, you'll experience that.  Politically, I'm progressive.  I consider myself a spiritual person. Don't worry, I'm not going to get into politics or religion here.....live and let live.  I have one sister. We are very close. My parents live about 45 minutes away...which is the perfect distance (close enough for me to get there fast in an emergency, but far enough for them not to be in my business). LOL I love them very much.  

Why Should You Become a Patron?

You will learn lots of, mixed media, techniques and create beautiful pieces with them.  I will be very attentive and when you ask a question, I respond quickly.  We can have a wonderful time here because I am very open to suggestions.  If someone has a special request, I will do everything in my power to accommodate.  I'm not the best artist in the world (or even on Patreon), but I really want to teach what I have learned, build a community, and make other people excited about art.  When we finish our projects each month, I want you to be astounded by your talent!

It's hard to ask people for money and, trust me, if I didn't need it, I'd spend every, waking, hour putting projects on YouTube for free because I love it.  But, as we all know, life is expensive.  Even though my husband and I live a very simple life, as you get older, careers end and income dwindles.  I love my art and I love sharing it.  I will always put free videos on YouTube, but I would love it, if I could really teach people how to express themselves thru art. So, this is how I'm going to try to do that.  I would appreciate your patronage.

Here's an example of my art in a, super speedy, video.

PEACE!

Goals
$9 of $1,000 per month
My Goals

1.  Purchase tent and materials to make my own, attractive, display so that I can participate in art shows/fairs.  

2.  New camera - I, currently, use my Iphone, which has a cracked screen. When I dropped it, along with the screen cracking, the camera on the back was damaged.  I use the camera on the front to film videos, but I have a difficult time taking, nice, crisp, photos of my finished art.  I think that my videos would also be better for you to watch.

3.  Better lighting - I would like to invest in professional lighting to make my videos a better experience for the viewers.

4.  New printer - I would like to, eventually, have a nice Epson printer, so that I can make my own, high quality, prints.  Presently, I go to the printer's for my prints, which is not very cost effective.

5.  Canvases - As you might have seen in my videos, I use many "used" canvases that I purchase at Goodwill, etc.  I love making something new out of something old, but.......my goal is to sell at art shows and I wouldn't feel comfortable selling art on used canvases.  I would love to be able to purchase some large canvases and create some huge pieces of art.  Without a doubt, I would video the process!!

Bottom Line - My dream is to travel around my state and do art shows a couple times a month.  I want to teach mixed media art online and in stores.  I never want to give up creating videos for my YouTube subscribers.  I have been working towards these goals and have made headway over the past year. However, sometimes a person has to admit, no matter how hard, that they need a little help.  To continue to do what I'm doing and add to my sharing with others, a little help could make all the difference in the world and I would be so grateful to everyone who helps to make my dream come true. (and I want to add that if you are reading this and are not able to become a patron, just knowing that you watch and enjoy my videos means so much to me)

PEACE!
