About

I chose the word EMERGE for 2020 . . . and the universe laughed. First a sprained hand, then an old shoulder injury flared up, then a pandemic . . . still, I am determined to EMERGE in some fashion.

I'm going to be doing a LOT of new work, trying things out, working with ideas that have been percolating for ages, always set aside to work on the current lucrative project.  Since it's clearly going to be some time before I'm getting pieces into new galleries, participating in group shows or doing new workshops, the time has come to give those long-germinating ideas room to put down strong roots and grow.

I hope you'll enjoy watching them sprout and blossom.

The experiment posts will be Patrons only, so if you are not yet signed up, take a moment to do so. You can get in on the fun for as little as ONE dollar/euro/pound per month. It may not even feel worth doing from your side of the frame, but from my side if 50 people join me, even at that small contribution, it will keep me in art supplies. and chocolate!

If you feel like you can contribute a bit more, there are many bonuses and surprises, including small original works of art. Take a minute to check out the Patron Tiers and be part of something creative!



Goals
5 of 50 patrons
A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. You've heard/read it a thousand times. More people seeing my artwork begins for me with a single pledge from YOU.  It can be $1 (less than a cup of coffee - even in Portugal) and if enough people take that single step towards me, I will be able to create full time.  More ART! Exhibitions! Books! Colouring Books!  
Of course, if you can afford it and wish to pledge more, there are goodies to be had and projects to be created, so don't be shy :-) I'd love to hear from you, I want this to be an interactive space where you can contribute your thoughts, reactions and share my excitement.
When I get to 50 Patrons, I'll do a limited edition print, which will be a gift to all my active patrons. Join the fun, invite friends, let's create an artsplosion!!
