News for Patrons

HAPPY SPRING! 

Ready for some changes...

  This week is mostly about getting ready for the Opening Reception of SWAN Days Allegany County NY  in support of local women artists. 

[Patrons like you make it possible to do affordable art events like this. Your rewards are being posted this week, too so that you don't forget how much I appreciate you!

I didn't have much time to celebrate and observe the Vernal Equinox arriving under the "ingress of  Aries". {Don't get the idea I know what that actually means. I just came across those additional details  when I was doing a quick search for some simple ways to observe the Vernal Equinox.}   Late in the evening I decided to listen to a little meditation from the muses and do a coloring page doodle. I like the way it looks as an inverted image. 


NEW STUFF FOR PATRONS on the Way in May ...

As I mentioned in a prior message, the current subscription levels and rewards for patrons have been in effect for almost TWELVE MONTHS. It will officially be twelve months in April 2017. I am feeling the pull to do some new work and offer new rewards that reflect that shift.  You will still have ongoing access to the existing content in the activity feed. That won't change.  Everything that has been posted so far will stay there! 

Patrons subscribed at the $1 level will continue to receive  access to the Patrons First Activity Feed where I post bloggy updates and ideas about works in progress.  In May, Thanks to some new developments on the patreon programming capabilities; I will also begin adding opportunities for all patrons to vote and offer input about events, contests, destinations, shows, tutorials (to offer them or not? about what topics?) and works in progress as they happen. 

Patrons subscribed at the $3 level will receive ONE more Monthly Coloring Page post in the activity feed in April 2017. It will come with details about a New Direction in my Creative Practice at the studio and full details about Future Rewards to be posted for you in May. I am not certain about the content of that yet but, I am leaning toward introducing a monthly coloring and/or short story contest using the coloring page that I provide. [A selected winner will then be shared on my social media platforms with credit to the participating patron noted with the entry.]  Patrons who have a preference about that offering, please be sure to comment or send me a message and I will do my best to accommodate your request!  

 Patrons subscribed at the $5 level will receive ONE more wild pantry sketch post in the activity feed in April 2017. It will come with details about a New Direction in my Creative Practice at the studio and full details about Future Rewards to be posted for you at this level in May. 

I am beginning  a new creative wellness journey (next week)! I am jumping head first into travel writing and photography in a way that will expand my existing photography collection.  In May 2017, watch for the new "Travelers" subscription level (price TBD) that will include exclusive previews for patrons to receive FOUR of my original photostock images as well as, exclusive access to articles and videos from these new wilder wellness adventures.  

 Patrons subscribed at the $10 level will continue to receive exclusive previews and discounts on products and services from the studio every month in the activity feed. You should have already received the 2016 PYO Notecard Ten Pack pdf  for your personal use. In May, I will be adding an updated collection of something new just for you! This collection is in progress. Be sure to comment or message me if you see artwork in my portfolio  or shop   that you would like to have included in the new set. 

Patrons Subscribed at $15 and Up watch for your usual rewards in April with notifications of new additions and changes that will be sent or posted for you in May. 

Thanks so much for your continued support!
