You can support my passion with even just $1 a month. I appreciate any kind of support that you may have, and I hope you know how much it means to me to have you on this journey! You'll have access to all my Patreon Lens posts as well as any bonus content I upload throughout the month!
Patrons joining this tier will receive a digital file each month of a high quality scan of one of my original watercolors. These watercolor paintings are from my collection, spanning ten years of near constant creating. The digital image will be available to you to print if you'd like!
This tier also has access to all previous tiered rewards!
We are living in a world where artists who look like me receive opportunities that others don't. I am using my platform and my space to say that Black Lives Matter, that I commit to being anti-racist, and that from now on, 20% of all my income generated by my artwork, including my monthly Patreon pledges, to various Black Lives Matter causes.
I also want to begin a conversation about my work in a collective way, online. Patreon has already been a platform where I have found support for my passion. The kind of support that I get here enables me to put forth the time to continue creating, as well as the effort to share it with you, too. Nothing is more exciting to me than having a conversation about artwork, and I love to hear what you think about mine. I want to feel like I'm not just creating on my own. I want you to be there, too.
What can you expect from becoming a Patron of mine? I want to reflect on these old artworks I've discovered and talk about my technique and how my style has changed. I plan to have a blog available to all Patrons where I will start this conversation. For Peony Patrons, they will have access to a digital file of my work for them to print at their leisure. I've also introduced The Poppies, who will receive a monthly print from me! I am looking forward to sharing my passion with you!
Please consider joining me for this adventure, and start your collection of watercolors by Charlie. This one tier is just the beginning, because ideally, this is a launching pad for my much bigger endeavors. I plan to keep all my patrons informed with my upcoming projects, which includes an illustrated book, a poetry series, and local art shows.
Thank you for your time, and most of all, for supporting my passion.
