Every Little Bit Helps

Starting in January, I’m going to do a give-away every other month of my art and crafts to show appreciation for those who have been generous enough to support me on Patreon. If you pledge as little as a dollar a month, you’ll be eligible for these give-aways. You’ll also get exclusive content about process as well as stories and essays before they appear on my blog. I’ve been so honored that so many of you have supported my art.  It helps me survive when the world seems too challenging.

For years now, I’ve written blog posts to help people find ways to be creative.  I share what I create freely but living on disability and navigating the constraints of the new administration has been difficult.  Co-payments are going up and fewer doctors are taking Medicaid and Medicare.  I don’t think it’s going to get any better in the next few years.  But art and friends make it easier.

008I still have to pay for internet, supplies, and equipment to copy and share this work.  Your little pledges will help create a safety net for me so I can keep freely making and sharing my art. This original painting, Bougainvillea in the Rain, on paper will be my first give-away in January.

While there, take some time to look at other artists and creatives who are making the world a better place by creating thoughtful and beautiful art.

Thanks for taking the time to read and support my blog.
