I am having two give-aways of original art in February for people who support me on Patreon.
Both are watercolor paintings on Arches cotton paper, painted with Daniel Smith watercolors and ink, and are interpretations of moon flowers — one of my favorite flowers. They bloom as summer is coming to end, opening as the sun sets, only living for one evening.
The first give-away will be on 4th (in time to get this for a Valentine’s Day gift for a loved one.) This is a watercolor study for a larger painting. An intuitive painting, honoring the influence of the moon on all living things. The moon so much more subtle and easier to look at than the sun.
I’ll draw a winner from the names of people (from my purple hat) who support me on Patreon — anyone who supports me for a dollar a month or more.
Patreon is a micro-donation platform that allows people who support my art to give a little bit each month to help me buy art supplies, pay living expenses, and have a little security. Even a little bit helps me so much. The monthly donation is automatically taken from your credit card each month.
It’s gotten increasingly hard in the past year to manage medical co-pays. Budget cuts in Medicaid have taken effect, and the political world is so screwy that I don’t know from one month to the next if I’m going to have coverage at all. Patreon is like an island of security in an insecure ocean that gets a little more wishy-washy each month. As a person with a long term degenerative disability (HSP), the support I get from patrons is a life-line.
The second give-away will be on February 28th. It’s moon flowers as they grew in a tangle on my porch this last August.
As a supporter of my art, you’ll be part of regular give-aways and always be notified when I’ve posted new paintings and blog posts.
You can read more about it and pledge here.
Thanks to those who already support me. And I appreciate those of you who can’t make donations but support me through reading the blog, liking my work, and sharing it. I feel fortunate to be a small part of your life.
