Moon Flower Winner!

I put the names of my 8 great Patreon supporters in my favorite purple beret and drew out the winner for this painting.


I’ve contacted the winner and it will be on it’s way to its new owner tomorrow.

On the last day of the month, February 28th, I’ll be giving away this Moon Flower painting:

Moon Flower 8×10″ watercolor


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.

Thanks again to everyone who helps me through Patreon and in other ways.

Everyday, I learn the power of interdependence and how generous people can be.

Life is good.
