This whole process has been so interesting as well as very emotional. I don't want to be overbearing in promoting the project yet at the same time I know I need to keep posting and publicizing it because we all have short memories and have lots other distractions in December. I worry a lot, afraid that I won't reach my goal in time. That would cut out a lot of exhibition ideas, framing for the portraits, stop the art catalog, change the quality of the canvas, and I don't want to have to do that. And I worry whether my portraits really do justice to my subjects, catching the personality and attitude that I see there.
I just got a set of new business cards that promote the Project on the back side, and I'll be handing these out to everyone, and putting them in coffeeshops. They came out pretty well!
Remember, the $250 reward is a 9x12 oil portrait of you, of a friend, of a pet - could be an inspired Holiday gift!
