I'm honored to have been invited to ArtPrize 2013! My painting will be displayed at the DeVos Place Convention Center.
I wanted to do something epic for this competition, so I'm painting a 8' tall by 20' wide painting of a vintage steam locomotive train entitled "The Standoff". The underlying narrative is how we as mankind overcome our challenges. I wanted to add in a little of my own humor to portray that. If art isn’t making you think its not living up to its full potential.
Please support my project! I'm grateful for any donation amount and have set up some awesome rewards for contributors.
Fund raised will go towards:
Belgian Linen Canvas - $2100
Custom Stretcher Bars - $1200
Paint & Supplies - $450
Marketing Materials - $1800
Transportation to/from Michigan - $1500
Lodging & Food - $1000 for 3 weeks
Installation - $300
Risks and challenges
Transporting the piece safely will be the biggest challenge. I'll be travelling 1500 miles across country with the painting in a trailer. Installing a piece in a new location is always risky. I've transported hundreds of paintings successfully in the past and if something unfortunate happens to the painting (like a scratch) I can fix it on location.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
