About this project
UNIFIED We Stand!!! The UNITED States of America
I first want to thank you for visiting my page and taking the time to show your interest in this project. This is one of those special moments in history and I hope you will take this journey with me.
So here's the back story...
Back in March of this year I was booked to perform a live painting for a fundraiser with the theme of Deep in the Heart of Texas. So in preparation for this I decided to paint a few different paintings of Texas. And if there is one thing about Texans, it's they LOVE Texas!! All of these paintings found a home very quickly. Actually one of my collectors Cheryl M. suggested that I paint all of the United States. Immediately I gravitated toward this idea and took it a few steps farther. This painting is called Texas!, it was the 1st one that I painted.
This is 2012! The Summer Olympics are around the corner and this fall we, as a nation, will be choosing who we want to lead us into the future. Our patriotism should be at a all time high! I know that when we as a nation can unify together with faith in a common goal, the possibilities are endless. Through this project I am dedicating myself for 50 consecutive working days to create something that we as Americans are proud of and that's our state and our flag.
Now this is the plan....
Starting on July 4th, 2012, I will paint the largest oil painting of the United States of America that has ever been painted. It will be named "UNIFIED We Stand!!! The UNITED States of America" It will measure 20' tall and 40' wide. The painting will consist of 50 different 4'x4' canvases, one for each state. I am painting one state a day for 50 days, starting with the first state (Delaware) to join the Union and ending with last state (Hawaii). When all 50 paintings are assembled together, they as a whole will represent the Stars and Stripes of the US flag. Taking on a project of this magnitude could be daunting for most, but I will use the same principles that our founding fathers used when forming this nation; Faith, Hard Work and a Burning Desire. I know that we can accomplish any task that we place in our minds.
This is where I need your support....
The funds that I am raising will cover all of the costs needed to pull this off. The costs will include all canvas, paints and materials needed, studio space, utilities, storage space and video/photography expenses. This will also cover all costs to fulfill rewards with shipping included.
So what do you think??? Does a UNIFIED nation sound good to you? Remember this funding program is ALL or Nothing and that is why all support is greatly appreciated!!
With Love, Tanner
