Sometime just before midnight last night my Kickstarter project officially became a success when a new "backer" pushed it over the $5000.00 mark, which I had set as my goal!
There are still 6 days to make pledges before the project is "retired" from Kickstarter. I will continue to promote it in the hopes of getting more backers. I am leaving for Buenos Aires on Monday the 17th, for ONE MONTH, and have already incurred well over $4,000.00 in expenses for airfare, advance payment on lodging, art supplies, etc. etc. .reasonably speaking the trip will probably cost me between 6 and 7 thousand dollars.
I expect to hit the ground running and start painting and drawing on the first day!
Once again thank you for your support!
