    Every bit helps! In appreciation of your donation, I’ll start by giving back. This reward is for a month (sometime within the next year) of my mentoring to any aspiring visual artist who feels that I can be of support to them. This offer will be tailored to obvious logistics, including our distance apart and scheduling needs. We will focus on your choice or blend of professional, artistic, and emotional support. Please be as generous as possible and donate at the level you can afford for this reward, but one dollar is fine, if that’s what fits your budget! For more information about this reward, click on any blue “REWARDS” link to the left!
