    I’M SPEECHLESS! Backers at this level can write their own tickets… OK, how about I offer to create an original work of art, based on an historical painting, with you (or the subject of your choice) replacing the original subject in the painting? If you're wondering what that might look like, please check out my video above – and look for my homage to Johannes Vermeer’s well known & beloved painting ‘Girl with a Pearl Earring’ which I recreated with my daughter, Sadie. My piece is a photograph of her, staged in a similar costume, which I then hand painted in Photoshop. So, I am offering to recreate you or someone(s) you love into an original piece of art based on the famous painting of your choice. (Or not so famous, you decide.) I'll happily oblige, either way. I will even research and make recommendations to you on which piece I think might best suit you (or your loved one) if that's helpful. For that level of support I’ll be extremely accommodating!
    It goes without saying that you will also receive, of course, the undying gratitude of all the 5050LIGHT project artists, AND you will be honored in a "5050LIGHT project ‘Thanks you for your support! " video viewable on Youtube, with your name *IN CAPITAL LETTERS IN A MUCH LARGER FONT AT THE VERY TIPPY TOP OF THE LIST!* scrolling across the video in recognition of your extremely generous donation. Plus a sturdy laminated bookmark.
