14-day Kickstarter project ends March 7 at 11:59PM CST.
Pre-order hand signed, limited edition prints from my upcoming 100 Paintings 100 Days series! This is an exclusive pre-release opportunity to reward those of you who help get this print project off the ground.
By backing this project with your pre-order, you will enable me to offer quality prints at affordable prices so that more people can participate in the 2012 series. Without your support, this print series might not be possible.
As a special thank you, all Kickstarter orders will include FREE SHIPPING within the U.S. International orders over $250 will include free shipping too.
I am a painter absolutely in love with color and paint. My paintings have appeared in movies and TV shows and in publications such as The New York Times and New American Paintings.
ABOUT 100 PAINTINGS 100 DAYS:
In 2007, I created a series of small (6x6") oil paintings called 100 Paintings 100 Days. People from around the world followed the 100-day release, and it generated media attention, including at Apartment Therapy. Within a very short time, the series nearly sold out (only five remain). You can see examples from this series in the above video and at 100Paintings100Days.com.
Now, in 2012, I am preparing to launch my second 100 Paintings 100 Days series. As excited as I am to share these paintings with you, I can't just yet... These paintings are a 100-day surprise for the people who follow the release this spring (subscribe here).
Here is a preview of a painting from the 2012 series:
And here is a close-up of its surface:
As you can see, the surfaces of my paintings have a lot of texture. With high resolution professional photography and top-notch fine art printing, I am confident that these small paintings will translate beautifully into limited edition prints. I am excited to offer affordable print alternatives for my upcoming 100 Paintings 100 Days series, but I cannot do it alone...
WHY YOUR PRE-ORDER MATTERS:
This print series has significant up-front costs for:
- professional high resolution photography
- color matching the photos to the 100 original paintings
- producing a small inventory of prints for each of the 100 paintings.
Costs add up quickly when multiplied by 100. By selling prints in advance of the 100-day launch, we can raise enough funds to make this print series possible.
If you like this project, but are unable to back it by pre-ordering prints, please help spread the word. The more people who learn of this project, the greater its chance of success.
HOW KICKSTARTER WORKS:
If your backing helps me reach my goal of $8500, then my Kickstarter project will be funded, you will be charged and I will work on creating your "reward" so that it can ideally ship at the end of April (see the reward options on the right). YAY!
If your backing helps me exceed my goal, then DOUBLE YAY!
If this project does notreceive enough backing to meet or surpass my goal, then the project will not be funded, you will not be charged and there will be no rewards! BOO! (If this happens, see "updates" above and www.100Paintings100Days for more information.)
PRE-ORDERING PRINTS YOU HAVEN'T SEEN:
This project provides you the opportunity to pre-order prints before you've seen the 100 paintings. I find this to be part of the fun of ordering pre-release. It is also part of the excitement of backing a project before it exists. In this scenario, you will have an opportunity to specify your preferred print color(s), and I will select the print(s) for you. Surprise!
If you don't like surprises, then I can hold off on fulfilling your reward until after I've completely released the 2012 series of 100 Painting 100 Days. In this scenario, you would be able to pick out your prints as they become available, and I would ship them to you in September.
All prints will be shipped unframed. Each will be printed in small limited editions. When these editions are gone, they will not be reprinted.
Each set of notecardPAINTINGS will contain 7 notecards and envelopes. The interior of each card will be blank, and the front will feature a hand-mounted photo of a 100x100 painting. Here's what a set will probably look like:
