About this project

Hi everybody!

Thanx for taking the time to jump over here and check this out,

First, I'd like to thank my backers in helping me reach my goal!!!!

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!...

I was very conservative in the amount I asked for, this is a bare minumum of what I would need to pull off a small show.

Although it is true my goal was reached, you can still continue to donate and every penny will go towards getting my art out to the general public, with more and more art....most projects here exceed their intial goal, I would love to be one of them!!!

Thank you again!!!

I am planning an Art Show in Late August or early September and I need your help to get it off the ground. I seek funds to help buy supplies such as paint, brushes, canvases, make prints to sell, etc. I love creating my art because it brings me such peace and joy when I am painting and hopefully it brings others joy as well.

People that know me know me as a chef, a drummer and a writer among other things but painting is brand new to me, I am trying to find new and positive outlets for all the negative things going on in my life right now.

"There is a saying in Tibetan, 'Tragedy should be utilized as a source of strength.' No matter what sort of difficulties, how painful experience is, if we lose our hope, that's our real disaster".
-Dalai Lama

If you don't know, I've had 14 surgeries, 7 on both feet and lower back to name a few

and am physically disabled as a result but I'm determined to do what I can do to support my family. With my wife living out of country in Mongolia, fighting to adopt and save her nieces and nephews from unfit parents and give them a better life and brighter future, our finances have suffered tremendously and your support in making this Art Show a reality will help more than just myself.

So, if ya can, help me out, even a small amount will do and I will be FOREVER grateful to you for helping me take my art to the next level.

Thank you again very much,

Drew
