23 backers pledged $684 to help bring this project to life.


4 Days into the kickstarter project and thank you so much to everyone who has already pledged!

I wanted to share with you all the first release of the build-up series, The Pursuit (study of Rembrandt Peale's Thomas Jefferson) . One of the original American Proverbs, Jefferson's words still perfectly describe American's endless fight for happiness. 

When I digitze it, it will be available exclusively to backers so far! Look forward to more in this series, and feel free to make comments for quotes/styles you would like to see done.

Thanks again to all of you! 

Get wisdom,

And in the spirit of the political season, another quote from Jefferson:

"Were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers, or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter. "
     –   Thomas Jefferson
