Why Paint 100 Blue Face Paintings & Give them Away?

Hi there. I'm Anna aka Bunny Glue. I'm an artist based in Vancouver, BC, Canada.

Back in February I painted a blue face in acrylic on canvas. And then another. And just one more. Then I said to a friend, "I'm going to paint one hundred of these." She shrugged and said, "You're crazy." And so I painted until I dreamed blue faces. And it was amazing. 

By June 25th I had finished painting one hundred. Now I have 100 paintings that need homes. Couches to live over. Other people to admire them. And I need money to buy more paint and canvas.

They need homes.

So here's what I decided to do:

1. Give away 50 Paintings.

2. Swap 20 paintings for Karma.

3. Make a little pocket change (aka paint & canvas money) from choice.

It's not as complicated as it sounds. 

Shipping to US/Canada included in basic shipping pricing. I'm happy to ship internationally, just contact me and I can figure out any additional cost based on your location.

All of the money raised will go to art supplies, developing art projects and studio costs. My funding goal of $600 covers the cost of canvas for the project which is about one quarter of the total project cost when you factor in the other supplies (paint, brushes, glassine, protective foam etc) and shipping for the art that is involved. 

What are the paintings like? You can see the paintings and pick out your favorite here: http://www.bunnyglue.com/blue.html Each painting is a 12 inch square one inch thick canvas suitable for easy immediate hanging. The paintings are in acrylic and most of the paint used is Kroma artist grade (some of the early paintings were student grade paint) and all of the paint used is light fast. Each painting depicts a blue face.

The sooner you back the project, the more likely you are to get the painting of your choice! Preferences will be prioritized based first on reward level and second based on when you backed the project.

Other ways to help? • Let your friends know about this project. • Like me on Facebook. •  Follow me on Twitter. Thank you.

Risks and challenges

The paintings are completed so that isn't a risk. (This project will clear my art debts and let me buy supplies to create my next project.)

Risks include damage/alterations to paintings while displayed for publicity or during shipping. If paintings are damaged during publicity shows I will retouch them. I am doing my best to make sure the paintings will be protected during shipping (glassine, water resistant wrapping and foam board) but damage might occur.
