After 14 years of not painting due to depression and self-sabotage, I'm back on track to fulfilling my life's purpose; to help make the world a more beautiful, compassionate place through my art. I recently completed the first painting "Invictus Anima", but need to continue painting so that I can solidify these newly found positive habits and re-ignited work-ethic. Finishing 2 similar pieces of art will most certainly do that, and that's where you and your support come in. Thank you for looking :)
UPDATE - here's an image of my second painting which is currently in progress:
All paintings below were completed in 1998. The exception is "Demonatrix", which was started in 1998, then painted over and touched up in 2008 as a failed attempt to rekindle my love for art. You can probably notice the shift in my work from dark and sinister (all art below), to a more positive outlook despite life's chaos (my new painting above).
What Will The Money Go Towards?
Your support will help to cover the costs of art prints and art supplies; paints, brushes, canvasses, etc. and it will allow me to focus 100% of my time on completing the other 2 images.
Also, eventually, I'll hire someone to develop an art website. And It's my larger, long-term goal to create an online and offline community to help aspiring and struggling artists, especially critical since funding for the arts is being cut from education budgets all across the country. But that's for another day.
REWARDS & SHIPPING
All rewards have U.S. shipping already included! For international shipping, please add the additional amounts as indicated. Prints will be shipped in a protective mailer tube, while original paintings will be shipped in flat packaging. All will have tracking and signature confirmation required. The paintings are ready to ship as soon as the Kickstarter campaign is funded and completed, though the business cards, postcards and prints will take a few weeks to prepare. I'll keep backers updated!
Risks and challenges
I don't smoke, drink or do drugs. Hell, I'm a vegan and am basically 'straight edge', so none of your money is going towards any bad habits, just my best habit; which I can proudly say, once again, is painting.
I still work quite slowly, so there may be a chance that it will take me a bit longer than expected to complete the next two paintings. But my goal is to finish the next (2nd) painting within 6 weeks. I'll be starting on it soon and updating Backers via Kickstarter and Facebook.
