We have achieved 102% of the funding and things are looking good.  Officially 29 hours until the project ends, and then I will be able to set up a simple form for us to smooth out the details of your backer awards.  I wanted to thank everyone again for their support, this project means a lot to me and I can't wait to see it through!  You all are the best, I hope you are enjoying the holiday.  Talk to you all soon,

Tyrus


Update #5

Celebrate with fireworks and artwork

Comment

We have just reached 77% funding with  4.5 days left to our deadline.  If you know anybody that is interested please let them know, as the project is closer than ever to becoming a reality.  I am proud of this project and want to thank all of you even if we don't reach our goal.  I am still hopeful that we will as a few more promised backers have yet to come in and so many people have commented on backing the project if it gets closer to its goal.  I hope the next update will be a good one!

Hello Everyone!

We are now at the 15% funding level and I just wanted to follow up on the last update.  "Ghost House" magazine, which will feature an image by me in relation to this project, will be distributed in Athens on the 23rd of this month.  For those of you in the area please seek out John Stidham.  He will be providing me with a link to facebook information shortly  for those more distant. I have added a detailed breakdown of expenditures for this project on the main page, below the images of the "Eight Views of Omi."  I wanted to thank you all again and remember to check out my blog updates if you are interested as well, which may be read at http://www.tyruspaints.blogspot.com/

Best,

Tyrus
