Art Patronage Wanted -- UPDATE

Open Studio is rapidly approaching, and I have made some excellent progress toward being ready for it. I'm getting the last of my prints done in the next few days, finishing up paintings, etc. Thanks to your generous contributions, I have been able to check off almost everything on my list of Stuff To Do!

I do, however, have a few more additional expenses -- the biggest of which will probably be the car rental I need for Open Studio Weekend (Nov. 12-13). I will need the transportation from Friday afternoon/evening through Sunday night, not only to get myself there, but to bring all of my art along with me.

Any contributions that you can make for this fund would be really, deeply appreciated! I hope you can all come to the event as well, I would love to see you there! The opening reception for Open Studio is on Thursday, Nov. 3rd from 6-8 pm, and Open Studio Weekend is Nov. 12 & 13, from 11 am to 5 pm. The event is FREE and open to the public. Please check out this link for all of the event details!
