Everything is $100
As some of you already know I always surrender my birthday month of September to the Gods of travel, chance, and beauty. Letting the wind and social media curate a large portion of an unscripted journey…and give away some free paintings along the way.
The Deal: Every day on the road I’ll be posting either an original drawing, or limited edition to fund the journey. Everything is $100. First one to claim it in the comments section gets it, and I’m only allowed to travel and live on the coin raised here on Facebook.
This year to make the odds a little bit more fun, I’ll be giving away an original painting every single week.
So patrons who supported me on the road that particular week will have their names entered in a small lottery, and stand a pretty good chance to win a free original painting done by yours truly. And I’ll keep doing this until I run out of money or paintings.
Of course Patrons are always welcome to stop by Blue Rain Gallery and pick up one of my originals there. www.blueraingallery.com However the prints, drawings, and free paintings are something I only do on my birthday.
For me birthdays are not about new socks, cheap ties, and cake. Rather they are a time to reflect on the year behind me and consider the one ahead. To experience and absorb something totally new, bring it back to the studio, and see if it can find its way to the canvas.
I’ve found that nothing ignites the creative fires better than an unscripted journey.
