Less than 24 hours to go

There are less than 24 hours to go on my Kickstarter campaign.  I cannot express how amazing it is that so many people responded to my project.  In less than 2 months I’ll be making art in Italy for some very awesome people.  I thoroughly enjoyed my Kickstarter experience and would recommend it to anyone with a project and a plan.

Tree Illustrations

I have been working on a few small drawings of trees over the past couple of months.  I am really enjoying working in a new medium, and recently invested some time and money in a decent amount of Prismacolor markers.  I make the outline of the subject and then color it in.  So basically, I make my own coloring pages.

There are still a few days left to donate to my kickstarter project and receive original, one of a kind art for only $5.   Artist Residency in Italy at Kickstarter.   See link in previous post!

Artist Residency in Italy

I have been accepted to an artist residency in Italy this summer.  I am very excited to be going to Casaprota, Italy outside of Rome in the Sabine Hills area for the month of June.  While I am there I will hike and sketch the local flora and fauna as well as explore Italian folklore.  I will also be painting for an end of residency show.

I have created a Kickstarter project to raise money for art supplies for the trip.  Even a donation as low as $5 receives an original, one of a kind work of art.  Please consider donating today.  Just follow the link below to my Kickstarter project.


If you want to find out more about the art association Sabinarti where I will be staying for the month of June, follow this link.
