New Campaign is almost ready.

I'm about 85% done on the new Indie Gogo Campaign. New campaign video and better copy and more gifts. Books, Prints, and even actual artwork is available for campaign contributions. Thanks to all so far that have helped me get this film to this place.

One of the things I love about Indie Gogo is their Flexi-Funding. Which means I CAN receive all contributions for the campaign. No more of this all or nothing stuff. YEAH!

The campaign should be starting in the next few days. So be ready.

More wonderful publicity.

Just wanted to share this wonderful news for my film blog and for my film I have been working on. There's been a recent grouping of things to happen that have been making me smile greatly. One wonderful thing popped up on my Facebook page the other day, it was this wonderful website run by Brett Baker called Painters Table. I wanted to take a moment to show my gratitude toward his generosity toward my film. Take a look, and also check out the rest of his blog, there is so much amazing stuff in there. You could spend a whole day just checking the site out.

Ruth Ann Fredenthal speaking on classical and dramatic painting.

My interview with Ruth Ann Fredenthal was very eye opening with her thoughts on coming up in the art world and her own education on painting. Her thoughts on being a painter are quite fascinating.

I'll let you make up your own mind by introducing this clip.

Thanks to all who helped contribute to the film to allow me my last trip for filming. The next round of campaign contributions is upon us. So please do help in any way you can. You can click any of the donation buttons to the right of this page to show your support.
