happy ghost

clap along if you feel like bones without a skin...

Although the big paintings are under internet embargo, I am happy to arrange a private showing for anyone Auckland based who’d like to see them before deciding to pledge…

In the meantime, I’m going to start posting some images of the rewards on offer, starting with this happy fellow:  “Happy Ghost” 2014, Ink & Acrylic on board, 8.5″ x 12″  ($50 pledge reward)

announcing my pledge me project

I am just about ready to have my next exhibition, and I’m very excited about how the work is going, but I am struggling to make room in my budget for the expenses involved in finishing these paintings and staging this event.

which is hopefully where you come in.

once upon a time I would have had to seek out a wealthy billionaire to support my art-making-habit but now with the modern inter-web-netz your donation/investment can help me to make this happen and you to own some of my art for your very own toilet wall/fridge door.

the fantastic people at pledge me are helping me to crowd-fund my way to my next show and I appreciate anything you can give to help make it happen.

please click through to http://www.pledgeme.co.nz/projects/2185 to take a look and consider the many options.

here’s a sneak peak of one of the works that has been finished (this one is already [sold])

my camera doesn’t do it justice, as these works need to be seen in the flesh.  and hopefully they can be soon.

I thank you for supporting my art-making…
