About Paula Swenson

My brain is full of ideas jostling for attention. Getting them to calm down and allowing me to focus is the first task.

Right now I am participating in the inktober2019 challenge to create one ink drawing each day in October.  I did the challenge in 2017 and it really was beneficial.  After a year of being mostly our of touch with my studio self due to moving to POrtugal and renovating an older house, I can use a bit of a kick start!

I'm really excited about getting back to work.  I have some textile/mixed media ideas to work on, some oil pastels to play with, some fresh new canvases . . . you get the picture and I hope you'll enjoy seeing where these experiments take me.

The experiment posts will be Patrons only, so if you are not yet signed up, take a moment to do so. You can get in on the fun for as little as ONE dollar/euro/pound per month. It may not even feel worth doing from your side of the frame, but from my side if 50 people join me, even at that small contribution, it will keep me in art supplies. and chocolate!

If you feel like you can contribute a bit more, there are many bonuses and surprises, including small original works of art. Take a minute to check out the Patron Tiers on the right side of your screen and be part of something creative!



Goals
5 of 50 patrons
A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. You've heard/read it a  thousand times.  Well more people seeing my artwork begins for me with a single pledge from YOU.  It can be $1 (less than a cup of coffee - even in Greece) and if enough people take that single step towards me, I will be able to create full time.  More ART! Exhibitions! Books! Colouring Books!  
Of course, if you can afford it and wish to pledge more, there are goodies to be had and projects to be created, so don't be shy :-) I'd love to hear from you, I want this to be an interactive space where you can contribute your thoughts, reactions and share my excitement.
When I get to 50 Patrons, I'll do a limited edition print, which will be a gift to all my active patrons. Join the fun, invite friends, let's create an artsplosion!!
