I have struggled, despite the ups and downs, to take my Art to another level. I got it !! I have a Gallery that wants to work with me! I just have to send the canvas...
This campaign aims to contribute to the logistics involved in sending the canvas, my Art, to the gallery in San Francisco. After years of struggling for some exposure in the competitive arts market, I have achieved my dream - a Gallery that recognizes the value of my Art and wants to work with me! Now that this first contact has been defined and elaborate contracts and conditions ... I need to get the art works up there! It's not easy, it's not cheap! So here I am, hopefully and transparently, to obtain the necessary funds for this new level of my artistic life!
But in compensation to my dear supporters, I promise to deliver a signed work and with reference to this campaign as a way of thanking! I believe in me! I believe in You! After all these years I have my opportunity! I count on you in this new step !! Thank you!
