This week’s blog is a progress update on Artists, their artwork and fundraising. It’s been a pretty exciting month with strangers knocking me off my feet with their generosity; some are willingly donating their work, others their time to support A Path To Follow. I thank them and I thank the loyal barrackers who have loaned their regular support of A Path To Follow from the start.
Huge thank you to Nichole Maybury from Maybury Ink. Nichole has willingly donated her time and services from the very conception of A Path To Follow; a communications strategy, no problem. A general promotional flyer, no problem. A bookmark, no problem. Without Nichole, A Path To Follow would not be. (FULLSTOP) Thanks N xxxx
A huge thank you to my sister, Michelle and her husband, Robert, for becoming A Path To Follow’s first (and only) official Sponsor. Because of that money I have been able to pay for some printing of marketing material and frame one artist’s painting. If anyone knows of any other potential sponsor, please send them my way. The amount can be as small as you like and be an in kind donation of services, etc.
Extremely excited to welcome Sam Michelle to A Path To Follow’s Artists. Sam is New Zealand born, but has lived in Australia for 12 years now and is local artist from Berwick, who paints wonderful images of women in the most beautiful oil colour shades. Amazing. One of Sam’s paintings will definitely adorn my new retreat area.
Amy Wallis, another art contributor, has sent me some pictorial progress that I am very excited to share. Amy is “going to join together” the accompanying images” to make a thin long (portrait direction) hanging piece” as part of her art direction. I just love Amy’s work and you might just find a bidding war with me for her work at the exhibition. Take a sneak peek at Amy’s Seven Coloured Days in progress.
Miranda of McDrawn is a designer by day and an escaper of design projects at night. She does amazing sketches of the world around her and has agreed to assist with some sketches around mental health promotion and A Path To Follow. You should really check out her work, I am sure you will get as much pleasure out of it, as I do.
So far, we are at $1,355 thanks to the Samson and Delilah Clothing sale, the Auskick and Facebook sales and individual generosity of individuals and families.
I will also be hosting another book sale at Monash Health on September 25th. Any helpers on the day would be warmly welcomed.
