Before I started painting instruments, my favorite thing to paint was children. Of course, I painted my son most often and I'm sure that there are no fewer than twenty portraits of my son in a variety of sizes owned by many of my family members.
This weekend I'll have the exciting opportunity to give back to kids in the Anderson community in a big way! Anderson University has invited me to participate in the Calvary Arts Festival to benefit the Calvary Home for Children. Fifty percent of everything sold at the festival will go to Calvary Home.
The Calvary Arts Festival will be on March 23, 2019 from noon to 4pm. Look for a variety of art, craft, and food vendors on the Anderson University Campus in the side parking lot between the Sullivan and Vandiver buildings. If there is rain, the festival will move to the athletic campus.
Calvary Home provides help, hope, and home to abused and neglected children in Anderson County. They strive for every child to be nurtured in a welcoming, reliable, and Christ-centered home and be united with their family as a more physically, emotionally, and academically stable individual.
I am pleased to donate fifty percent of the sales of my work to the Calvary Home. See more about their ministry on their website. See more about the festival on the Anderson University website here: https://www.andersonuniversity.edu/events/calvary-arts-festival
Since I want to focus on creating beautiful art, I’ll let someone else handle the manufacturing, shipping, and delivery. I’ll sell templates, downloads, and of course, my original art on my own site. I’ll still work with a few trusted partners to create things like canvas art and cell phone cases to sell on my own site, but my plan is to shift a lot of the products to places like Redbubble and Zazzle so my international customers can have a better experience with my art.
