New Venture, New Perspective

Six or seven years ago my “adventure” was to create a website and online business. I enjoyed it and found it a gratifying challenge. I’m now ready for a new venture.

I still want to paint and create art to share with you, but I’ve lost all enthusiasm for running a business. I felt liberated when I canceled my TPT license and paid my last State of Arizona sales tax bill,

So I will continue to make art and share it with you, but I’d like you to pay someone else.

Here’s how… This website will continue as a place to view and order my work. Although it will continue to list prices, these are suggested values for DONATIONS. I have suggested some organizations supporting the arts, arts education, environmental causes or hunger. But if you’d rather make a donation to a favorite cause of your own, please feel free.

To order, go to the “Contact” page, enter your information and in the Comment section, explain what items you want me to send and where. I will leave it to you to make your donation to whatever nonprofit you choose.

Some of my favorites/suggestions: [Click on the blue type for links to make donations to these organizations]
– Free Arts Phoeinx, AZ Transforming children’s trauma to resilience through the arts
– Northfield Fine Arts Boosters promotes the Arts in Northfield, MN K-12 public schools
– The Northfield Arts Guild If you purchase a piece of my work at the Guild Shop in Northfield, MN, you will be supporting them with 100% of the value of your purchase.
– Well Done Foundation plugging abandoned oil & gas wells
– World Central Kitchen supporting emergency food needs.
– Project Roots, Phoenix, AZ Educating communities by promoting gardening and sustainable urban living.
– Native Seed Search A seed bank and source for seeds of the people of the Greater Southwest so that these arid adapted crops may benefit all peoples and nourish a changing world.

If you have any questions about how this all works please reach out to me. I am grateful to be able to continue along with you. Thanks again for your enthusiasm and delight in my work.
