Dear Art lover,
I guess that I am the APRIL FOOL!!! My bronze sculpture Kickstarter art project ends 5 pm Texas (Central) Time Zone, NOT midnight CT. I thought that I was choosing the clock to be on US time where I was basing my project. Instead the midnight hour apparently refers to my physical location when I launched the project: Croatia!
As I write this, we have only one day left to raise the goal funds for the bronze casting foundry for my wax sculptures. Here is the Kickstarter Stat line:
$9,810 pledged of $11,500 goal
24 hours to go
Oh, we are so close… with Kickstarter.com, I only get the pledges for the foundry if enough people jump on board and together pledge to the goal amount. It is all or nothing.
We are so close and I really appreciate your interest and any participation, if so moved. I have created reward levels so that any amount you wish to contribute can help me send you some art in a variety of forms. If there is one of my artworks that you would like to own, but do not see it on Kickstarter… make a pledge and we can work out the details on switching the rewards later. Your pledge could even serve as a down-payment for a future artwork, if you prefer.

The Future is Unwritten, but we always have choices! Check a few of those out at:

Now I am ending on April Fools Day.
Probably appropriate. Lol.
Destroy to Create: Melted wax sacrificed to pour bronze sculpture. Hot art: Make it happen before these wax figures are truly lost.
Thank you so much for helping me make some bronze art a reality,

P.S. The really good news is that this is the last blog post about Kickstarter (except maybe a small part will share the final outcome with you). And then, we get back to art and Italy! Whoot!
