First ArtPrize

After many years of shrinking away from entering ArtPrize, I decided to enter this year. I was under the impression that I would have the money to frame my artwork, travel to and from Grand Rapids (3 hour drive one way, which is a struggle right now) and lodging. After I officially enteted the competition, I found out the money I was planning on was not plausible and has left me in a lurch. I have also been told that those artists who do make it to the finals were artists who were with their artwork daily for weeks for the voting public to meet. I am a father of 3 working a part time job. I can't pay my bills, let alone get my artwork framed! It's because of these reasons that I started this funding campaign. Here's a link to the entry-
