Art With A Message
I had only recently begun haphazardly navigating the realm of guest blogging, when Jacob Devaney had asked me if I had wanted to make a painting for Water. This occurred around early March and the campaign for World Water Day on March 22nd.
It sparked a line of inspiration in me. Having read Vajra's article about his painting, "Man in the Middle" and the vision of using artworks for environmentally positive action through partnering with groups for humanitarian and philanthropic purposes, all I could feel was a big "YES" light up inside me.
Long story short, I wrote an article for Jacob & CultureCollective.Org. I positioned my work, "Water Is Life" for donation to Water.Org or The SolutionsProject.Org. I think I sold maybe $100 dollars, just using my etsy site. As small as that is, it felt like a huge triumph - A large puzzle piece in personal identity & dream-life integration had seemed to have found Its resting place.
It was a great first attempt at combining my love of art with my desire to steward positive change in the world.
