Be that One Person

“Never forget that you are one of a kind. Never forget that if there weren’t any need for you in all your uniqueness to be on this earth, you wouldn’t be here in the first place. And never forget, no matter how overwhelming life’s challenges and problems seem to be, that one person can make a difference in the world. In fact, it is always because of one person that all the changes that matter in the world come about. So be that one person.”
R.Buckminster Fuller (1895-1983) architect,engineer,inventor

You shouldn’t get to live in society and give nothing back. People complain about their taxes, yet they do nothing for the community. That makes me furious. – Kathleen Turner

What Sparks Your Firecracker?

You already know what sparks my passion to paint & give back to others.

Nature of People

Good Evening My Creatives,

I sent out emails introducing the Awiya Project 2: Cycle of Compassion & From Palette to Canvas: The Light of Nebraska this morning.

Here are the links to our campaigns if I don’t have your email address. If you want me to have it, send me an email to awiyalife@yahoo.com . Introduce yourself & let me know if you want to receive future introduction emails.

The Awiya Project 2: Cycle of Compassion 

From Palette to Canvas: The Light of Nebraska

It’s recommended that when running a crowd funding campaign that you make contact with someone 7 times. I honestly believe that is a bit excessive if not borderline wallet stalking. We don’t want that kind of negative energy around what we do. My perspective is that once you hear about it, via email, twitter, Facebook and you go look at the campaign site… Either it resonates with you & you want to be part of it or it’s just not your thing. That’s how authentic inspiration happens. It is my heartfelt wish that you become authentically inspired as we are with every painting we create &  donate.

So, with that said, I do hope that you take the time to at least view our crowd funding campaigns.  We do appreciate you taking the time to visit our campaigns.

Jes and I are in road trip planning mode for picture references to start painting the Palette to Canvas series. Also organizing with benefit organizers for a 9 yr old child with a rare type of cancer. A piece has already been selected &  in the next week or so will be delivered. Details will be forthcoming. Here’s a link to the benefit Facebook page.

All for Paul 

As always, Stay on the Awiya Side of Life and be present in your authentic nature

Cycle Continues to Spin

Phase 2 of The Awiya Project is up & running!

Jes & I have initiated the 2 nd crowd funding phase of The Awiya Project.

 

While the 1st campaign only generate $100 , none the less, it helped us purchase items needed to put the final touches on 2 paintings &  2 tubes of paint contributed to 1 new painting. All of which were donated. Check out our latest  video!

From Palette to Canvas: The Light of Nebraska

Jes and I are building upon the success and popularity of our Palette to Canvas: The Colors of Wahoo we did in September of 2011 and launching another in the series called “Light of Nebraska”. You can become a Contributor today by clicking on the side bar links . More to come in the next few days as we are updating all our websites and starting this new series. Stay on the Awiya Side of Life my Creatives!

D.I.G the Gems with an open heart

“It Ain’t Over: The Business 9 Women Kept A Secret For Three Decades”
http://t.co/w8GRfd3K

The Huffington Post brings us this little gem about 9 Nana’s with big hearts and yummy pound cakes. This story really inspired and refueled my dedication to continue painting & give it away mantra Jes & I started. We continue to donate painting to charity and benefits as well as initiating a another Palette to Canvas series. Like the Nana’s who scraped every penny to bake goodies, drop off baskets of hope to those in need… It’s the heart of compassion that’s larger than the self. No matter if you contribute to our campaign or mail us a tube of paint… Or not…. We will continue to paint & give others hope, inspiration & beauty… One painting at a time.

The Awiya Project~ Thank you

The last painting of the current project has been delivered!

I want to thank our donors, supporters and recipiants for participating in The Awiya Project! We were given an amazing opportunity to share our talents & abilities with others. Connect with other artists, community fundraising events & organizations and lovers of art.

 This experience has refueled our passion and drive to continue to paint and donate our art for the benefit of others.

A Heartfelt Thank you cannot express the gratitude we feel for sharing in this experience with you.
