Oh my goodness! Just 75 minutes after posting the below entry, some epicly generous soul has gifted a Premium Membership to me! If you would like to identify yourself and message me, I'd be more than happy to draw/paint/make something for you. Thanks so much! The book that inspired this social experiment for me is The Art of Asking, by Amanda Palmer
, and her amazing TED talk. I can't wait to try out all of the features! And a sneak peek into my activities next year, I'm hoping to go to Japan for hanami which means LOTS of photos which I can now batch upload! Love and kindess to you all. And thanks to everyone who watches, favourites, or views for you support!
Hey friends. Amanda Palmer says that you should not be afraid to ask your audience for support. Therefore I am timidly asking for the donation of a Premium Membership.
I have been on this site for over 10 years and have never had one. I shoot on film so I don't get to shoot and upload immediately for free. I pay for all painting supplies, travel, accommodation, film, printing, scanning and developing costs myself. I don't get paid to upload or curate my work. I do it because it's my form of expression and therapy in some ways. Having a Premium Membership will make it easier for me to upload work and engage with the site. I also want to change my username as it's from ten years ago. If I ever get a membership, I would be extremely grateful and try to reciprocate in some creative manner.
Just leaving this out in the universe.
Best wishes to all of my watchers!
