Become a Sponsor of My Catalina Island Series!

I have been given the opportunity to paint the wildflowers and landscapes of Catalina Island not normally seen by the everyday visitor.

Most of Catalina Island is stewarded by the Catalina Island Conservancy, and public access is limited.  My gallery, Tirage Art in Pasadena has arranged transportation for me and a select group of their artists to visit little seen parts of the island to paint and photograph for future paintings, but I have to get over there and stay there at least a day or two for maximum effect.  Since we live very much hand to mouth, even this modest cost is not in my budget - I don't have the funds to do this now without your help. 

Time is also of the essence.  I received an email late yesterday telling me that the wildflowers are probably at their peak right now, so I am hoping to get over there Thursday and spend one or two nights so I can paint and photograph intensely while I am there.

What I am proposing is that you can become a sponsor of my trip for a modest cost - you can donate any amount, but if you donate at least $50, you will get a preview of any of the paintings completed from the trip and the $50 would go towards purchase of any painting of mine, or future class (if that is your preference).  All sponsors will also receive status updates as to the trip/paintings/exhibition(s) that involves Catalina Island.

You can donate any amount using the PayPal button below - you can use any credit card, debit card, etc. and do NOT have to have a PayPal account

Or you can mail a check to:

Donna Barnes-Roberts
323 Marathon Rd.
Altadena, CA 91001

If you mail a check, please call me at 626-791-0851 to let me know about it, or email me.  I haven't made any reservations yet, and can't really until I have the funds to pay for this.

Thanks so much in advance.
