Share a meditative painting experience with others. United by patterns in Nature on squares. In the tradition of an old time Quilting B on Sunday. A collaborative effort to create a MOMA Museum exhibit. A place of self. "ultimately creating their own auto biography's." -Mariam Shapiro. This allows us to comfortably participate in a culture that is larger than ourselves.
A COLLABORATIVE PAINTING
FYI, it was this utube video that sold me on the nonprofit business model:

From our girlfriend Dianne (May you rest in peace).
"M.S. (Multiple Sclerosis) is the best thing that ever happened to me. It made me humble and vulnerable, and gave me a sense that I needed the Lord."
"Instead of asking God to comfort me, it is better to ask God to conform me, to make me more like Christ. Instead of asking, 'Why me?' ask 'What do you want me to learn?', then trust God, and keep doing what is right. Don't give up, grow up."

I am going to use this website as a blog spot for a bit because i am waiting for a fancy web designer to hop on board! We have received confirmation from Dick Blick that for every order made through this website 10% commission is earned. We, Cozette, and I are planning to put that 10% in the Non Profit start up bank account. I would like to request the same from Spoonflower eventually. If you would like to be on the Non Profit Board of Director's please let me know. email@example.com. It would be nice to find someone interested in Creating Bylaws for our Non Profit. I am still working on the "Mission Statement" if anyone has any ideas.
FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT JUST GOT ON BOARD!
YOU MAY HAVE HEARD OF US AT THE EL QUARTELEJO MUSEUM IN SCOTT CITY KANSAS. COZETTE AND I ARE DISPLAYING A BEGINNER PORTION OF THE GIRLFRIEND SUNFLOWER QUILT. WE HAVE TWO SAMPLE PACKETS THAT REFLECT THE BELOW PAINTING STARTER KIT PACKAGES WISHLIST ON DICK BLICK. (STILL WORKING ON THE 10% ATTACHMENT, HAVE AROUND 10 EMAILS FORM DICK BLICK THAT NEED TO BE EXECUTED. THANK YOU FOR YOUR RESPONSE DICK BLICK, WE LOVE YOU GUYS!) COST FOR THE PACKAGE IS $25. OUR GOAL AT GIRLFRIEND SUNFLOWER QUILT IS TO CHARGE $50 FOR THE STARTER KITS SO THAT ONE KIT COULD BE OFFERED AS DONATION TO ASSIST OTHER PROGRAMS.
ANDREA, I REALIZE THAT I COULD SEND YOU CANVAS AND PAINT (HAVE NOT PRICED SHIPPING TO AFRICA...) BUT HOW WOULD WE ORGANIZE DISTRIBUTION AND PHOTOGRAPH RETURNS. WHILE I WAS IN THE KITCHEN WASHING DISHES I CONSIDERED THAT GRACE MAY BE INTERESTED IN COORDINATING THE SHIPMENT AND FINAL PHOTOGRAPHS IF WE WERE ABLE TO PAY HER FOR THE HOURS SHE SPENT ASSISTING. I STILL THINK THAT PATREON IS THE NEXT STEP FOR THIS PROGRAM...ONE STEP AT A TIME.
FOR NOW. COZETTE, CHECK THE PHOTO BELOW AND ADD SOME STUFF, PLEASE. I AM IN AND OUT OF THE STUDIO TODAY, 11/24/2019 11:34 A.M. STOP BY IF YOU WOULD LIKE.
HI COZETTE, IT'S FRIDAY!! I WILL BE IN THE STUDIO AT 4:00 P.M. HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE. 10/04/2019.
YOU BET GIRLFRIEND‼️ LOOKING FORWARD TO IT AS ALWAYS🌻🌻
Join us! We are a couple of Grandmother artists that would like to get in the Guinness book of world records (for bragging rights of course)! We have started an oil painting in 12" x 12" square sections. We have not decided if we will continue to stretch each canvas on 12" x 12" stretcher bars with a recessed frame or, if spaced allowed, one day, sew them together..... We are open to acrylic paint for a "mixed media" painting but oils are the origin.
Mariam Shapiro and her world renowned concept of "Women's handiwork on display" is the inspiration for this theme. A good old fashioned quilting B is the atmosphere of participation.
I will contact Dickblick to set up a purchasing page for the supply package. Participants will order directly form Dick blick, paint a sunflower of their choice, photograph it and upload it to the website. The website will embeded site the "quilt block" and add images to and interactive block arranger (powerpoint to start). Participants will be able to arrange the quilt in their choice of pattern, print to paper or cloth, and cheer the square foot process of the painting size. I know that the largest mural, in Wichita, KS is 50,000 square feet and i think that the largest oil painting 3,400 square feet old Florentine painting or current 525.26 square feet sewn together in 5 x 100 pieces. We can do this!! Lets dedicate it to Shelter and Septic.
10/04/2019 I think that it might be beneficial to work on two running sites and then combine the strongest parts of each on to the final site. I think that a program called Word Press for an extremely functional website might benefit us later.
Cozette, I started a new site to remove the dashes in the URL. I am going to try next to share it with you as an editor. Note the right hand side of the screen and feel free to play with it. I am typing in a text box. Try the embed insert, and and image. Try a layout, i will do the same and we can re-arrange and change anything later. After you add or change something, PUBLISH to save the page and i will be able to see what you did.
hello Cozette, Barb here just to say hi!
trying this layout for fun. You can add your picture and message next to mine. Thanks for being my girlfriend, sunflower! This site can be viewed by the Public. I doubt that anyone would land on it without further management. For now we can play with it and later add a true url.
Hanging out in the hot rod!
