    Don't give up on me! I've got square paintings all over my studio! It is like pulling teeth to drag me to writing, sharing images, etc. when I'm in studio mode.

    WOW! I'm reminded how fast time flies when you are making your heart sing by doing something that you love. Since the close of the campaign…thanks to everyone who made it possible…I have been back at my easel. Managing the campaign took me away for 2 months, and with me it is either/or. Social chat or painting!

    I've got about 60 of the variations now, and have added encaustic to my repertoire. Still working in the small format, mostly! I'll do a blog post soon with more pics!

    Thank you to all my supporters that made this campaign successful! Now, to the studio to complete the remainder of the explorations. I will not be able to frame all 100 and exhibit them together, so they will be offered for sale with or without frames. Stay tuned, and be sure to follow the blog link: http://axully.com/repetition-with-variations

    WE FUNDED! I say WE because it took a veritable village to pull this off. Friends disappeared, new ones appeared...and Wicki is happy! There has been a 30 day extension granted to my campaign, for which I am grateful (and already had some donations.

    To anyone 'out there' who is considering a crowdfunding campaign, I will share my experience. Suffice it to say here that Hatchfund under-promised and OVER-delivered!

    xxoo

    Trying meme's for some fun. www.imgur.com is highly rated. I did my type in photoshop, then uploaded to them...and my buffer.com site.

    Have been active on Linkedin and Google+ crowd funding groups for the past few days. Today I started using Buffer.com to manage multiple posts. Also having trouble with Facebook filtering my posts with links, as well as filtering messages into 'other' folder that is somewhat hidden. Be aware!

    Ended 2013 with 72% of goal...started Jan 1, 2014 with my campaign featured in the Hatchfund newsletter! Thank you HF. You and Erin have made this process much easier for me!
    #1 in the series is posted...be sure to subscribe to my Over and Over Again Blog for full commentary on this process! http://axully.com/repetition-with-variations/

    Of course, I stretch the limits of any website service I use. Hazard of being a web designer for years. When Kippy and I did our book project "Mélanger aver Amour" I, of course, pushed the limits of their platform. Don't think they'd ever had anyone do a full-color book. I spent hours training Lulu's tech support team.

    So, Hatchfund's tech people are working to figure out why my images don't shown in my blog posts. In the meantime, visit the real blog at: http://axully.com/repetition-with-variations

    Oh, I forgot! I claimed all of my matching funds account! Hatchfund Rocks,
  • Posted December 29, 2013
    Gosh! I reached 53% in just TEN days! thanks to each of you...especially my $1 donor who doesn't know me from a can of applesauce, and my never met in person facebook friend from Malaysia! Can't wait to see where this journey leads. Please share with your friends...and fellow artists. I get to invite five artists to join Hatchfund when my successful campaign ends!

    Thank you to everyone so far who have donated to my project, Over and Over Again! Together we reached 49% of my minimum in my FIRST week! Apparently I'm trending very high with Hatchfund's analytics of past projects.

    Never thought my project would generate the interest it has...especially launching a few days before Christmas! thank you to Linda Wan, Melissa deBin Parish, Dianne DeMille, Jaquita and Mark Neil, Diana Moses Botkin, Susan Goromboly, Leslie B. DeMille and Shaktima Brien. One Week...41% of minimum! THANKS! And still six days left on the dollar for dollar matching funds. Thank you too, Hatchfund!

Over and Over Again begins with the same size painting and compositional shapes; different medium and techniques.
