Regrouping in Order to do this Better!

colorful cat face painting

I love to paint!  I love my rescue animals.  And I have discovered I love painting animals to help rescues!  I also know you love your rescue animals!  You feel passionate about saving animals.  And I also am pleased and honored to know you have enjoyed my artwork of the dogs, cats and horses!   I see a need for this kind of thing to grow and continue.

After several months of selling art on eBay and a few other outlets Save A Face was able to raise over $1,150.00 for various animal related rescues and therapies.  I realized that in order to do this right I really need to run it not as a hobby but as a business so it can sustain itself.  That way I can continue to paint what I like to paint.  People can enjoy collecting the art, the rescues can get some much needed money and this whole thing can keep moving forward.

So what I am doing is regrouping.  I am in the midst of streamlining some things in order to be more efficient and I am organizing this worthy endeavor in such a way that it can be self sustaining and have a greater reach.  So I am asking for you to bare with me while I do some nuts and bolts work behind the scenes.  My hope is to have this better situated with a well put together web site not long after the first of the year.

In the meantime I have put some artwork up on Etsy at http://www.etsy.com/shop/ArtbySue.  The fees are less and the price is set, unlike on eBay but this is original art- one of a kind stuff here and 20% will go to the rescue of your choice.

I am excited to show you what I have in store for you but for now I need to just get it all in place.

    Sue – sounds like a smart plan. If I can help in anyway, let me know. One of the first operating rules that I put in place with the non-profit was the professionals had to be paid for the work that they do. If you can’t pay “the talent” you can’t keep a business afloat. I applaud you for recognizing that you need to be able to have this work be sustainable.

      Glenda, thank you! I appreciate your insight. I love how this project intersects so many of my interests and adds a deeper purpose to my work so I want it to continue.
