The Painted Lady Project was started to answer a simple question: Can art benefit both the artist and the community? I believe it’s possible through small actions that add up.
It works like this: PLP creates a limited run of an art object (prints, jewelery, anything!). 50% of profits from each run is donated to a specific cause, as stated in the description of that object. The rest goes to the artist.
Is it a lot? No. But it’s something. It’s a difference, no matter how small.
This is just the beginning: For now I’m the only artist. If each run is successful, we’ll pick a new cause and create a new item for sale. Eventually, we hope to make it a monthly event and open the project up to other artists. For now, take a look at our latest item and discover a new way to make good.
The above gadget will allow you to checkout with Stripe. If you really prefer Paypal, there’s also the Etsy Store.
Okay, so you really shouldn’t let opossums eat your garbage–it isn’t good for them. But these pro scavengers don’t know that, so we thought it was a fitting ode to the USA’s best (only) marsupial. Opossums are the coolest, and not just because of their low, rabies-inhibiting body temperature.
This pair of earrings is printed on super-durable black laminated acrylic, hung from surgical steel (hypoallergenic) French hooks. They are 1″ across and 1/16″ thick.
AND: 50% of the profit from the sale of each set will be donated to Piedmont Wildlife Rehab of Greensboro, North Carolina. Piedmont Wildlife Rehab works to relieve suffering in injured wildlife and raises orphaned young with the goal of releasing them back into the wild. Even the opossums.
