As a sole proprietor of a very small art business I have very little I can put out financially to support community projects. So when I see something worthwhile that will cost me very little I have to look closer.

Glen With Boys - Just Before Shipping Out

Glen With Boys – Just Before Shipping Out

The latest is that of sponsoring a veteran fresh out of the army, to participate in an event. In the past I have used his two sons as models for oil paintings.

Note: Glen was Grand Champion winner along with the Clark Crew last year at the Great Plains BBQ – BBQ for the Troops at Fort Riley, KS.

Eventually I realized other artist may be interested in sponsoring him as well. Glen served two tours in Iraq with the U.S. Army and is recently transitioning into life as a civilian. He is taking part in the “Backyard Barbeque Contest” as part of the “National Barbecue Competition” in Derby Kansas, Sept. 6-7 2013. To help cover the cost of supplies to participate we are offering sponsorships. In return, the name of your art business (and corresponding web address) will be on display at his work area during his time in the competition. The cost of your sponsorship is up to you. It can be as little as $5. To cover the entire event for him will cost approx $500
