Don’t Short Change the Muse II

My friend Jen Smith created this drawing based on a poem I wrote awhile back. I am setting up another fundraiser in order to help me pay for my tuition. This will be the second variety show that I put up. I really have no idea what I am doing and I am just lucky that I happen to know some very talented performers.

Jen is drawing three pieces to go with the poem to sell at our silent auction, and  I have two other painters doing their own pieces. One piece that I haven’t seen yet is being done based on another of my poems. There will also be a short film, cello music, storytelling to music, burlesque, opera and an acting performance, and a reading. It is a great way to bring people together see some great art and to raise money, but all this money-raising has actually taken away from my schooling. I never have the time or the energy to do any of my work. Shit, I guess that is the way it goes.

The show is on the 14th of November so it is coming up soon. Hopefully I will raise enough to pay off my tuition, but that is a long shot since I need 1,200.00 dollars. It will feel so good to know I paid for this through art versus taking out a loan. Paid in full by my own hard work and the help of artists. How amazing is that?
