"These new little paintings are up for grabs... They're all 8x10 inches. No price tag, just make me an offer; the highest bidder after one week wins. The money will go towards funding my live band's future dates (sound men, crew and vans unfortunately do not come for free!). The paintings should be dry in time for The Wonder Stuff tour in December, so collection at gigs is the general plan.This is the most dignified way I can think of for raising funds for my live band's future dates. The music industry is a bit screwed, but by funding art through art, this seems like a decent way to go about getting things done."
End result? serious money in the kitty towards the next EN band tour. Of course, it helps if you can paint as well as play, and you have a devoted fanbase. She does and has.
