A Lifetime of Friends: A Painting Collaboration For Healing, A Fund Raiser Project

Iím in need of your love, support and prayers. Iím having some health issues and need time to heal. You can help me heal my body and spirit, and regain my strength by helping me create several collaborative paintings: "A Lifetime of Friends."

My plan is to create 10 paintings made out of 5Ē x 5Ē squares. They will be painted one square at a time. The paintings will be similar to the one shown but may change some because of the painting process. The finished paintings will be donated to several public buildings in Wisconsin.

A donation from you will allow me to paint these paintings and give me time to recover from illness. In turn I will create a square in your honor. Your reward is an image of the square I painted for you. For a donation of $10.00 I will send you a digital image of your square. For a donation of $25.00 I will send you a print in the mail. There are many other great rewards. For further details about the rewards see the next page.

Donations of cash or a check should be sent to my address. Please email at janegatesart@yahoo.com for that information. When sending your donation please include your address and email so that I may send your reward. We must act quickly as it will take several months to paint and I canít begin without your donations. My goal is 10 paintings or 1080 squares. It would mean so much to me if you could donate within the next month.


I have an MFA from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and have taught collage art classes in the southern Wisconsin area for years. I worked with hundreds of talented art students, and created and exhibited my own paintings nationally and internationally.

I tried a fundraiser site on GoFundMe.com but I haven't reached my goal. The site is still up if you want to contribute there. The link is: www.gofundme.com/Medical-Healing-and-More. I also started a page for my Airedale Romeo, who is also sick and is going blind, his link is at: www.gofundme.com/AiredaleRomeoCareAlert.

The idea for the new fundraiser, ďA Lifetime of FriendsĒ came to me like a flash of lightening, I considered it to be some kind of guidance. It would mean so much to me if you could find it in your heart to donate.

For information on where to send your donations please email at janegatesart@yahoo.com or call 608-868-4379.
