Hello!  My name is Jim Myers.  I'm an artist who was recently given the opportunity to start a small art gallery and have my own studio to work in!  I paint pictures of the "motorcycle life", landscapes, pretty much anything that strikes my fancy.  I also recently started engraving beer mugs and other glasses!  My mom has been awesomely supportive.  In fact, she's paying the rent on the gallery space since I don't currently have a regular income.  I AM an artist, afterall!  I would like to be able to raise the funds to take over the bills on the place!

What I am mainly trying to raise funds for are the major business expenses associated with an endeavor such as a gallery.  I completely lack any kind of an advertising budget, which would help my local reach immensely.  Also, I'm need to raise funds to buy supplies, and ship artwork out to where it needs to go.  I have two pieces that need to get to Canada, which will most assuredly NOT be cheap!

I'll offer some cool rewards for all who donate!  So, please, by all means, contribute OFTEN!
