Art Sale for a New Life – Extended + Special Offer

Hello my dear friends πŸ˜€

Β  Well, since the campaign was ending in less than 2 days and i have already reached 75% of my goal, which makes me incredibly happy, i have decided to extend the campaign for one more week and do some special offers.

Β  I genuinely want to share my art with people and i think this is a great opportunity for you to get a signed print from me. I lowered the prices to hopefully make them more affordable to all of you. I really do want you to have a nice print in your hands, something that will remind you your participation in this adventure with me πŸ™‚

TEMPLATE TEST_res

Β  Please spread the news about this special offer! Tell your friends about it, maybe if they were thinking to get a print, they will be more motivated to do so now.

Β  This is a final offer, the campaign will end in August 21st. There won’t be any more extensions.

Β  It is an offer that will not be repeated! So act NOW! πŸ˜€

Art Sale for a New Life – 4 days left

72-4days

http://igg.me/at/VlightArtSale/

 

Hello my friends πŸ˜€

Β  Only 4 days left for the campaign to end and we have reached 72%! I couldn’t be happier and i feel so grateful for all your support! πŸ˜€ I think it’s still possible to reach 100%, so that IndieGogo doesn’t keep 9%. If the goal is reached the fee is only 4%. Sharing and contributing even 1$ is still very much appreciated. The number of contributors is more important than what they contribute for the campaign to stay high in the trending list. And i do need a lot of names so i can make a cool artwork as promised, featuring the names of all the contributors. So please do not hesitate to contribute even 1$ and get the Artist Supporter perk πŸ™‚

Β I’m also editing the photos for the Paradise on Earth – Part II post…If you haven’t seen Part I, check it out now: Paradise on Earth – Part I

Yours truly,

Alex V-Light

Join me on this adventure πŸ˜€

Paradise on Earth – Part I

Β  Kavourotripes is a well hidden paradise located in the middle of Sithonia. Even though access is hard, it’s a very famous destination and a lot of people visit it to enjoy the magical turquoise water and the contrasting white rocks.

Β  I was hearing a lot about this place and it’s not very far away from where i live but believe me no matter what you hear, or how many gorgeous photos you see, nothing compares to the experience of actually being there. I can confirm that now that i’ve been there πŸ™‚ It was magical. A paradise on earth. So many saturated colors, your eyes would have a hard time to conceive that they are real…

Β  To reach this well hidden gem, you need to leave your car in a dirt road in the forest and walk all the way down. The most approachable place is the most crowded as well. It’s a little beach enclave, the only place there with sand and even has a little bar and a ship that transfers people to a second beach enclave many meters away. Since i treasure my personal space and prefer to hear the tunes of cicadas instead of babies crying and people’s cacophonic compositions, we took the hard approach and walked a lot to reach this beautiful area pictured in the gallery below. There was a lonely tree at the edge of the rocky cliff, providing some much needed shade and an excellent place to rest.

Β  I took a few photos of the surrounding environment but it didn’t take long, to decide that it was time for that long awaited swim. We climbed down some rocks and left our stuff down there at the water level. Some flat rocks, provided an excellent surface for that but my tender feet still complained about their roughness. There were many sea urchins around adding a bit of danger to the whole experience but with waters so crystal clear you could easily see where it was safe to step to.

Β  Need i explain, the feeling of refreshed happiness when my sunburned skin was surrounded by the therapeutic turquoise water? I leave that for your imagination…And i’ll end this post here leaving you wanting more…Cause we all know that part I means that there is a part II coming up soon…

Ormos Panagias

 

Hello my dear friends πŸ˜€

Β  First stop on our short tour of Sithonia, is a place called Ormos Panagias. It’s not a village, as it’s considered to be a part of Agios Nikolaos, a little village located a few kilometeres north, to the mainland. But Ormos Panagias has many accommodations and attracts a lot of people. It’s famous for its fresh fish, calamari and octopus, as the fishermen there use the port a lot. But it’s probably best known for the Mount Athos boat tours that leave daily from the port. We hadΒ  to make a quick stop there to snap a few photos since the waters were simply irresistible. No time for a quick swim though, we had to move on to even better places πŸ˜‰

Β  Enjoy a few photos in full screen gallery view πŸ˜€

ART SALE FOR A NEW LIFE UPDATE:

Β  Only 10 DAYS LEFT and we are still stuck at 65% of the goal! We need to make this thing moving again…Share, tell your friends about it, contribute even 1$, leave me a comment on the campaign page! I know it’s still possible to reach 100%…Let’s do this so IndieGogo doesn’t get to keep 9% of the money…If i reach my goal it will only keep 4%…

Art Sale for a New Life – 14 days left

Art Sale for a New Life 61

Hello my friends! πŸ˜€

Β  We just passed the mid point of the campaign and we are currently at 61% of the funding goal. Say what? πŸ™‚ I know, i’m amazed and feeling truly blessed for actually achieving so much in a little more than 2 weeks. I couldn’t make it without your help and I want you to know that i’ll forever be grateful for that.

Β  With 14 days to go and still 39% to cover, i’m positive it can be done. They say, if it doesn’t happen it was because you didn’t want it bad enough. I want it bad enough, i never wanted something so bad and with your support we can make it happen.

Β  Please share the campaign with your friends, let’s use the power of social media, if you have a blog and think my campaign deserves a shoutout please do so πŸ™‚ Add your personal touch when you share the campaign link, it’s more likely that people will respond to it if you tell them why this might be worth their precious time…

Β  Also if you have an IndieGogo account or wouldn’t mind creating one, your comments on the campaign page can significantly help for two reasons. Strangers are most likely to contribute when they can read the opinion of other contributors and Indiegogo ranks campaigns with comments higher on the trending list, making them easier to be discovered.

Β  Until now all the contributors should have received a personal e-mail with a link to download my e-book and for those who claimed a print perk as well, a question about which print they want. Some of you have not responded yet, in case you didn’t get that e-mail please let me know. The sooner you tell me your choices, i can make a list and go to print all the photos together after the campaign ends so you can get your prints faster.

Β  Thank you once more for supporting my dream and showing me that anything is possible πŸ™‚

Yours,
Alex V-Light
