Pandas are (still) Standing By!

I’m writing this Friday afternoon, as my Kickstarter project is a mere $600 away from funding. There are still more than 10 days to go till the pledge drive is over, but don’t stop pledging now. Tomorrow I will be posting some additional goals for this project to go see pandas and make art inspired by my trip.

Update!!! We have reached our goal, but don’t stop now!

Tomorrow I will be posting my stretch goals in an update. These are things that would be helpful on my trip, but not essential to actually being able to go on this trip. I would point out, this is one of those rare opportunities to get some of my original art at a greatly reduced price. You can see my paintings (and what they sell for on the website of my Whidbey Island Gallery representative. Why am I offering these paintings for so much less? Well, primarily because you are paying for them without having seen them yet. I’m hoping you’ll like them when I’m done, but it’s not quite the same experience as seeing a painting you love and choosing to buy it. so there you have it!

And of course, we will be getting to see some of our favorite american pandas. Pinky and Tai shan, for sure, and hopefully Yun Zi, Zhen Zhen, (my adopted panda) and the Meihems.

But now, on with our show!


Pinky: what’s wrong wif dis cookie?

Don’t take Pinky’s word for it! There are still some things that Pinky didn’t get her paws on! Check them out here!

Panda on!

      It appears that it is very expensive being Pinky. I am just glad that she has her daddy’s credit card and not mine.

      Yes! very exciting about Kickstarter. I’ve almost reached my first goal, which means I’ll have to go get a Hepatitis A shot. Probably a good idea, but not really looking forward to it.

        It’s funny because it’s like Yay! More funds!! But no! Injection!! Definitely a good idea to get the Hep A shot. Before we went to China we got jabbed with everything the doctor recommended 🙂 Just leave a good amount of time between the needle and the holiday so if you have a reaction you can get over it in time.

          I recently got a Tetanus shot, and they also want you to have a flu shot if you are going to romp with baby pandas. I know what you mean, good news bad news. I’m almost to my first stretch goal, so I guess I better get an appointment to get the shot so that I have time to get over it.


What does your inner panda think?
