Kevin Robertson has been doing oil paintings for just over a year. He has sold more than 2 dozen of his original paintings. He paints mostly landscapes, lighthouses and ships. Kevin is trying to earn enough money through Indie GoGo to be able to get a good back stock of paintings done so that he can sell them at local art fairs and farmers markets. Indie GoGo, like the popular Kickstarter, is a website that helps those in need and creative folks find the funds to realize their dreams and/or wishes. People donate money, get a reward for their money and the artist/person can fulfill their wishes. Unlike Kickstarter, Indie GoGo users can get any money that is donated to them, whether their goal is fully reached or not.
