I know this isn't the poll's purpose but I was thinking of having one goal/purpose/charity and then buy one of David Shepherd's paintings. We can give it to Stephen and hopefully spread the word.
Sorry if it's a stupid idea, it was just a thought.
I love this idea.
What I think of it is that it's do-able.
Just a thought on this and please do not take offense, it is most definitely not intended as such. Your idea is not stupid, it is kind and thoughtful.
My thoughts are:
Stephen doesn't need anything and while this may be a kind gesture and monies for said item would be put towards a good purpose. I fail to see how it may help to get word out about what we are doing?! Please feel free to slap me about the face if I am being an idiot i.t.r.
Surely, our individual efforts being used collectively for a good and common goal or purpose, possibly for a charity that he may even recommend or support, would be a far more intimate and generous gesture than a painting, a print no less, not an original.
PLEASE please do not be offended by this, I REALLY do not wish to offend anyone, it is just my view and you may feel free to slam this too if necessary. *hugs and rushes for cover in case of any flying objects*
Of course I (we) are not offended by your thoughts and ideas.
I know that Stephen probably doesn't need
a painting or anything. What I thought of was making people aware that you can buy these paintings/prints and make sure that the money you pay for them are put into charity. It'd be a lovely gesture to Stephen from his fans, kill two flies with one hit.
Please, don't hesitate to critisise or just tell us what you feel. We need your views.
