Letter of Care

An original oil painting of a still life titled Rainbow Roses by Kelli Folsom

Here we are on the cusp of spring which should be a joyous time with the hope of new birth and we find ourselves in the middle of this worldwide pandemic. This is NOT what we wanted or what we hoped for. 

I’ve been so concerned about the members of my artistic community, many of whom are at high risk during this time. Many of you are caretakers of elderly parents, many of you are mothers whose children have been sent home and now your plate is even more full.  Many of you are dealing with worry, stress, and anxiety. I’ve been racking my brain trying to figure out how I can help.  

I think that’s the main thing right now is that we try to fill this time with as much positivity and try to make it valuable.  That’s easier said than done, I know when the mind wants to constantly bring us back to fear. So I’m accepting the fear because it’s not a bad thing nor does it make me weak to feel afraid at this time for my friends. 

We can find gratitude. This time has shown me just how much we need each other and we can be connected even when isolated. I’ve been so impressed by my VITAL members and the outpouring of love and support. It’s comforting to know we’re in this together and not alone. 

I’ve been noticing a lot of artists offering sales on their content at this time. I’m not passing judgment of course, but I have noticed that the discounts are perhaps not anything greater than what they might normally offer. 
I definitely agree that we can use this time to be inspired and to learn. 
I agree that watching painting lessons or reading is far better for us than news or Netflix binging.

I’d like to offer some tutorials and videos to you for FREE in case you do not want to spend any money during this time, which is totally understandable. So below is the list: 

*VITAL Art Sessions members the starred content isn’t for you as you already have access to it in our group and website. 

IF you would like more content than this I have decided to offer my landscape series and sampler packs at 70% OFF which is the absolute best I can do without giving them away for free. 

This week only, use coupon code: 70OFF upon checkout
GO HERE to see the Plein Air Video Packages. 
GO HERE to see the Still Life Sampler Packs.
*Vital members you already have the sampler pack content please don’t buy. 

Love in Light, Kelli

  1. Kelli, so kind and thoughtful of you to offer for free. Thank you for considering others.

  2. Kelli,
    Thank you for your letters which are a positive feedback in a time when all is doom and gloom.
    As a physician I can tell you that we are going to overcome this viral crisis so long all the public use their common sense and stay at home and use the standard precautions provided by the CDC.
    You made my day today with that beautiful still life work!
    M.
