midway special + update

Day 25... we're half way into our project!  So far we've raised about a quarter of the funds needed to make the trip to get our things out of storage.  We'd like to thank all of you who have purchased our paintings, made contributions, shared our story, prayed for us and visit often to see our new listings!  We have been surrounded by such a fantastic community (both in our daily interactions and our online community).  We are so thankful for the support.

Today we have a very special painting to mark our half-way point.  Our good friend Paul Urich has so generously offered to paint a piece especially for The Retrieval Project.  He has been featured in galleries and his art has sold for thousands of dollars.  Because of his generous offer, you have an opportunity to purchase one of Paul's original paintings for just $100 through our etsy site.  To see more of Paul's work, click here.  We are so honored that such an amazing artist as Paul would offer his work to you for our project, and at such a great price!
