Special Offer: Sea Angels Fine Art Collection

Black Capped Chickadee: Maine State Bird
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
This chickadee had come to visit to see my artwork, but was too shy to declare his presence, so he hid in the foliage. 
 
 
 
Dear Readers,
 
My work as a whistleblower/journalist, and this website, are supported solely by donations, which are also needed to help me cover basic living expenses.
 
In addition to being a writer, I am an artist, something I've not advertised on this website. I used to do mostly paintings and drawings (I was trained in Fine Arts at two of the best schools in the country); but more recently I have been making pieces from what I find on the beach. I am a dedicated beachcomber from way back and have a huge collection of seashells, sea glass, stones and driftwood. Walking the beaches, searching for treasures, in places I have lived and visited, is one of the greatest joys of my life. I've never yet found a gold dubloon, but you never know...
 
When I first began making my pieces they were gifts for family and friends, but a few years ago I decided to offer them for sale in my local area of coastal Maine, which provided me with another way to bring some money in. I don't sell anything from the Internet, as I don't run a business.
 
However, I am now making a special offer to my readers. For a donation of $50.00 or more, I will send you one of my pieces. I can't guarantee what it will be, or how long it will take to get to you.  Again, this is not a "commercial sale", so please, don't make the donation with that idea in mind.
 
If you're like me and love beautiful things from the ocean, I think you will like my artwork. And you will be helping me to continue my work and to cover the expenses to keep this website online.
 
One caveat: the pieces are fragile, because they are made with glass bottles.  People who have bought them have told me they were able to send them as gifts through the mail, as long as they were packed securely with bubble wrap. I have pieces of all sizes, but I can only send the smaller ones, to avoid breakage and to keep the postage cost down.
 
I will use the regular postal service only, so the pieces can be mailed to either a street address or  P.O. box.
 
All you have to do is provide a valid mailing address with your donation. All pieces are named (example: Poetry of the Tides), hand signed by the artist (me) and come with tags (see below) to show authenticity.
 
Your name and personal information will be kept STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL.
 
TO MAKE A DONATION
 
Send to:
 
Barbara Hartwell
PO Box 22
Old Orchard Beach, Maine
04064
 
I can accept only cash or postal money orders. (I do not have a bank account, so please, no checks .)
 
Money orders should be made out to: "Barbara Hartwell".
 
If sending cash please secure by wrapping in heavy paper or foil.
 
Thank you for your consideration.
 
Blessings from the Maine Coast,
 
Barbara Hartwell

Celebrating God's Glory on the Maine Coast
 
Created from treasures of the sea, each piece of art is unique. My pieces are made from seashells, driftwood, sea glass and beach stones, hand collected over decades. Inspired by my love of the ocean and the natural beauty of God's creation, from beachcombing to finished works of art. Memorable gifts to be treasured. Each piece is made with a prayer for God's blessings to You and Yours.
