In the works...

Just a little note to say that there is a new piece on Ebay and it will be featured for ART HELP

That is the UNDERCOVER CAPER painting in the Cat & Mouse Toy tales series. This painting will help The Norther Rockies Regional Office of the Humane Society. They have a special fund that we support from AHA that helps their crisis rescues.
We recently helped with the housing of shelter animals who lost their entire shelter to a fire.
Art Helping Animals artists are so glad to lend our artistry to this wonderful cause.

Also new on the easel is the start of a double Mastiff portrait and a piece for Valentines's Day that hopefully will help Dachshund Rescue.
Pictures soon.

Stay tuned!

FIRST LOOK! Undercover Caper

This new piece is on the easel and is the latest in the CAT & MOUSE TOY TALES Series.

Undercover Caper is another fun oil painting that stars the duo in yet another story together.
The reference image for this painting was of Emmi and her favorite toy mouse captured as
I was changing the bed linens. She was playing the game we play where she hides while I tuck them in...her toys are always there too...and when I lifted up the sheet to play with her I got the idea of having her mouse toy doing what she was doing. The Undercover Caper was the result.

Of course I am laughing the whole time. I have to get the image quickly (I think) and didn't have time to get a great exposure but she didn't budge. Which made the whole thing funnier...she did her best Mona Lisa thing and I got a great idea for the painting.

Available soon for helping homeless animals.

Helping Missy...and she needs it.

Missy is a Dalmatian from GA that was saved from death by a rescue there...she was found under a house with her umpteeth litter...unfortunately the litter had to be euthanized. They are a small shelter with no resources and did the best they could for this poor girl.

The good news is she is in foster care because this rescue who couldn't keep her did the right thing and got in touch with DALMATIAN RESCUE OF TAMPA of the best! Susan, the founder of DRTB and friend who keeps me up on the latest homeless Dalmatian there, tells me she has heartworms, an ear infection and a bad case of kennel cough.

Missy needs lots of medical care and she is only 5 yrs old. She is getting rehabbed with love and care and will be a wonderful girl for her own family in no time ...she deserves it, she was almost bred to death. Imagine being her with no love and care for herself for 5 yrs.
Look at your own pets and companions and imagine that!
I can't.
But it is a fact and we have to act.
I will post the painting as soon as there are spots to show! It is on the easel.
contact the rescue or myself if you have any questions.

Contact DRTB if you need details about how to adopt her in the future or if you want to help in her support. She could use it. In the meantime I am working on a painting that will be offered to assist in her rehab.

She is the inspiration for the painting. Let others know too. We are all in this together.
