Just finished my painted tote bag for the “Art for Pitties” fundraiser which begins August 15th via the internet.  Fifty+ artists have donated one of a kind tote bags and other items to be auctioned off to support Even Chance, a Pit Bull resource, rescue and advocacy group based in San Diego. I am a Pit Bull owner and have also been a Pit Bull foster parent. They are amazing dogs – smart, loving and total “people pleasers”. I’ve painted my Pit Bull Riley several times, so for this tote bag I painted Roscoe, our first foster dog! Please support this fundraiser – they are also auctioning off art which is not on a tote bag. Betty White even donated something – no kidding!  www.artforpitties.blogspot.com

My work is on display at Bloomsbury Bookstore Coffee Shop on Main Street in Ashland through the end of June!  Some new pieces – “Pug in Blue” and “Wide Eyed Red” are there, along with some other paintings and prints from my show earlier this year!  Also,  thanks to everyone who voted in the Mutt Lynch Wine Label competition! “Wide Eyed Red” made it into the “Top 10″,  but was not selected as the final label choice.  Seventy-seven artists entered the competition – it was an impressive collection of dog art!

Join us in Jacksonville, OR on May 1st for this wonderful evening benefiting Sanctuary One & animal rescue. There is a silent auction, in addition to the live “Bachelor Auction” (which should be quite entertaining!), and you have the chance to bid on one of my custom pet portraits!

Thanks to everyone who came to see my work on February 5th! My camera malfunctioned during this event, so most of these photos were taken as I was setting up and at the very end of the evening.

Join me on Friday, February 5th for Ashland’s First Friday Art Walk. I will be selling several original works, plus framed giclée prints. The Hospital Auxiliary and the Ashland Art Center benefit from every sale, plus I donate 10% to the Friends of the Animal Shelter. It’s a family friendly event with appetizers, music, wine, and of course, great art! Hope to see you there! Three of my paintings will continue to hang in the outpatient lobby through the end of March.

Here is the finished Shira painting, which Brad and Eliza won at the PussNBoots silent auction! Shira was so much fun to paint -she reminds me of my tabby from college.
