Featured Artist at Bloomsbury Bookstore Coffee Shop – June 2010

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!

Help me get "Wide Eyed Red" on a Mutt Lynch Wine Label!

Beginning Wednesday, May 19th, through Monday, May 24th, you can vote for my painting “Wide Eyed Red” to be featured on a Mutt Lynch Wine label! Voting is done online through the Dog Art Today website You can vote once per day per computer. Ten percent of the proceeds of sales from this wine will be donated to the San Francisco SPCA!

Here’s a sneak peek at my newly completed painting of Shira – January 2010

Puss-N-Boots Ball, October 24th, 2009

Come support Friends of the Animal Shelter by attending the annual PussNBoots Costume Ball on October 24th at the Ashland Armory! Bill and I will be there – still advertising our foster dog in hopes of finding him a great home…Bill will be wearing the same advertising boards that I wore in the Halloween Parade (with Remy), and I will be dressed as Remy for the costume ball, of course! Keep your fingers crossed for great interest amongst all the dog lovers! Oh, and you also have the opportunity to bid on one of my smaller custom pet portraits – or you can use the credit to upgrade to a larger painting!
