Join us to celebrate the animals and help raise some money for Sanctuary One, an animal rescue and care farm in the Applegate Valley! Food trucks will be on site, along with animal art, music for dancing and RoxyAnn wine. The artist reception (4-7PM) is free, with 100% of art sales proceeds benefitting Sanctuary One. The band starts at 6PM, with a $10 cover charge, where half is donated to Sanctuary One! Advance reservations for tables of 8 are available for $70 by calling the tasting room at 541-776-2315.Share on Facebook

We have photos from our book event last week, thanks to Midge Raymond who came prepared to take lots of photos, while also helping us manage the book sales process! We had a full house at Umpqua Bank Potrero Hill, and sold 59 books, with all proceeds (over $650) benefitting Muttville Senior Dog Rescue. A big thanks to Kimberly Floren for arranging the event and creating swag bags for all our attendees! Muttville even brought several dogs who are looking for new families. What a wonderful organization! Find out more about their work, and see their available dogs at http://www.muttville.org.

The completed paintings of Pookie, Zeus and Zena are soon to be headed down to California! They are part of the “Limitless Love” project, which is now a 501(C)(3) – for a traveling museum show featuring artwork of Pookie, Zeus and Zena. Admission fees to the show will be donated to an animal charity. These sweet dogs are being memorialized in a wide variety of art forms and styles by over 100 artists in the US and Europe – paintings, drawings, Legos, animation, etc. My commission was to capture Pookie, Zeus, and Zena’s expressions, in a collection of whimsical 10 x 10 inch portraits. Some of the photos I was working with were quite blurry, and the coloring in each dog changed quite a bit as the dogs aged. That made this a much bigger challenge than I anticipated, as I needed to get the same level of detail across all of the paintings and the colors/age of the dogs looking consistent across the paintings for each dog – something to keep in mind for future projects!Share on Facebook
It will feel a bit sad to take these Sanctuary One paintings, and the Doxie painting, down from the main reception and waiting area at Ashland Community Hospital next week. My husband works at the hospital and walks past them several times a day, so I hear that there are often small kids with their parents looking at the sweet animal faces and commenting on them. The paintings will be split up and move back to my home studio, the Ashland Art Center, and to Starbucks on the south side of Ashland in early June. Greeting cards and magnets with these images will still be available at the hospital upstairs in the outpatient waiting area.
