This fantastic event is hosted by Loot Found and Made in Turners Falls, MA to benefit the Franklin County Regional Dog Shelter. Just under 100 local artists were challenged to transform a recycled thrift shop painting, keeping at least 50% of the original and adding a "creature" (loosely defined) to the work. The completed paintings will be auctioned off on September 19, with viewing beginning at 4pm and live auction beginning at 6pm.Read More
For those of you here who aren't in touch with me personally, I want to share that my White Shepherd, Koda, had her front leg amputated in June to fight osteosarcoma, a deadly bone cancer. With lots of love and high-quality supplements, she's doing great so far! However, the cost of her care is tough for a 'starving artist.' I'm pleased to announce that I've created digital manipulations of my fine art drawings to help raise money for her surgical bills and medical expenses in a NEW Etsy shop.
Please consider sharing and spreading the word! I appreciate your support.Read More
