One Good Turn Deserves Another…
My dog loves the park behind our house more than life and we go there most every day so she can see who’s left what scent behind from the day before. On one particular day, she found a very sick 6 week old kitten. Lucky for everyone, Daphey lives with cats and just wanted to say hi to this tiny bundle of fur. I scooped that baby up and brought him home with me. So, it’s late in the evening and I have a big art show in the morning. What am I going to do?! This sweet kitty needs medical attention and a soft place to fall. I start making calls but am having no luck. And then I encounter the “Angel” …Ms. Angela Goodwin of Buster’s Friends Rescue who says she will come by and get Izzy at my show the next day (yeah, I named him… I thought he was a she at the time). So, now Issac is a big beautiful lover boy with a wonderful loving home and I am forever grateful for what Angela did that day. I always joke with her that I want to buy her a building someday and while that is not fiscally possible for me, I have an alternative that is.
Introducing the “52 Canvas Pick Up”
I am creating an original acrylic painting once a week for Buster’s Friends Rescue and will post that work HERE on my website and Facebook fan page as I get them done. Some of them will have a ‘buy it now’ price and some of them will be saved for the event at the end of 52 weeks at Winter Street Studios in mid October of 2014. Every cent will go to help Buster’s Friends save and treat homeless animals. I am thrilled to be able to give back to Buster’s Friends in a big way and am looking forward to what my work and your dollars can do.
Be sure and join us for the kick off party at my studio at 2101 Winter Street (#34) on December 14th from 2 to 5 pm. We’ll treat you to some nibbles, beverages and good cheer. And since it coincides with the normal Winter Street Open Studios, you’ll be able to browse all the other studios there too.
