Robert- final steps of new greyhound graphite portrait.

One week later and, at last,  Robert is looking more like an alert greyhound.

I will put him out of sight for a few days and polish him later on next week.

This is my first portrait for the CAG's next online show : Helping Paws 2008 Exhibition.  

The idea behind the show is to have each artist pledge a percentage of their sales in support of an animal welfare effort. 

I would like to help and support the Dumfriesshire and Cumbria Greyhound Rescue

I have fallen for these gorgeous, gentle and loyal canines and have chosen to donate 20% from my sale of this piece to this specific Greyhound Rescue.  Dumfriesshire and Cumbria Rescue is the only greyhound re-homing in the Dumfries & Galloway and Cumbria region. They are a young dynamic charity and have found homes for over 450 greyhounds in 6 years.

I am planning on having three ready for the show.

"Helping Paws 2008" goes on line on October the 1st 2008 for 4 months. 

Tomorrow's Monday: first day of school. After waltzing around in circles this last week trying to get all sorts done and organised. I have a (nice) feeling it will be a relatively quiet day allowing for the second "rescue"entry to get well underway.  

Have a great Sunday.
