The fifth Canine Art Guild online exhibition is now live...!
"Helping Paws 2008" is now online!
A wide and varied display of dog art can be viewed (and the best: all is for sale! Definately worth a visit!). Each and every artist entered has pledge to donate proceeds of their sales to a shelter or charity of their choice. Well worth a visit.
Here is one of my three entries "Close to Home"
"Close to home"
Mixed media (graphite/charcoal) on paper, 20x20 cm
200 Euros (20% donated to DCGR)
This is the best place for any dog: out in the open, on a long lead, beside its loved ones (not only one pair of legs but two!) discovering new sights and sounds.
This black lab is well surrounded and at peace with its life.
Through my art I would like to heighten the awareness of how these gorgeous, quiet and loyal canines are in dire need of a warm safe bed of a good home.
The Dumfriesshire & Cumbria is a Scottish charity focused on re-homing retired or abandoned Greyhounds. As a charity they not only use what they raise for kennel fees, vet fees, fostering expenses and advertising but also try to raise public awareness of the plight of dogs at the end of their racing/coursing careers. To date 500 ex racers and coursers have found new homes.
