Well my dear hubby has been busy while I have been under the weather and the project that I mentioned in my last post is now up and running, and I am looking for new dog rescue groups to partner with in the near future (never enough hours in the day and the kids are on holidays at the moment).
The new project is an ongoing series of Dog Paintings in various styles and media and can be viewed at http://dogpaintings.com.au, which I hope in time will be a daily dog painting blog – time constraints and commissions before Christmas (added to me not being 100% well) means that it is unlikely (LOL ok highly improbable) that I will paint daily, so I am aiming at finishing one of these small paintings every day that I do paint. A percentage of the sale of these small artworks will be donated to dog rescue groups, at the moment this includes the Animal Protection Society and K9 Rescue.
After the flooding and house re-arranging that resulted in a studio clean out, I have gone through my art folders and have listed some artwork from my personal collection that has not been offered for sale previously. You can see all of the artwork currently available in the Dog Paintings ART FOR SALE.
I’ve also entered three of my dog portraits in the Canine Art Guild’s Helping Paws online Exhibition which featrues an international collection of artists who have partnered with local animal shelters and rescues and have pledged a percentage of sales from this exhibition to support of animal welfare efforts.
In addition, visitors to the online exhibition can vote for their favorite artwork and three People’s Choice honours will be awarded, with cash donations being made to the shelters affiliated with the artworks receiving the most votes for People’s Choice awards so please visit the “Helping Paws” Exhibition and vote for your favourite.
These are the three pieces that I have entered into the exhibition:
“Peaches & Cream”, Pomeranean in Pastels
"Peaches & Cream" Pomeranian in pastels by Michelle Wrighton
“Angel in Blue” American Staffordshire Bull Terrier painting in oils
"Angel in Blue" American Staffordshire Terrier in Oils
“Noble” German Shepherd Dog, painting in charcoal
"Noble" German Shepherd Dog in charcoal by Michelle Wrighton
All three of these dog paintings are available for sale with 10% being donated to the Animal Protection Society and K9 Rescue. If you like any of these three paintings, I would appreciate you vote in the Peoples Choice awards to help my selected Rescue Groups!
