I am excited to invite you to Christmas in July, brought to you by Abandoned Pet Rescue.
It begins with a Zoom Party, today, at 5pm. You can see all about it here:
Why do I like Abandoned Pet Rescue? Because they take care of dogs and cats that others cannot. They have a fun, caring community built around these dogs and cats. They usually have in-person events, but since it is 2020, Zoom and virtual events are the way to go....
All during July this year, I’ll be donating 10% of any painting sold to Abandoned Pet Rescue.
In honor of Simon, Ghost, and Tuxie…three cats that rescued Andy and me.
Please check out the links and others at the event. I’ll post more about them this month, too.
You can see lots of different paintings or order your own pet painting:
Abstract Palm Tree Paintings
Eekee Monsters for Adoption
See you there and online!

In 2004, I knew a fun loving, courageous girl named Angie, who bartended in Hollywood/Fort Lauderdale area. Her Bruno was already older, but one of the sweetest dogs I'd met. I have no idea what happened to this Angie, but hey, maybe she'll read this and update me?
I was taking every drawing and painting class I could find that were held after day job hours. Pencils, specifically a 4B, were my favorites as they are inexpensive tools and if you can draw then you can paint.
Angie requested a commission of her Bruno. This was my first ever pet portrait. I stumbled upon the photo on the date of this posting and thought to share.
This drawing is (or was?) 11 by 14 inches, pencil on cotton rag paper, circa 2004.
There are two pet holidays this week!
This Thursday, August 8th, is International Cat Day. I wonder what Heathclif and Garfield are doing all day?
This Saturday, August 10th, is Spoil Your Dog Day. It is also happens to be National Be Lazy Day...maybe take lots of naps with your dog?
I'll be adding some paint to big pup Carly while cat Simon sips from his very own studio water dish. If I'm lazy at all, it will on purpose, swinging from our hammock while enjoying time with my guy Andy.
Whatever you do, are you going to give a scratch behind the ears to your best furry friend?
Smiles, with paint on my hands,
