A Dog (Pet) a Day Project
Recently my friend Kat Coy, who is a fabulous painter, (see her work here) shared one of Clair Hartmann's wonderful dog paintings (see Clair's work here). Clair has this fantastic project to support her local animal rescue. Both Kat and Clair have fantastic descriptions of "how to take photos of your pets" and Clair has some remarkable pet poses.
Hmmm...1. I have a sweet friend who is passionate about a local animal rescue.
2. I love to paint dogs (and cats).
3. I want to continue learning from daily paintings, and sometimes finding subjects is time consuming.
So, I hope to copy Clair Hartmann: paint daily paintings of pets and support the local animal rescue that is my friend's passion. These will be 8" x 10" size. Twenty-five percent of the proceeds from these pet painting sales will be donated to Animal Crackers. If there are enough completed, a book containing the best images will be created with 100% of proceeds going to Animal Crackers. If you send me an image, your pet could be a "Cover Dog (or cat). To any of you that are coming May 9 to my Spring Open Studio to look around, please think about bringing a photo of your best pet!!
