Helping Paws

I belong to the Canine Art Guild, a wonderful group of "dog" artists. Each year,due to the hard work of a number of members, the CAG puts together an online exhibition entitled "Helping Paws" where participating artists donate work and pledges a % of the sale of that work to a specified Animal Charity.
I submitted two pieces this year and, although the show does not go live until December 15th, I wanted to post the news in case anyone is looking for a great Christmas gift that gives in two ways :-)
"What's Up Dach?" and "Soulful" were accepted into the 2010 Art Show at the Dog Show earlier this year, with Soulful winning a Fourth Place Award in the Drawing Category.



SOULFUL
Frame Size: 12"w x 12"h, Painting size: 5"w x 5"h

Fully framed in a simple, dark frame that has slightly distressed edges and matted with a warm mushroom and off white double matt .

Your purchase of "Soulful" will send a donation of $75.00 to the American Lab Rescue. This rescue group is a not-for-profit organization specializing in re-homing pure and part bred labrador retrievers and in just over 5 years American Lab Rescue has helped place just under 4,000 dogs!





WHAT'S UP DACH?
Frame Size: 13"w x 11"h, Painting size: 6"w x 4"h

Fully framed in a simple, dark frame that has slightly distressed edges and matted with a neutral grey-brown and off white double matt.

Your purchase of "What's Up Dach?" will send a donation of $75.00 to the Canadian Dachshund Rescue. This rescue group is a not-for-profit organization specializing in re-homing pure and part bred dachshunds and in since 2001, the CDR has helped over 700 dachshunds and dachshund mixes find forever homes !

Both groups need financial help for their ongoing vet bills and foster family support. If you have any further questions or would like more detailed photos, please do not hesitate to contact me

Wonderful paintings. I love the humorous tile of the Dachshund painting:)

These are both terrific Kim and they look fabulous the way you have framed them. Hope the show is a great success. Merry Christmas to you and your family and all the best for 2011. xx
