Sorry for taking so long to update my blog, but the holidays have had me busy. Two weeks ago, I participated in “Art Unleashed” a fundraiser for the Lexington Humane Society. I featured my recent animal paintings. And made some good friends.
The shelter/adoption center always plays classical music, for the animals to enjoy.
Cats have a nice lounge where they can play…
and chill out!
Most of the dogs shared a kennel with a friend, so they had a companion while they waited for their new home.
The show was a lot of fun, and thanks to all the kind folks who came out and helped our four-legged-friends!
If you are looking for something wonderful and unique that your loved one can enjoy EVERY DAY…give the gift of art!
In Lexington today, Friday 12th, I will be at the Lexington Humane Society for “Art Unleashed”. 5:30-8pm. Featuring animal art. A portion of sales help take care of the animals.
Also – I will be in Ripley, OH this weekend to celebrate their Traditional Christmas Festival. I am showing with other local artists at Ripley’s Farmer’s Market. It is in the center of town, and a great opportunity to enjoy one of the Ohio River’s great rivertowns.
Don’t Forget, in the Cinci area, I still have a great show hanging at the FUSION gallery.
Sorry it took so long to get the pictures from last week’s art show up, but I am scrambling to do 3 art shows in 2 weeks. A little snow slowed the crowd on Saturday, but we had a great crowd on sunday! Thanks everyone for coming and participating.
Here are a few pictures from the show.
If you missed this one, I will be at Ripley this coming Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Also, I will be at the Lexington Humane Society for “Art Unleashed” this Friday from 5:30-9pm.
