So after many paintings of lovely doggies, I have completed one of a nudie cat! Boris the Sphynx!!!
I drew it up last Thursday eve and got busy on it Friday, Saturday and then finished it up this morning!! I am glad I used more colors than just one for the background. I think it helped with having colors that are in his face also be in the background. I am super happy how this one came out!!!! 🙂
Back on to the birds of prey paintings……………………….
Boris the Sphynx 16×20 canvas
I create art therefore I donate…………….
I always put away 10% of all my sales to help animals in need. I try and keep to my key 5 rescues that I work with, but if I hear or read about an animal in need outside my 5, I will do what I can with what I have earned. Might not be much, could be $20 but every dollar can help.
Well today I donated to Paphaven.org, which is one of my key 5. I donated $100 to a sweet little dog which they call Little One (but foster mom is calling her Butternut), that was rescued. She was a stray that was hit by a car. Had some rear hip damage and hip is not sitting right and she needs another surgery to hopefully fix it.
I hope to earn loads of $ this year so I can help out more animals in need……………
If you can, please donate to help this dog or any other animal in need out there in the world that could use some help!!!
So I went to an estate sale yesterday where a 96 year old woman had seemingly lived her whole entire life in. Her children had passed away before her. Being sad, she spent lots of money on things she really did not need to fill the hole in her heart. Now she has passed and her belongings are moving on in life. Some of it junk, some never warn clothing and shoes. Lots of kitchenware, books and craft supplies.
I found 2 old beautifully crocheted bed spreads/table covers. One was repairable with just having one small hole. The other was pretty ratty and stained. I am salvaging what is good on this and making some pillows. Utilizing the burlap coffee sacks I have acquired and covering the top with the cut pieces of the crochet blanket.
At least I can give some new life to parts of something I believe she had handmade herself…….
