Unchained is hosting their annual Mardi Gras Masquerade Gala at Bargetto Winery in Soquel, California! Saturday, Feb 6th 2016 from 6 pm to 9pm

I will be donating a custom pet portrait that will be in their silent auction!

They are an awesome organization that has helped many at risk youths and learn compassion and help animals in need!

About Unchained:

Canines Teaching Compassion is an Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT) program that helps to change the lives of kids and save the lives of dogs by matching at-risk youth and shelter dogs together. The youth learn positive communication and interaction with one another through teaching the dogs good manners, social skills and basic commands. This training increases the dogs’ chances of becoming adopted, while it teaches the youth impulsivity-control, mastery of a skill, future orientation and the value of restorative justice.

The evening will offer dinner, wine, raffle, silent auction, live music & entertainment.

Learning about the past..

art, creative, culture, Ireland


Working on a “Vintage Family”  painting and wondering who was she? Her name (that is marked on the photo ) is Josephine Morel from Ireland. This is my husbands side of the family. An old photo late 1800’s? Very early 1900’s? Not sure! This is one of many many of the old pics that I selected to paint.
Of course, I looked up her name and I am pretty sure this Josephine is not currently on Linkedin! 😉
Well going to have to pick my father in laws brain on who she was…….
