Sunbeam and Another "Help Japan" Painting ~~ Painting a Dog a Day

"Sunbeam", 4" x 6", portrait of a sunbathing Maltese, done in Golden Open and Heavy Body acrylics on a Raymar panel, available for $239 (10% of the sale of this painting will go to my local shelter).

After last night's dumping of snow and ice on my newly green world, I needed to pretend I was someplace warm. This painting transported me to a warmer climate, a comfy chair, and a sweaty glass of iced tea.

Unfortunately, in a matter of minutes, I'll be transported back to the real world, driving the track carpool, shutting several to drum line practice, and making a run to the library. Which means I'll have to go scrape the inch of ice off my vehicle.

Which means this evening I'll reward myself with an Irish Coffee in lieu of that tea.

Meanwhile, last night I added a second painting to the "Help Japan" Challenge - a 8" x 6" pet portrait, done to your specifications. If you were thinking about setting up a commission, please take advantage of this opportunity to have 100% of your purchase go to Save the Children.

There's over 270 pieces of art, some with opening bids of $9, which means there is a price point for everyone. I've got my eye on a couple paintings myself......

Please feel free to share the auction link with friends and family, too. The more we share, the more others benefit.

Thanks in advance for your compassion and support,

"Help Japan"

This week's Daily Paintworks challenge, "Help Japan," is a fundraiser for the survivors of the Japanese earthquake.

Over $11,500 has already been raised by the participating artists!

Visit the event page to browse the artwork. Paintings are being added all week long.

And you can go directly to the pet portrait auction here.

100% of the sale price of each of my paintings will be donated to Save the Children.

Thanks so much.
