"Siblings," 12" x 14", acrylic on gallery stretched linen, depicting a litter of pit bull puppies, $799. A limited edition (25 only) of giclees on artists paper also available, image approximately 10" x 13", signed in pencil by the artist, $59. Proceeds from the sale of the original and the reproductions will be donated to my local shelter, the Oakland Pet Adoption Center. Inquiries may always come to me.
I am thrilled to share my latest limited edition reproduction, this one extra special because it supports animal welfare efforts.
Here in the US, we are on the cusp of our biggest shopping season ever.
I encourage you to consider original artwork as you begin making gift giving decisions. Local craft and artisan fairs, independently owned shops in your area, and online storefronts are a great starting point for locating original one of a kind gifts. All of my paintings available for purchase are listed on Etsy (returning collectors get 10% off the listed prices).
And when it comes time to send your greetings, consider ordering cards with a meaningful image like your pet's portrait or one of your favorite paintings from the Painting a Dog a Day project (visit my Imagekind shop to learn more about how easily we can coordinate this).
Directly supporting artists and artisans and spending your dollars locally is a gift itself - to the collective creative spirit and to your community's economy.
Finally, this last week I had a client regretfully release three December portrait spots - if you are interested in one, please let me know as soon as possible so that we can begin the necessary planning.
Thanks, as always, for looking at - and sharing - my artwork with your friends and family.
PS Have you gotten your copies of the Dog a Day books? Painting a Dog a Day - the First Year covers 2006-2007, and That's 14 in Dog Years covers 2008. Both titles can be previewed and ordered through the publisher by clicking on the book titles in the preceeding sentence. However, if you would like your copy personalized, you need to order through me. Monday, December 1st, is the final day that I can guarantee holiday delivery for personalized book orders.
