"Well, Hello, Gorgeous," 8" x 15", portrait of a mixed breed dog adopted from the Michigan Humane Society by a friend of a friend. Ruby now leads a charmed life, glowing and beautiful from the inside out.
Done in Golden Open Acrylics on Ampersand Gessobord, I shared multiple in process photos inside the Mobile Uploads folder on my studio's Facebook page.
This painting is headed to the Canine Art Guild's "Helping Paws: All Creatures Great and Small" exhibition next month. In this annual show, all the paintings feature animals that were, at one point in their lives, homeless. Proceeds from the sale of all the artwork benefits animal welfare groups around the world, and the People's Choice award goes to animal welfare as well. When Ruby's painting sells, a generous donation will be made to the Michigan Humane Society.
I'll share updates on the exhibition as the show dates approach, but meanwhile, enjoy Ms. Ruby!!
Thanks, as always, for looking at and sharing my artwork,
The Value of Daily Creativity
Tomorrow I'm giving an informal presentation on inviting creativity into your life at ArtCapsule (formerly Margot's Gallery) in Oxford, Michigan.
I'll be talking about the many facets of creativity - not just daily painting - and share some of the wonderful side effects of adding creativity and imagination to your life.
We'll also discuss structuring a regular committment in the most positive way, so that you are ensured success.
Come join us at 7pm at ArtCapsule (on M24, next to Sweet and Savory Bakery). I hope to see you there!
PS For those of you asking, this talk will eventually be published - I'm talking to editors and promise to keep you posted on the when - and where - it runs. Thanks!!
