Shelter Kitty and Juried Show
After weeks of meaning to get to a local shelter to photograph some animals to contribute to Sheila Tajima and Carrie Jacobsen's blog, "Art for the Animals," I finally went to one today. This is a wonderful way to contribute to the welfare of the animals by making a painting and donating it to the shelter for them to use, perhaps to sell, auction, or donate to potential shelter pet owners. If you're like me, you want to take all the cats or dogs home but of course, we can't. We can, though, perhaps make a difference in this way. I'll see how it works out for this particular shelter. They were very pleasant and the cats were awesome...and very curious!
I was really happy to see that my painting, "Eat at Joe's," was placed in the window of the Scituate Arts Association's charming gallery for their Juried Show! It is a small but lovely gallery in the "downtown" section on a picturesque harbor.
