SALE! also, DawgArt in the Wild



In other news:

So whenever I get photos from clients, customers, or people who happen upon DawgArt out in the world, I always get a little tickled.

Today, I got a link from VCA Alaska Pet Care Animal Hospital to an awesome video. Awesome for two reasons. The first is that you can learn some valuable information about CPR for pets. Awesome also because you can see DawgArt on the walls!

Watch me paint Dancing Nathan's portraits!

Getting excited for the Bald Is Beautiful Dancing Nathan art auction? What's that? You haven't heard about it? First things first.

Meet Nathan!

Dancing Nathan is the Chinese Crested, hairless, dancing dog who brought all sorts of awesome publicity to the rescue who gave him a second chance. See his dance moves here.

And meet DawgArt!

DawgArt is the fine art brand created by Alicia VanNoy Call specializing in brightly colored pet portraits. I LOVE rescued animals, and I love the angels who work in animal rescue. I know their jobs are tough, having to deal with heart-breaking stories every day. I know that after people helping through adoption and awareness, rescues need money. That's where DawgArt comes in! I paint a portrait of a special rescued animal and we offer the painting for auction. Then the proceeds are donated to the rescue to help animals in need.

With a personality as bright as Nathan's, DawgArt and Bald is Beautiful thought my artwork would capture his vivacious spirit.

Here are his paintings, and they were so fun to make. What a personality this guy has!

Each painting is 16x20 inches, acrylic on canvas, We're going to offer both portraits for auction to raise funds for the rescued animals at Bald Is Beautiful. The paintings will be listed over on the DawgArt DailyPaintWorks Gallery. We're going to spend the week telling the world about the auction, before the paintings are available, to get everyone excited.

 Get ready for the auction by seeing how I made both portraits. Click here for the big grin, and here for the profile, or scroll down to see them embedded.

Want to know how you can help? Fans of Nathan and DawgArt, share this blog post to help spread the word. And then stay tuned for links to the auctions. See you soon!
