the humane society in many cities have a yearly auction. I didn't know this until recently when i was trying to find the website and brought up another city, i wish i knew which one for the work and prices raised were breathtaking..if i find the link again i will come post. OUr city has this www.artunleashed.org and i kind of make it my goal and gala event each year. I like that this painting is going for what i want it to go for, especially since it isn't something someone else wanted me to do, but something that is MY idea if you know what i mean. I am sure if you donated a print to one of these events you would bring in a pricey donation!!!!! Last year i had a gallery show and encouraged..ok...begged people to make something for "our" show. I said i would donate mine and this is what i came up with. This year i have announced our SECOND annual Gallery show for february 14 2007. I plan on doing the same thing, making a piece for our art chazzers and then donating it to next year's auction. Theme for this year will be pawprints on my heart.
