Cat Charity Raffle Winner Announced!

February 14, 2009

Just announced the winner of my cat charity raffle, details in my LiveJournal blog…

Cats Decide the Winner!

This was so much fun to do, I think it will be an annual event.  Thanks so much to all those who participated in the 2009 inaugural Tag’s Cats Valentine’s Day Raffle!


win a custom pet portrait oil painting!

February 1, 2009

So, it’s no secret it’s been a pretty crappy few months around here in the house of many furries.  I have lost 3 cats and a dog since just before Christmas.  The latest, and really no surprise, was my sweet Bronte just this past Thursday.  It was time, though no less heart-breaking, Bronte had been with me for nearly 17 years.  She came to me a skinny flea-ridden kitten from the local humane society, and grew into a beautiful long-haired tortoiseshell cat, and kept her loving disposition throughout her life.  She loved to be carried around and would rest her paws on my shoulder and purr into my ear.  

I decided to honor her memory by helping other cats in need.  I am running a raffle, the winner of which will receive a custom 16×20 pet portrait oil painting.  The drawing will be held on Valentine’s Day.  All the proceeds will benefit a local feline rescue from whom I have adopted several cats, Forgotten Felines.  Full details regarding the raffle can be found HERE

I’m happy to say since posting about it for the first time yesterday, I have some entrants already.  Hoping for lots more!

Gentle journey, Bronte, my baby girl.  I will always hear you purring in my ear.


Moss Rock Festival this weekend!

November 1, 2008

This afternoon my husband and I drove down to Birmingham AL to set up my displays for the Moss Rock Festival that takes place Saturday and Sunday.  It’s a really fun arts festival, I have done it 2 years previously, and for a new venue, it’s quite impressive!  Lots of fabulous artists, and organized so well!  I can’t say that enough!  It also looks to be a wonderful weekend weather-wise, so, if you are in the Birmingham Alabama area, stop on by!   I have a few new paintings to show as well….a new figure painting which I will picture below, and, a brand-spankin new HUGE elephant painting that, well, I can’t show as I haven’t photographed it yet!  But, I’ll take some pictures tomorrow at the art fest.

Here’s my new figure painting…..hopefully part of a new series, I enjoyed doing this one. 

“Dancer Study I”  8×8 acrylic on ampersand artist panel

I’ll be at this art festival tomorrow!
