JRT pet portrait rock donation

Originally uploaded by tagscats

This piece I just completed as a donation for a jack russell terrier rescue fundraiser, Carolinas Jack Russell Terrier Club, in South Carolina. I have a JRT mix, my dog Gumbo, and I love those little terriers.

I’m happy to help out animal rescues when I can. 🙂

Minnie’s Seinfeld cats

This is the finished piece for my second place winner in my Valentine’s Day raffle that benefited a local feline rescue. This second place winner won a rock portrait and I painted 3 of her cats on this large rock! She calls them her Seinfeld cats, and this is Kramer, Jerry and George! Such cute cats and such fun subjects! Enjoy them Minnie!!

I have a beautiful black cat to paint in oils on canvas for the first place winner, that will be arriving here soon, so stay tuned!

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!

Raffle Reminder!!

February 12, 2009

Yes, I’m posting about this again because, well, it’s important!  Time is running out to enter my charity raffle to benefit the cats of Forgotten Felines and get your chance to win a custom pet portrait!  It’s been tough times for everyone these days, and animal rescues especially have been hard hit.  These rescue folk work so hard for the cats in their care, and remember that every little bit helps. 

You only have until noon on Valentine’s Day to enter, that is when one of my cats will be picking the winner!

I’ve gotten a great response so far, thank you SO much to those who have opened their hearts to help these cats and those who so unselfishly care for them

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.
