This is my new blog - welcome aboard! I am a watercolor artist from Malabar, Florida. One of my specialties is pet portraits. As you can see from my photo on my facebook page, my Yorkie holds a special place in my heart. She has been with us for 12 years and is extremely spoiled despite the fact that she has 3 "cat brothers"!
So, here is my challenge - I am going to call Yorkie Rescue (Florida) and offer to paint some of their rescue dogs. I will be selling the paintings on-line and will donate 20% of the sale to Yorkie Rescue.
My brother called me from New York last night to remind me of May Day (May 1). When we were kids we got little baskets filled with candy on May Day - and, of course, you remember the May Pole.
Anyway, getting back to my challenge - May seems like a great time to start this project. I will hope to finish 2 small paintings a week and post them on my blog. I am really looking forward to this new venture and hope you will follow my progress!
I have posted my watercolor painting of our Yorkie for you to see!
