- They are going to obtain a display case for my paintings in both facilities.
- They are setting up training for staff at both facilities to help sell the art, route the funds to the special needs animals and selection of same for the project.
- They will post prints of the art work by the dog or cat's information near their kennel or housing area.
- They are building a webpage on the project and will feature it as the top story on their monthly newsletter that goes out to over 8,000 supporters.
One question she tentatively asked is if I would be interested in doing a commission for one of the staff members for their own pet. He had seen the work I had already submitted and liked my style. I am absolutely thrilled. I know staff and volunteers are not rolling in the dough so I said I would be happy to do so and only charge half of my regular commission prices.
I will keep you informed as to how things unfold. Hopefully if you're already started and want to explore getting into a deeper relationship with your shelter, you can bring some of these ideas to the staff of your respective shelter.
I will continue to keep you informed about the developments on my end.
