Mom joins in, too!

Top, Jones; below, Boo. Both are watercolor paintings by Bernadine Lucas (check out her website), donated to the Liberty Humane Society of Jersey City, N.J.
Bernadine is the mother of Ashley Lucas, who donated a wonderful painting to the same shelter a week or so ago. Click here to see that painting!

Ashley Lucas and her mother usually don't do projects together. But, Ashley writes, "I love her work so much I thought this would be a good way to get her involved in a very worthy cause."

So Mom, aka Bernadine Lucas, made these two wonderful paintings for the Liberty Humane Society of Jersey City, N.J.

According to the profile on Bernadine's on-line portfolio site, she's been "drawing, painting and illustrating since I was a child and sharpened my skills while attending the Maryland Institute. I now sell my works at the gallery/fine arts store that I co-own with my husband in historic Downtown Lancaster, PA."

I love these paintings! They have a sweet, whimsical quality that makes me smile, and makes me think of some of the nicer cats I've lived with.

How lucky we are to have such a wonderful mother and daughter artist team find us and join in the project!

  1. These are absolutely adorable! Both mother, Bernadine, and daughter, Ashley must be proud of the art they are producing for saving the animals!
