What a wonderful surprise Sandy, Carrie and I had when we opened our email and found a treasure trove of art. Upon reading, an innovative woman named Tracy Greeley organized and convinced local artists to contribute their art to the local shelter. Here's is part of what she wrote:

My name is Tracy Greeley and I own a dog grooming business, Pure Fur Salon in northern Michigan. I was looking for fund raising ideas for our local shelter when I ran across your website.
Great idea - great for the shelter and great for the artists!
Our Missaukee Humane Society is a no-kill shelter located in Lake City, MI that operates without federal, state, county or township funding. A non-profit organization that would cease to exist with donations. It is an impressive facility run by exceptional staff, should you care to visit: http://www.mhs-pets.org/
Anyway, I recently spoke with the area art association and relatives and friends and whoever else I can get to listen and would like to present the attached donated art for your review (and I hope posting to your site).

Of course we will post these! This set of watercolor paintings are the first from Cadillac Michigan artist DorisLea. Tracy said she chose her subjects because of their beauty. You can contact Doris at her email address: DorisAnnLea@aol.com

Thanks to both Doris and Tracy. Stay tuned for several other artists from the Michigan area including one item that has never been featured on our project yet.
