By Jan Blencowe, to be donated to Protectors of Animals in East Hartford, Conn.
Jan Blencowe lives in Connecticut and is known for her luminous, gentle landscapes. But she paints pets, too, and has donated three of her beautiful portraits to Protectors of Animals, an all-volunteer organization in East Hartford, Conn. The group is holding a fund-raiser on Feb. 13, and Jan's portraits will be a part of it.
Jan has work in the Madison Art Society Members' Show, too, in Madison, Conn. The show is up for the month of February at the Scranton Memorial Library, 801 Boston Post Road in Madison. For more information, check out the Madison Art Society webpage.
I can't go to the opening, because it's on the same night as the opening of "Places & Pets," my show with Carden Holland, at the Lighthouse Gallery in Groton, Conn. Check the website for information and directions. The opening is Friday, Feb. 5 (this Friday), from 5-7 p.m. and you are all invited!
I have to say that I'm pretty happy with my paintings for the show. Dogs and cats and cows, one goat and a few sheep... I'm bringing Art for Shelter Animals paintings, too, and hand-outs. You never know!
