A New Leash On Life For Some Lucky Boxers

We received another nice story and a beautiful painting from Evelyn McCorristin Peters tonight. Last October she sent us a picture of  Sampson , a portrait created for the Florida Boxer Rescue. This year, the organization contacted her to ask for a painting for their annual "Art of Rescue" fund raising event.  Evelyn came up with the theme, "A New Leash on Life" for this year's event and created this image which will be on all their advertising materials.
Evelyn writes; "This is the finished work with the advertising poster. There has already been a lot of buzz about purchasing the painting which will be available during the auction. We also decided to offer giclee prints and prints on paper so all could find a price point they were comfortable with and could still help the rescue."
Thanks so much for sharing your story Evelyn. I'm sure the fund raiser will be a great success!

Tammy Got A Home

I just got this lovely painting of Tammy from Liz Pearson this morning. This Shepherd mix was found on the streets. Nothing much is known about her, but apparently she has the sweetest disposition and just loves people. A nice ending to Tammy's story is that she was adopted a week ago. Thanks for participating Liz. Keep up the good work!
