Linda Popple found the Port Jervis/Deerpark project through Sheila Tajima's blog, From Forensic to Fine Art.
Linda has not been painting for very long, she writes in her profile, but painting has become the center of her life. Her friends and family are very supportive - and I know how all that feels.
Check out Linda's blog! (http://www.lindapopple.blogspot.com/) - and please, make a painting for the Port Jervis/Deerpark shelter project.
Here's the downlow:
A friend of mine, Susan Miiller (not a typo), has engineered two exhibits open to ASAP painters. They are both intended to benefit the Port Jervis/Deerpark Humane Society, in New York state, near where we used to live. It's a good shelter, and could really use our help.
Here's the website: http://www.pjhumane.org/ . The animals to be painted are at the very bottom of the home page.
First of all, of course, when you finish your piece, please send an image to me or Sheila for posting on the blog!
The first exhibit takes place in the office of Jeff Parker, 156 Pike St., Port Jervis. Parker is a podiatrist and an artist and an animal lover. He has a very nice space to show and sell art. That exhibit goes from July 26-Sept. 10.
Then, the work will move to the Deerpark Museum, for a one-day show on Sept. 18. Anyone who is in the area is invited to come and demonstrate during the day.
After that, the work will go to the shelter, in the usual way.
As always, you can frame the pieces if you want, but you don't have to. It would be great if you would put a wire on the back for hanging.
Please mail your pieces to:
