The art show I am participating in is the Harding Academy show . Come see me if you are in the area.

I took the photo I used as a reference for this painting the day after the tornados ravaged across my state and others. This beautiful dog was waiting for his owner in the back of a truck. I equate the look on his face to the resolve the folks across the southern states are showing now. So many people have lost everything and when interviewed show such courage and faith. We need to do everything we can to help them. I am going to give the proceeds from this painting to the agency that I feel is giving the most back to those suffering from the tornado. I am too busy to make that decision and set anything up now. I have to pack up for a three day art show in Nashville. If you have any good ideas about how I should set up an auction or something, leave a comment or e mail me. This is painted on a 16 x 20" gallery wrap canvas. Tell all your lab loving friends to check it out. I may buy it myself.

He is great Carol! His eyes do tell a story. I am so sad for all the people who have tragically lost everything and some their lives.ReplyDelete
Good luck with the Harding Show. Say hello to my friend and Marilyn Wendling!
What a thoughtful idea, Carol. And a proud and beautiful dog. Best of luck in Nashville!ReplyDelete
Great painting, brush work and the dog's pose waiting faithfully on the edge of the truck for his/her master's return. Love the waving neckerchief. Good Luck in Nashville!ReplyDelete
Now isn't he a handsome one...i am sure this one will not last. Speaking of good looking...love, love, your self portrait for the DPW challenge. Well done girlfriend!ReplyDelete

Beautiful painting Carol! Love the color and big brush strokes, very nice!ReplyDelete
What a gorgeous Lab! I wish you much success and especially fun at your show in Nashville, Carol. Thank you for your generous and kind heart that always seeks to help others too. I appreciate that so much in people.ReplyDelete
Carol- beautiful painting and post. My heart goes out to all the victims also. Very touching. I also love that you are doing the painting for Susan G. Komen and breast cancer- You got me on both counts! That is what it is all about- giving back!ReplyDelete
Wonderful. I want to bid. Don't know how and may not have time to figure it out. Best wishes with the Harding Show. Am curious about the charity you choose in Alabama. Please let me know which you think is most helpful.ReplyDelete
Good luck at your show, Carol! This guy will definitely do well at auction.ReplyDelete
Love it! Can't wait to hear how Harding goes. I was also thinking of auctioning something to raise funds. I bet there are others who would like to as well. Wonder if we could pool a few paintings and our efforts together and publicize a group? We can chat next week when I see you.ReplyDelete
Great painting, Carol. Hope you have a good show.ReplyDelete
