I somehow came across artforshelteranimals.blogspot.com (it’s listed in my blogroll) and it seemed like a great combination of marketing effort and direct benefit to charitable groups that I support but don’t have a lot of money to donate to. To sum it up, the artist donates a painting of a shelter or rescue animal directly to the shelter organization, which then owns the work and the copyright to do with as they please–calendars, coffee mugs, notecards, direct sale, T-shirts, whatever. They can use the image over and over again any way they can dream up. So I fired off a few emails today to my favorite horse rescue organizations, and we’ll see if there’s interest. For full details, visit the artforshelteranimals blog. It’s really a neat concept, whether you need to market yourself or not.
Charm, showing off the only braids that will stay in her endless mane.
