This portrait has reached that point where, if I had an assistant, that person would beat me over the head and tell me to stop. So I’m going to stop now.

The next step is to deliver the painting to the Hooved Animal Humane Society in Woodstock, IL. In case you missed a previous blog, the idea behind some of my paintings is to create and then donate a painting of one of their rescued horses to a rescue organization. The idea came from another blog, Art for Shelter Animals (see my sidebar for a link). Any reputable shelter is a worthy candidate, whether it be horses, dogs, cats, or farm animals. Since the shelter receives the art copyright-free, they can use it for fundraising by creating merchandise from it, or holding an auction, or selling it to whoever adopts the animal. Or whatever other creative money-raising ideas they can come up with. I, in turn, get credit as the artist. A win-win for everybody!

    Thanks Sue. I hope they have the same opinion. They’ve been really enthusiastic so far, so I’m pretty sure when they see the actual work they’ll like it.
