New Book AND Painting Classes - DawgArt style!

The new art technique instruction book for kids, DIY Dog Portraits, is available for preorder on Amazon! It features eight techniques for capturing your favorite canine's likeness, including a step-by-step DawgArt project! Perfect for the budding artist who loves animals OR for a DawgArt collector.

In other news:

I have had a few people express interest in an online class teaching painting techniques in acrylic. Paint-along classes! If you're one of these people, time to get excited.

Anyone interested in doing an online class with me, please email me at [at] gmail [dot] com. Once I have a list of interested folks, I will move forward with putting together logistics. Share this news with your creative friends!

(For those in the valley -- metro-Phoenix area -- I may be starting in-person classes too. I'll keep you updated on that.)

Fawn the Cow Art Auction Fundraiser for Woodstock Farm Sanctuary

Bidding has started:

Meet Fawn, the sweetie cow from Woodstock Farm Sanctuary, an animal rescue located in Woodstock, New York.

Fawn captured the heart of people everywhere with her beautiful spirit and inspirational story. You can read it here. Or watch this video.

I created an original painting of Fawn, and DawgArt is having an art auction to help raise money for the direct care of the rescued animals at Woodstock Farm Sanctuary. Here's the painting:

It's 16x20 inches, acrylic on canvas. It will arrive wired and ready to hang. 

If you don't have a budget for original art, you can buy a print. Proceeds from the sales of prints will go to Woodstock as well. Here's the link to the DawgArt Etsy shop.

80% of the proceeds will be donated to Woodstock Farm Sanctuary.

What are you waiting for? Run over to eBay and bid now!

And please share to spread the word!
