huge solo show at the Humane Society...

the first time the artdogs are in public!!! i had lots of feedback but didn't sell any. and i even bid on my cardinal dog to keep him, so i paid 27.50 right after finishing him for the show. i want to submit them to an artdoll magazine and maybe hit the radar through that outlet for their quality and craft.

i watched a woman reading this story about a dog to five young children. this is exactly what i had planned for this artwork which were not for sale. i want the pieces to be educational and to open a dialogue.

i sold 4 12x12 prints and one 10x10 print!! $75% went to the Humane Society!!! this was great since they are Humane Society animals!

the show was overall a big success for this town. we made $402 for the shelter and i made $151 so i think it was well worth it. we had about 100 people show up which was not as many as i wanted to see. :( but i can say there were a lot of other things to do that night and we were outside of town. the shelter didn't have to pay for anything which was a bonus, we got all things donated or we paid for them ourselves between a few of us who got behind this show... we plan to get the art students at the high schools involved next show. parents and family of kids will come out in droves!!!! and hopefully have checkbooks out and ready. :)

i was treated to the zoo two weekends ago. the only place i visited was the snake house. my favorite. we left after that. i saw what i wanted and the kids were annoying. :) (which is your favorite?)

donate to this charity!!!

i encourage ALL artists to make a piece of art for http://www.aplacetobark.com/ it is such a great cause and the woman running the shelter/rescue does wonders with little money. donations of artwork would go a long way for the dogs she takes care of!

anyone who knows me knows i fight for the fair treatment of all animals. crap our poor intern at work had no idea what he was asking for when i saw him about to squash a random bug OUTSIDE during one of our stories recently... i was like 'What the hell are you doing?" as i see him getting ready to mush it...and he says, "killin a bug" to which i threatened him a long walk the hour back to the station if he remotely followed through with his intentions. WTF? he was outside -in the bugs space? (ok so i am not perfect, i do kill Brown Recluse spiders which we have an abundance of in our house this season. grrrr)

i have been feeling very creative lately and just made these two fiber pieces this weekend. i felt recharged mentally hammering rusty nails into fabric -to the ground. i have zero idea what i am doing with these fiber pieces but it makes me healthy again. to make art is very therapeutic, so that is why i encourage you to donate a piece of art to the above link. it will help you AND the dogs.

a few updates...

the two i have recently finished are the fairydog and pooldog. photos are as follows. all of their clothes are pieced together with thrift store bought clothing i then cut up and sew directly onto the dog.

she is hand-stitched and is sporting fancy wings.

two more victims on the left..... bwahahaha

pooldog is making sure he doesn't get a sunburn with his lotion and he thinks safety first with his stylish arm floaties.

the girl to the left photo'd here is a donation for a great rescue run by a woman that lives for the dogs she saves. http://www.aplacetobark.com/ check her website out. if you are an artist please make something for her to sell to generate money for her "cause". here are some photos of the dog i made her, charitydog.

she is sporting some sweet chuck taylor like shoes!!!
