The Studio is sponsoring a really fun event for the Humane Society of Warren County – PAWCASSO. When Lavenda Denney approached me last year about her idea for this project she knew she had me at art and rescue pets. She wanted to have the available animals at the shelter “paint” works of art to sell at a show at the arts council. I loved the idea and agreed to sponsor it right away but also suggested we take it a little further by offering private lessons for people who already have pets. So The Studio provided 10 sessions to people who would pre-purchase a large (18″ x 24″) painting with their pets. The pets had a private lesson with me and we created the large work of art. And it’s no surprise that those sold out. We have had so much fun with this project. And tonight is the reception from 6-9 pm at The Blue Ridge Arts Council at 405 E Main St. You don’t want to miss it! You have to see this art and these wonderful small works are for sale. Please come. Here are some of the painters at their session. LOL!

I had a really fun Paint Party yesterday with a wonderful group of ladies that come out from Northern Virginia to paint every few months. They are all delightful and we have lots of laughs as we paint beautiful pets. Great work ladies. Can’t wait till April.
Rumor came out of retirement to win Westminster last night in New York City. We went to the show last year and saw Rumor in person then. Here are some shots of her from last year’s show. Congrats on the comeback Rumor!
I worked this up yesterday for the 1st Saturday Paint Party on March 4th. I love it, of course. I’m thinking many of you will too. If you want to paint this one, click here to register.

Here is the second group of Pet Portraits that we did this weekend. Everyone loves their pets..and why not?! Look at how cute they are….
Plaza Pet Clinic staff came to paint Pet Portraits yesterday…..and paint they did! Look at their fabulous paintings. All wonderful and I can’t wait to see Leah’s tall canvas when she finishes it up. She’s a regular student at The Studio so she chose a little more challenging canvas. I know it will be great too!
I am having a hard time getting my blog post done this morning. Wonder why? Ordo (pictured here) and his brother Luke and one of their people, Jen, are staying with us this week. I may have more help than I need getting computer work done. LOL
