I just got from a meeting with some administrator of our local SPCA. They were enthused with some of the ideas I have in working with them directly to help promote long term yet to be adopted animals and fund raising.

Part of my proposal included the oil paintings I posted earlier this week and the other includes these ACEO (Artist's Card Editions Orginals). My

The two on the bottom, Apollo and Paco are actually residents at the shelter waiting for adoption. If you really awesome ACEOs go to Akiko's or Erika's site. They will really blow you away with their beautiful pieces.

The admin folks said they will be presenting my proposal to the Board Members in their weekly meeting and I hopefully will hear from them later this week! Stay tuned!

Nice sketches Sheila, the lower left one looks like my old dog pepper.

Oh These are lovely, I don't care for pomeranians but yours here is really lovely and a fun little fluff ball.

Neat ACEOs, Sheila. I had been familiar with akiko Watanabe's ACEOs...jaw still on the floor with awe. And Erika's site is way cool. It is really super how this blog business can expose such a wealth of talent. I amended the WTTW site and nominated you and Dominique for head cheerleaders. :-) Goodluck with the pet adoption project.

Good luck with your proposal Sheila. You are great at marketing your work. I need to take a lesson from you.

Sheila, that is a wonderful way of helping out with the organization! I went to an art critique with Judy Mackey today and she mentioned what a great sense of humor you have. I see by the "bad cheese" comment she was right on target!

These little paintings are adorable! I love the edge affect also, kinda like a stamp. Makes me want a collection of them!
