Sheila, what a wonderful picture that captures such a great personality. I can't seem to find the Art for Animals blog this morning. I realize I don't know how to search for blogs on blogspot.com. I would love to read about Misty.

Sheila said...

My apologies. The link is up now. That's what I get for trying to blog before coffee.
hugs!

Great dog portrait Sheila. Looks like a collie mix. I grew up with collies.

Hi Sheila, I've got your Art for Animals on my blog list and am trying to get down to a very special shelter here in Hout Bay, Cape Town to get a pic of my first dog for your marvellous blog! Will get there - you have a dedicated animal lover here! Misty is gorgeous.

I concur, you are doing such wonderful work for a wonderful cause.

And you capture a great range of expression in your portraits.

I love these animal paintings and the concept behind them. I am trying to consider the best way to integrate this into my own routine. I will never forget walking to an animal shelter and seeing all the cats in their cages get up and walk towards the front of the cages as if to say, "pick me, pick me!" I knew I couldn't take them all home but this would be a way that I could help all of them. Great idea, and thanks.
