'Tis better to give than receive...

"Ruby"
10x8 oil on canvas

especially during this season isn't it? This is Ruby, a beautiful pup from the Exeter Shelter of Rhode Island. I am donating this painting to have the folks at the shelter do what they will with it. Other shelters and rescues have auctioned the paintings, given them to volunteers or people who have donated funds to the shelter or to just brighten up their place. I wish everyone a very Happy Holiday and a healthful New Year.
