Art for Shelter Animals
I recently completed a series of three pet portraits for the Sullivan County SPCA, in Rock Hill, NY, as part of the Art for Shelter Animals Project. The portraits were donated to the animal shelter to be given as gifts to people who adopt the animals.

I first learned of the Art for Shelter Animals Project from Carrie Jacobson, who is a writer and a painter and is also a member of the Wallkill River School. The Project is a great way for artists to help support animal shelters, through their art, and to increase awareness of the plight of so many animals.
