Practicing for the Pet Project Fundraiser
After the dedicating a lot of time to acrylic painting for a while, I am starting a pen & ink project.
My husband and I recently started volunteering and fostering animals for the Hawaii Humane Society, and although we had to give up on fostering kitties for now we will definitely continue the volunteering at their facility whenever we have the time.
As well as 'donating' our time I wanted to test ways of fundraising as well, and the Special Events coordinators for HHS pointed out that animal portraits are usually a great way to go. I believe the next big event they have for auctioning of big-ticket items is their "Tails and Tuxedos" event early next year - so I'm starting to practice early to show examples that might draw high bids from pet enthusiasts!
If you would be interested in having a hand-drawn portrait of your pet done between now and the end of 2011 ( with part of the price going to help animals at the Hawaii Humane Society) , I'd love to hear from you!
But if you would rather help the Hawaiian Humane Society directly on your own, I'm sure they would appreciate any donation or your spare time for volunteering or fostering...
