Art Auction and Pet Adoption Event

It's been a while since my last post but things have been hopping in the studio. For the last couple of months most of my time has been devoted to painting 12 - 16" x 20" portraits of dogs and cats who have been taken in by our local animal shelter, HELP the Animals. I've finished 9 of the paintings so far and have less than two weeks to do the last three. I'm starting to get a tad nervous! Partly because a customer needed a rush birthday present and I decided that I could fit it in too.... that's just how I roll. I'm sure it'll all get done, the parts that I'm most concerned about have to do with the actual auction. I'm donating 100% of the proceeds to the shelter and I truly hope that it'll be enough to make a difference. But I have concerns. Will enough people show up? Will they bid on the paintings? Will they bid reasonable amounts for the paintings? Is this whole thing even worth all the time that everyone is putting in? So many what if's, but I have to trust the Universe and just get back to the easel. We'll know on September 7th, until then we'll just keep working on it. So if you are or are going to be in the area we'd love for you to stop by and say hello! The auction is on September 7th from 4-7pm at the Warmglow Candle Co. on I-70 in Centerville, Indiana. There will also be a few dogs up for adoption at the event! You may meet a paintings namesake if they haven't already been adopted by then. Here are a few of the paintings that will be up for auction. (Upper Left: Emma, Upper Right: Willie, Lower Left: Cameo, Lower Right: Pete)
