#30paintingsin30days Day 17: Late Winter Sunbath

I’d always wanted to paint this photo of my orange boy, Allegro. I took the photo in 1993 or 1994, and it’s been on my mind all this time. I wanted not so much to paint a portrait of Allegro as I wanted to capture that moment that was so much Allegro in his quiet, […]

Remembering a Special Rescue, and Make a Donation With Every Purchase

It’s hard to believe it’s three years since our foster Kennedy joined us as brother, and left us all too soon. He’d been reported having seizures in a driveway in Kennedy Township, hence his name, on a sunny 90+ degree day, June 14, 2014. He was rescued by Tarra and Margo, and because I’ve handled […]

Votives Made from Repurposed Jars
