"Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole." – Roger Caras
"Everyone thinks they have the best dog, and none of them are wrong." – W.R. Purche
"The world would be a nicer place if everyone had the ability to love as unconditionally as a dog." - M.K. Clinton
Being a dog owner/lover, I understand how important all pets are. The loss of any pet is challenging. I have created a couple of sympathy greeting cards, one for cats and one for dogs. They are blank inside, so you can write your personal message.
Our dog Buddy is getting a little older and even thou he loves his walks, he sometimes needs a rest break. So instead of letting him decide where to lay down (which could be halfway across a bridge or a road), I now choose a spot that gives me a place to sit. Buddy gets a rest and I get to sketch. Sketches are quick, done in a micron pen and water brush filled with distilled water and india ink, resulting in a nice grey tone.
Starting into my 5th month of creating original greeting cards in support or Humane Society London Middlesex. This month - more dogs, more cats, maybe some rabbits and maybe even a potbelly pig...
Draw every day.... a practice I enjoy and encourage artists to do. Starting in May, I drew human faces daily in my sketchbook. But, one month (31 faces) was enough! Beginning in June, I switched to a daily dog. I had a bundle of greeting cards with a matching envelope and I created an original hand-drawn greeting card of a dog every day for the month of June. Enjoyed it, so I have continued into July. My plan is to sell these greeting cards and give 10% of the retail sales price to Humane Society London & Middlesex. As of yesterday, I have completed 35 original cards and will do today's #dailydog shortly.
