This has been a GREAT project. In June of 2017 the owner of ‘Natural Pet Essentials’ in Charlottesville, Virginia asked if I would be interest in helping her with an event at her store.

We didn’t know how many dogs to expect, but I was non-stop busy from before 10am until about 1pm. We got some great dog print artwork. I had the backgrounds prepared before arriving and dog owners picked out their board and chose the colors they wanted as well as the preferred bug embellishment.
I’m so glad I had the opportunity to try the concept out ahead of time on my Yorkshire Terrier, Desiree. Little did I know she would no longer be with me after July.
This is only a little off topic, but it was the Wine and Design class at Pet Essentials where I painted Desiree and met Kim, the owner of Pet Essentials.
This is my little Desiree – She’s so beautiful!
The Paw Print Project was so much fun and so successful that I took it on the road and was able to arrange another workshop in late August on National Dog Day at The Arts Center in Orange
