This charity subsidizes families whom cannot afford expensive cancer treatments for their furry canine or feline friends. My day job is in Cancer Care and I happen to love furry creatures. So I volunteer to paint something for their silent auction (a co-worker volunteers for them and helps organize the event).
I decided that not only would I volunteer to paint something but maybe (oh I'm a tad crazy) I'd paint one of the animals from their yearly calendar.
I chose Katie. I loved the composition of her picture and her eye was striking.
Off I went home to have many freak outs but the pressure was on. I committed and could not let anyone down.
So here is the finished result and I'm ecstatic. I surprised myself and my capabilities. Sometimes if you push yourself you rise to a new level.
Ladies and Gentlemen......Here is Katie in all her glory!
She was sick in the photo and passed a month before the auction occured. I'm glad I chose her and I'm glad this wonderful charity helped extend her life.
