Dog Paintings to benefit shelter rescue dogs

Meet Max!  This adorable pit bull has been in the local shelter for over 2 years - the majority of his life.  He is sweet and would really love to have a home and family of his own.  I have painted this picture of him to donate to the Humane Society of Schuyler County for the auction at the Mardi Gras party they are hosting this Saturday (Feb. 9) from 6-11pm in Watkins Glen, NY.  It will be a fun event with music, food, wine tastings, festivities and great stuff to be auctioned to raise funds for Max, the other shelter dogs, and the much needed new shelter building.  Click to learn more: HSSC Mardi Gras Celebration

Max's painting is 9" x 12" acrylic on canvas panel mounted in a black floater frame.  I fell in love with him while painting his picture and have high hopes that this donation will not only benefit the shelter in a big way but may also help Max find his forever home.  Since he is such a cutie I decided to promote his cause with a second painting which will also raise funds to benefit HSSC.  The second painting, also acrylic on canvas panel, is 8" x 10" in a black frame and is titled:  Make Someone Happy.  As I worked on his beautiful smile I thought about the song - "Make someone happy.  Make just one someone happy.  And you will be happy, too."  Surely that sums up what a dog gives to us when we give him a happy home.  You are repaid 1000 fold.  So this second painting is in honor of Max's happy spirit despite his hard times.  Please help by supporting HSSC.  Max thanks you!
