Horse Lovers and Animal Lovers-Please Help

On Sunday morning, Jan. 24th, an old friend of mine and her fiance had a tragic barn fire while they were at church. As a result, they lost all of their 23 horses and three dogs, not to mention a brand new barn and all their tack. I cannot imagine living such a nightmare, as a past horse owner and a lifetime horse lover.

Because of this terrible event, I am donating a portion of my Etsy sales to their cause to help them recover from such a loss. Purchases are always appricaited, but they are in great need at this time to help someone else.

I am aware that the tragadies in Haiti make something like this seem like nothing, but I have donated to that cause and now really need help in assisting this one which hits so close to home for many.

Here is the full story:

(This article is incorrect, it was 23 horses, not 24)

These are just a couple of the beauties who didn't make it out. Maggie and Sugar.

Thank you in advance, these animals were their family and their life.

Rainy January

Sorry, since I started working full time my art has suffered. That and planning a wedding... It's stolen all the time I ever had. Just did a couple portraits of an adorable Pug for someone..this is Penny.
Other than that, my creativeness is at a total standstill. Which I'm not happy about. But that's how it goes sometimes...
