Party Animals Project 2009


Party Pugs
Paper Collage
8 x 8

I am so excited an honored to be involved in another collaborative project this year hosted by the talented Jill Beninato of Sit Stay Smile Photography.

Last year, she hosted Dogs Rule 2008 and this year's project is just as fun and exciting with all of the proceeds to help the shelter, A Place to Bark in TN run by Bernie Berlin.

Each artist is donating an original piece of work to be auctioned off in the Fall and a book will also be produced for purchase.

My submission this year is one of my original collages with a Party Pug theme.

I am so excited to be a part of this project. Several of the artists have already posted about their beautiful submissions. I am inspired by all of the creativity. Here are just a few from Manon, Jill, Linda and Rebecca.

I will post more details about the project in the coming months.

Have a wonderful day everyone!
