The Paws for Charity Book - A Look Inside!

I am so excited that my copy of The Paws for Charity Art Book just arrived!

Emmitt and I are so honored to be a part of this wonderful project.

"The Paws For Charity Art Book Project is a unique fundraiser that celebrates our love of pets, and raises funds for a human cause.

The 2010 Art Book is a compilation of artwork and photography of dogs and cats submitted by 65 artists and photographers in 7 countries.

All funds raised from the sale of these books are donated to The Avon Foundation Breast Cancer Crusade, a registered charity with programs in over 50 countries.
This charity also carries the Humane Charity Seal of Approval."

Details about Paws For Charity are available on their blog.

Emmitt and I are honored to have our work featured in this wonderful post.
The extra fun part is that our dear friends, Linda and Maisie are also featured artists in the book. Please check out her page here!

T-shirts, greeting cards, and wall calendars are available with all proceeds donated to breast cancer charity.

If you are on Facebook, please become a Fan of The 2010 Paws for Charity Art Book Project.

Emmitt and I contributed one of our favorite images for the book - The Kiss.

The Paws for Charity Art Book is available as a:
  • softcover,
  • hardcover w/dust jacket (shown) or
  • hardcover w/image wrap.

If you would like to see a preview of the first 15 pages or purchase your own copy, please click here.

I love connecting to others through the power of sharing art.

Simply Magical!

That's wonderful, Melissa! "The Kiss" is my favorite of your paintings as well. I know it's not, but in my mind I'm convinced that those two pugs are Winston and Clementine ;)
