Paint Party Friday: A Donkey
Well, I only got one June guy done, and then I had a bunch of animals to do, so I did not get any more finished, but here is "Donkey." He is being donated to the auction at the Pasadena Chalk Festival. If you happen to live in Pasadena, there will be lots of 12 x 12 paintings starting at $20 and great chalk art. My daughter and her family do at least two squares every year! http://www.pasadenachalkfestival.com/
I am also working on a horse in watercolor and
I finished Dr. Dre, a goat, for another charity auction.
9 x 12 Acrylic on Canvas board: "Dr Dre" (now Dr. McGuffin) is a 3 year old Nigerian Dwarf wether, as friendly and social as he is beautiful. A former resident at New Moon Farm goat Rescue in Monroe, Washington. He has found his forever home!
Don't miss the Goatalympics!!! The Goatalympics is not your typical livestock event! Rather than focus on conformation and production, as seen at a typical County Fair, the Goatalympics is all about having fun with pet goats. It’s a chance for people to show off their ruminants’ skills, with events ranging from obstacle courses and races to costume and stall decorating contests. In addition to the goat contests, there will be a mega-raffle, a silent auction and educational materials about goats. Of course, there will be adorable, adoptable goats for people to meet. Though only in it’s third year, we expect the 2013 Goatalympics to be bigger and better than ever! Visit goatalympics.org for more info.
"As a 501(c)3 organization, New Moon Farm receives no state or federal funding. Our work is supported solely by individual donors like you. And every little bit helps. It costs approximately $25 a month to provide the basic care of hay, grain, bedding, vaccinations, deworming, and hoof care for one goat. For goats who come to us with injuries or health problems that require veterinary care, the cost increases significantly. Add to that cost of maintaining the facilities, property taxes, and insurance. As a nonprofit, New Moon Farm relies on the tax-deductible monetary and in-kind donations of our supporters for everything. From deworming medications to hoof trimmers, from treats to blankets, from manure rakes to wheelbarrows, we simply cannot do the work that we do without your help."
