There’s a lot of art I work on with a vision of it or a purpose for it. Then there are odd little things I spend hours drawing that I have no idea if they will ever go anywhere. Meaning, will it find its way into a piece one day? (Honestly, It doesn’t have to, because the practice of drawing and designing is still both gratifying and a great investment.)

Sometimes it turns out down the line that these weird little bits are perfect for an image I’m working on. I might look through my digital files and stumble across patterns or images I’d completely forgotten I’d drawn last season or last year, and find something that is just right for including in a new image. Creating my final “paintings” can be like putting a collage together.

Like the pattern on the sofa in the image above. I made that for no reason at all, and it turned out to be just what this feline typist needed to sit on.

Animal_Magnetism_Exhibit“Animal Magnetism: Celebrating the Radiant Spirit of Animals” is an exhibit of art prints by yours truly at the Animal Rescue League (ARL) of Boston. You have until June 3 to stop by and enjoy this colorful celebration of fine furry beings, and while you’re there, you might just find a fabulous new friend to adopt!

This art exhibit features four dogs, four cats and a rather saintly cow. All pieces are for sale, and for each piece sold I am donating 50% of the net profit to the ARL. You get an imaginative and colorful work of art, and the ARL gets extra support for all the work they do on behalf of animals. It’s a win-win.

The Animal Rescue League of Boston is at 100 Chandler Street in Boston’s South End.

Adoption Center hours are:
Monday: by appointment only
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday: 1-7pm
Friday, Saturday: 1-4pm
Sunday: 1-4pm (adoptions only)
Phone: (617) 426-9170

You can also follow the ARL of Boston on Facebook or on Twitter.
