To celebrate the holidays and especially how our pets help so many of us during difficult times, our giving campaign included the opportunity to have an Open Studios artist create a personalized pet portrait from a favorite photo. Here are some of the results. Many thanks to our amazing quickdraw (two hours allotted) portrait artists for volunteering their time to help put more fun into fundraising!
