While I was painting the “Kitty Tree” (Previous Post) at the Humane Society, the director, Bruce, asked if I could paint the words “Meet & Greet Room” on the door of the room where once a person chooses a dog they might like to adopt, they bring them in there to play with and hopefully adopt. The door was in such bad shape that I decided to strip it, and start over. I had this Lime Green Paint which I think goes pretty well with the green stripe in the hallway, I gave it three coats and its as good as new. Then thinking about how I was going to put the words on the door I thought off the “Albert & Vicky” Portrait I had done. I think they look like they are greeting each other, the colors worked well with the color scheme of the room, and its perfect for the room where potential people meet their soon to be pets. My Husband, Kent,  being the brilliant designer he is, put the whole image together in a very fun design. I had the poster laminated and we added Velcro tape to stick it on the door so when it starts looking bad we can pull it off and make a new piece without any damage to the door, pretty smart right, my husband came up with that idea as well, like I said brilliant! I hope these two happy Corgis will greet everyone that comes into this very fun room. Let me know what you think  😉

From December 1, 2009 to January 5, 2010 my Paintings and Giclees will be on exhibition at the Downtown Bank of America in Ocala, Florida.

This is a video of the Reception were you can see the paintings I have on display. The Reception was on Dec. 4th and it was wonderful! Its amazing seeing all of my work in one space.

Many people showed up and the best part was I sold two paintings that day.

Flint Creek Outfitters

I have the honor and opportunity to have five of my Maggie’s Angels dog prints on sale by the dog products, at the new Flint Creek Outfitters in Ocala.

The store is outstanding, full of merchandize that caters to every outdoors man and women’s dream products. They also have high quality dog beds, collars, backpacks, toys and other really cool dog items.

I hope you get a chance to stop by and check out this wonderful store, and if you are like me, you won’t leave empty handed.

Angels in Dog Show Videos

Here is a terrific website hosted by a really sweet and charismatic person name Simone Di Santi. A Road Retraveled has a variety of shows on many different kinds of topics, from Travel to Food to Dog Shows. That’s where I come in. I joined this little social networking site called Twitter, and I have been able to meet some pretty amazing people through it like Simone.

She was getting ready to do a show on “Dog Shows” and asked me if she could use some of my Angels as part of her show. I, of course, loved the idea, and sent her some files and my Angels are now featured in Part 1 & Part 2 of her “Dog Shows”. My Maggie’s Angels images are sprinkled throughout the show and at the end, there is a nice compilation of my paintings & even a photo of me. It turned out really fun and it was great working and getting to know Simone better.

To check out the shows, please click on these two images, they will link you to the videos.

Enjoy!

Belleview High School Presentation

I received this message from Sylvia Richardson;

 

I am a big fan of yours. I first learned about your terrific work when you were featured in Ocala Style Magazine. I teach art at Belleview High School and introduced my students to your delightful work. Some tried to do portraits of their dogs using your style. I was reminded again of your work yesterday when I visited a friend in the emergency room at Munroe Hospital. One of your dog portraits hung read more

Bark About Art Show 2007

    The third Bark About Art Show was the biggest yet. So many people showed up with their dogs ready to view demonstrations, take in the art and even buy it! 

   This year, Maggie’s Angels showcased the product line offered on the Merchandise link on my website. There you can see each of the portraits that I’ve done and their product lines. It is exciting for me to offer all these products to my clients and be able to sell them around the world in the cafepress marketplace.

   My sisters Maru and Hilda came out again this year to help me out. I really can’t do it without them, because when I am speaking to my clients they are selling my products. I sold a ton of merchandise as well as getting many Commissions that day. Another terrific show benefiting the Marion Cultural Alliance and the Humane Society of Marion County!

  

 

Bark About Art 2006

The second annual Marion Cultural Alliance and Marion County Humane Society“Bark About Art Show was a huge success for Maggie’s Angels. Storms were predicted but held off and the crowds turned out again for this great event. Many artist and vendors showed off what they had as pet owners showed off their little Angels some even in outfits and strollers, a great sight to see. 

   Maggie’s Angels have grown to offer Original Art, Custom Pet Portraits, and many new items such as 8″ square & 12″ square prints, Jewelry, Keychains, and Bookmarks. My two Sisters, Maru to my left and Hilda to my right, came out to help me sell, and did a FANTASTIC Job! I Thank them so much for making it super fun and very successful, could not do it without you girls!!!!

   I also wanted to Thank Ocala Style, once again, for featuring my Bulldog on the cover of the January issue and the article, I’ve received many Commissions due to that article. Barking good time had by all!
