Miniature Art To Help Dogs In Need

"In Honor Of Paloma The Chihuahua" 2008
ACEO 2.5 " by 3.5"
India Ink, some White Acrylic, and Colored Pencil

I often have the opportunity to paint small works of art that benefit animals in need. This particular miniature painting (ACEO) was created to help an old Chihuahua named Paloma. I have found it especially comforting to capture the spirit of an animal in need like this old dog and ultimately raise money ( from the sale of the original miniature painting) to help charities like  Old Dog Haven Rescue.

You can read more about little Paloma here:

Paloma was a "final refuge" dog who spent her last days at Old Dog Haven
Although the original small work of art has sold, I still have many prints available in my Etsy shop and will continue to donate to ODH

Here is a WIP (Work in Progress) slide show of "In Honor of Paloma".

Thank you for taking the time to explain all of the wonderful things that you do. Old Dog Haven was not an organization that I knew of. Thanks to your generosity and beautiful work, I have yet another wonderful organization with animals that I can connect with.

You truly are a good soul and so generous to be so giving of yourself. Thank you for letting us into your world and help understand how you make the world a better place!

Merry Christmas!
