Great Dog Photos!

I asked my FB fan page to help me select a wonderful dog photo for a very important painting.
Each year the Canine Guild has a art show in October where each member teams up with a rescue and sells a painting with some or all of the proceeds to go to that particular rescue.

I try to support as many rescues as I can, and so many of them have my web page listed
on their web page. So, I decided to open this up as a form of contest. People were asked
to provide a great dog photo for my painting. I have received 150 great photos.
The next step it to have everyone pick a favorite and indicate with a code "PTD" paint this dog.
On Saturday morning I will count up the votes and announce the winner. The winning entry will be painted on a large canvas with acrylic paint. I will enter it in the Canine Art show and try to sell it for a good price.
The winner will chose the rescue of their choice for my 50% donation, and they will be sent a free print of the completed painting.

This has been very fun and quite exciting seeing all the wonderful pictures added to my wall.
I have such supportive fans. I can't wait to see who wins -and to get started on my painting.

If you want to vote - the voting ends Friday night, come see the wonderful photos and pick one
comment "PTD" = paint this dog.

These are the photos we voted on

Over 171 dogs were sent to my page for voting. We had so much fun. People were very supportive of each other and some made new friends. Sharing the photos and the love of animals made everyone who viewed this event so happy. The voting was quite close. And even though we were only allowed one vote, with so many wonderful pictures, it was almost impossible to vote for just one. The voting lasted for a few days. The viewers choice was a little Yorkie. I have painted him, and he will be displayed at the Canine Guild Art Show, in October. He is listed for sale on my Fine Art America web page. 50% of the sale will be donated to the rescue of the owners choice. And she will receive a free print for her participation.

I am pleased with the way this little guy turned out.
