People love to protect animals, right? Why shouldn't we, they are amazing creatures and some people love to harm them.
I have been working on a ton of art lately and this is one of my new paintings here. This painting is called "Make A Splash". This painting is a sun with a heart and a dolphin tail in the middle.
A few months ago I started getting into animal art. Over the past few years I have been trying to figure out how I can do what I love to do -create beautiful art- while making an impact on the world. This new animal art series I am working on has a tentative title of "Love Art".
The secrets out... What do you think of that title for my new series? This love art series is going to consist of suns, hearts, bright colors, and of course, have animals in it.
That's all well in good right? But the title of this article is "How buying art can protect animals around the world". Fair point, don't worry, I am getting to that.
Save the world - buy animal art!
I am really serious about helping animals and making a difference in the world with my art. Which is why I am donating 50% of all sales from my "Love Art" series! That's right, you read that correctly!
That's how buying animal art can protect animals. I am drawn to helping animals with my art like other activists because animals don't have voices and need humans to stand up and help them. Animal artwork differs from artist to artist, but all creations are beautiful in their own way.
Help protect our wildlife by purchasing a painting or drawing or print of your favorite animal.
Here's a post I created on another series I am also working on, but it's focused on helping dogs and cats.

Have a great weekend!
A few weeks ago, I wrote a post about going to Art in the Park in Keene, NH. My mother and I split a booth and have been doing this for about five years now. Every time there is an out door event, weather is always a concern. This year we actually ran into the worst weather we've had in years!
"Art and artists are driven by passion and the emotional ride can veer off to anger and/or depression. We should not forget to enjoy the experience of daily creativity, whatever that may entail." -(Diane Carter)
How do you like this quote above? I like it a lot and if I ever forget to blog or I am too busy creating more work, I will just repost this quote and say, "I am sorry I haven't posted in a while, I was busy creating"! :)
Anyway, we woke up around 4AM to get ready and load up the cars... the rain and humidity was in full force. We were driving by 5AM and the rain subsided, for a bit. Along our drive, we spotted a Great Blue Heron hanging out by this small pond and we both wanted to stop, however, we wanted to allow ourselves enough time to set up our booth.
As we rolled into Keene the skies were unleashing all the rain in the world or so it seemed. It was torrential down pour and a near wash out! The hard core artist were still setting up their tents and art. We on the other hand, decided to "take a break" and went straight to Elm City Bagels for some breakfast and coffee*. * Note: I don't drink coffee, but I do love coffee in porter and stout beers. After about an hour, the rain let up and we decided to set out booth up and prepare for the weekend!
Do to the weather there wasn't too many visitors so the weekend sales weren't too great. I did sell a few prints and I also sold the painting above "Duncan 2". We did get to see a ton of great art and make a few more connections.
All in all the weekend wasn't a complete wash and it's always good to see my moms! We haven't decided if we are going to participate next year, but we all Winter to think about it.

I am working on a kids book and I am looking for more readers prior to selling my book on Amazon.com.
I've been creating art in some form or another all my life and it's what I love to do.
