‘Trash To Treasure’ Painting Series

I used this term ‘Trash to Treasure’ with the very first Save A Face painting because I wanted to demonstrate how something one person views as ‘trash’ is another’s treasure.  The pretty black and white kitty Will and his siblings were dumped into a trash can less than 24 hours old.  They were found and cared for by Maria and Don Appleby of Champaign, IL .    Maria and Don have made their home a haven for many rescued animals over the years and are a wonderful advocate for animals in need.  I painted a dog owned and loved by Maria and Don after reading a touching story written by Maria, who is an aspiring writer.    The story was titled The Last Ride and described the last ride to the vet’s to do what was necessary but oh so hard!  She reflected over the past years with this sweet dog that was adopted at the humane society and how she had added so much to their life.

Will, Toby and Andy very much fit the description of Trash to Treasure!  These kitties, along with their thoughtful owners have been a blessing to so many!  A true Treasure!

    Sue Steiner is great! She has painted some of my sanctuary’s animals and helped raise funds for us. This is a great cause! Catherine Ritlaw, Journey’s End Ranch http://www.jersanctuary.org
