I am SO Appreciative!

September 6, 2010 Leave a comment

The last several months I have had the pleasure of seeing not only progress in the health and physical condition of my rescue horses but also am seeing major improvements in their emotional well being.  I can see they feel good and are happy.  The other thing these horses have done for me is bring some really wonderful people into my life.  I have made friends thru social media which has led to being able to make new friends in person as well!  I have horse friends again!  🙂  I have seen the horses bring a sparkle to some very special  ‘at risk’ kids eyes.  I have met a wonderful local horse trainer who is kind and knowledgeable and good with the horses.  I have friends across the country and even over seas who are helping promote Save A Face.  People are bidding on the artwork.  I am getting donations from other artists.  This is all so very touching!  We have passed the 500.00 mark for donations collected from eBay sales.  I know the rescues and therapy programs appreciate what all of you are doing.  Amazing how what might on the surface appear to be only about the animals is really good for the people too!  This makes me happy because I am not one of those animal rescue people who don’t ‘like’ people.  I would probably be rescuing people (babies and kids for sure!!!) if it wasn’t so much more complicated!  I like to think though now that in a way this people rescuing is happening too starting with me.

My daughter left for college and it is a very exciting, happy time but so bittersweet too.  I have braced for this time hoping I would handle the transition well.  I knew my daughter would do wonderful!  🙂  So I appreciate how  this project has brought a new focus and people to my life.

I wanted to share some photos of the horses taken today.

The Rescues Started Receiving Their Donation Checks!!

August 30, 2010 3 comments

Save a Face artwork is sold by way of ebay auctions thru their Giving Works program.  MissionFish collects the donations and distributes it to the rescues.  One of the policies is to hold the funds for 45 days in case of a dispute or refund.  So the wait seemed endless for the rescues to get their money.  With a new program it is important to gain people’s trust and confidence so I was anxious to get thru this waiting period imposed by MissionFish and eBay so everyone knew I was legit and serious about this!   The rescues got their donations and will continue to get more as the artwork has been steadily selling.  Thank you!  This is one of those things that just feels good to do!  Lots of win-win-win scenarios in this as the rescues get exposure and donations, the animals in need benefit, I have a chance to get my art out to people that may not have seen it otherwise and I am staying in the black so I can continue doing more of the same.   To date Save A Face has collected over $500.00 for various rescues since I started this in June.   Maybe that’s not breaking any records but I also know that the money has been very much appreciated and as I see it- this is just the beginning.

I have some new work going up this week…. I see though I need a dog or other kind of animal to even things out a bit!  As always I appreciate it when share deserving rescues, rescue animal photos and tell others about us.  Here’s some ways to help if you like what I am doing:  (besides buy artwork)  🙂

comment here

suggest a rescue so I can add them to my link page and possibly do future artwork to benefit them

post photos of animals on our facebook wall

invite friends to the blog, twitter or facebook accounts

share rescue stories on our facebook wall or here

share the eBay links on your blogs or social media accounts

Nominate your favorite rescue and rescue animal to be a future painting

And remind people the art is in all price points– quite reasonable for original art.  I sell it my artwork for much more out of my studio or when I do commissions.

I also am offering prints and cards now too.  The ACEOs haven’t really caught on much and to be honest I don’t like working that small.   I do like the chunky gallery wrapped canvas pieces that are 5 x 5 up to 8 x 8.  They make a nice wall grouping or can be used on a table or shelf.

So let’s keep this rolling!!  Thank you for your help and support!
