Out for a Walk…Posted: February 12, 2010
Excerpted from Karen McClelland:
…chaired an all animal art show for Parklane Gallery, in Kirkland, WA, which was titled “Fur, Feathers & Fins”. This was a huge, huge, (and yet again, huge) job. I have deep respect for folks who do this sort of thing all the time. The October show was great with a lot of funds going to various Pacific Northwest animal rescue groups. I also got to talk to some wonderful animal artists from across the country.
All in all it was a great experience that I wouldn’t have missed, but it did have a downside. During those several months I hardly got any painting done! I was so busy working on the show, that I rarely got into my studio. But, one big perk, since there was not prior years winner for the postcard to advertise the show, the gallery said I could use one of my pieces. It was a wonderful extra for my volunteering all that time to do the show. The rescue groups involved sent out thousands of that postcard. And needless to say that painting sold! LOL. The postcard…
