Here’s my piece for the ANIMYSTICS show that is happening at Light Grey Art Lab this Friday! I did one in traditional media this time of some canaries! I’ve been very lucky to have had three canaries in my lifetime, Dean, Hank 1 and Hank 2. Dean was a red factor canary, and a gorgeous pink color, and the Hanks were a bright golden yellow! They were all so wonderful with beautiful songs and such charming, funny personalities!
If you’re in Minneapolis this Friday, you should totally stop by and see all of the amazing artwork! There are over 100 pieces of animal related works on the walls and it looks incredible! Not to mention that a portion of all the sales from the event will go toward three different animal rescues! Mine are going to Homeward Bound Dog Rescue — a local shelter, where my pug mix, Twinkle came from!
Here’s a link to my print! They’re $20 and I’ll be contributing all of my proceeds to the rescue!
The original is also for sale as well! It’s a watercolor, gouache and graphite piece that is 12” x 16”. :)
Thanks for helping me spread the word about the show!

fics that aren’t blatantly bad, just good enough that you get hooked with the plot before you hit all the “no no no they wouldn’t have said that no absolutely not, not that way, not in that tone; why is he doing that; I don’t understand how you could interpret that character this way whether they’re secondary or not; in what universe is that a believable course of action; what is proper dialogue punctuation” like the equivalent of fanfiction speedbumps
