Pet Portraits, Wildlife Art, Donations

A few bits of news for you all art-wise. I've entered my leopard wildlife art portrait into an online art competition and I need you all to vote for me, I'll sort the details out and post that in a couple of days time as the voting hasn't actually began yet so please help me out!
Also I've donated a few gift certificates to animal rescue organisations lately, and I have received an email from Elspeth at Hope Rescue to let me know they had raised a magnificent sum of over £2100 for their organisation which is fantastic in the current financial climate. Please visit the site www.hoperescue.org.uk if you can offer any help but also look to see the wonderful work they do. I'm awaiting images for this portrait but as yet I'm not sure if it will be a people or pets!
Another charity I donated to was www.fourpawsanimalrescue.org.uk Registered charity 1117893©2007 Four Paws Animal Rescue (South Wales) and I am looking forward to receiving the photos of the catagory winner of 'the handsomest hound'.
Please take the time to visit both of these websites as they do wonderful work, as you all know I have lots of rescue pets and animals, ranging from chickens to rabbits to dogs, but as my Mum says 'you can't rescue them all my love' so this is just a little something else I can do to help those poor little fluffy and feathery things that don't have a forever home yet.
And I've now received the proofs of my leopard wildlife painting, I decided to go to a professional printers who are very green and environmentally friendly and I'm so pleased with the results so as you all draw baited breath, prints will be available very soon!
Also I have some not too good news from the guinea pig and rabbit shed, poor Pickle the guinea pig is now very poorly, the vet treated him last week for cystitus and he did perk up a little but today he ahd to have a emergency trip to see the vet again and is now back on a very long course of antibiotics in the hope he will pick up. I took a trip to the supermarket, quite a distance to buy him all his favourite treats, cabbage, carrots, mini sweetcorn, french beans and cheerios so hopefully he's having a nibble on them now as I've tucked him into his little bed for the night. Fingers crossed he's perked up by tomorrow.

If you like my work please take the time to leave me a comment or become a follower (see bottom of page). If you would like to win a pet portrait of your dog, cat, horse or any other pet please see my new competition. It costs nothing to enter, all you require is internet access.
If you are interested in commissioning me please visit my pet portrait artist website or my wildlife artist website
Thanks for visiting!

Hi Gail, Hi Leslie, yes Pickle is looking a little happier today apart from when I give him his medicine, which of course we all know tastes flippin' yuk!
