Kindness: All proceeds to the Humane Society of Southern Arizona

July 1, 2011

I LOVE this painting.
It’s called Kindness, and I made it in honor of Paulus’s dog Clay, a huge old yellow rescue mutt with a huge kind heart. We really did put whipped cream on his food to entice him to eat.

Clay died two years ago, and I still miss him.

Clay was terrified of thunder and fireworks.
Once I was bringing groceries into the house in the middle of a thunderstorm. I put some bags down on the kitchen counter  and saw Clay cowering at the booming  thunder, in fear for his life. I tried to comfort him, but there is nothing a human can say to a dog who believes that the apocalypse has really truly arrived.
I had to make one more trip to the truck for one more bag of groceries. When I went back outside, Clay followed me closely out to the truck and back, covering me the whole way.
Brave heart! Clay believed I was in mortal danger, and he was risking his life to protect me from his deepest fear: thunder. I always remembered that about him, that he was willing to risk his life to keep me safe.

Now comes the season of fireworks and thunderous monsoons.
It’s the scariest time of the year for a lot of dogs. It’s common to see them running lost in the street on July 5th, or after big storms. The Humane Society helps reunite them with their people.

I have had this reverse glass painting for sale for $600.
I am ready to sell it and will  donate the entire sale amount to the Humane Society of Southern Arizona, in honor of dear courageous Clay, and of you the buyer.
Since several people said they were interested, I have decided to auction it so it makes the maximum amount for the Humane Society.
Bidding starts at $300. Send me your bid with the contact form here on the site. I will accept payments over time.

It measures 22″ x 17″

Contact me if you’re interested.
