"Fall into Pastels" ... in Ojai!

The Ojai Show is up and running! We had a great opening reception and everything looked great! It's at the Ojai Art Center until the 29th, so if you are in the neighborhood, come on by!

 "Best of Show"
Road Side Design
by Carrie Givens 

What a great place to have a show, right?

This is "Hunter," a Border Collie from the Search Dog Foundation. He was there with his handler Bill Monohan, a Captain from the Los Angeles County Fire Department, because 30% of the proceeds from our sales and 100% of raffle tickets sold, go to the National Search Dog Foundation.  Among other deployments, Hunter and Bill helped bring 12 people to safety in Haiti after the catastrophic earthquake.

A few of our "mini" paintings! Great for gifts and collectors on a budget ... easy to fall in love with these little gems!

and paints his own nature into his pictures.
