Don’t miss our early auction of original art to help Tripawds everywhere. Here’s what you can win for your pawliday shopping list:
Item 1: “Snowy Days” by Schultz and Wilhelmina
Are you ready for winter? These two painting dogs sure are! Schultz and his sister Wilhelmin are so excited they couldn’t wait to share their enthusiasm by collaborating on a brand new, one-of-a-kind painting.
This beautiful 8×8 canvas artwork was created using a snowflake stencil, designed by their mama Natasha.
- First, the stencil was overlaid onto the blank canvas so the background could be painted. Once the colours were exactly as they imagined, Natasha lifted the stencil to reval a blank area for step two of the painting, the actual snowflake.
- Next, the amazing duo then added their signature style to the inner part of the canvas, and the result is what you see here.
Ready to add this beautiful gem to your dog art collection?
Item 2: “Sparkle & Shine” by Nellie and Schultz
What a collaboration for your collection! This international team partnered up to create a one-of-a-kind original masterpiece to brighten your winter days.
With creative direction from mama Natasha, the artwork design was kicked off with Schultz painting the lovely background in his Toronto, Canada studio.
Once finished, Natasha shipped it to Tripawds Spokesdog Nellie in Alaska, where she added her signature painting style (and a little slobber for good measure) to the lovely snowflake in the middle.
And now, this painting can be yours!
Item 3: “Bad Art” by Codie Rae Shepherd
This item is anything but bad! It’s a new offering to our dog art auction, and we think you are going to love it. Win a custom, truly original artwork commissioned just for you, in honor of your amazing animal.
What is a “Bad Art” Portrait, You Ask?
Our long-time member Codie Rae Shepherd recently participated in a “Bad Art” fundraiser for her local animal shelter. She had so much fun making bad art that she reached out to Tripawds to offer her talent to help raise funds for Tripawds!
“Bad Art” is created when a volunteer creates a custom portrait based on an individual animal’s personality. Using any medium they wish, from ink and paper, to canvas and crayon, the artist creates an original piece of art to help raise funds for a great cause, like Tripawds Foundation!
This item will be a digital masterpiece is based on a photo of your pet, and any information you want to provide about their likes, dislikes, joys, favorite foods, locations, whatever you want to share.
Thanks to the artists and their humans for making our third auction another incredible fundraiser!
