It was a clear night and not a creature was stirring… Well, except for Daisy dog, who was happily twitching in her sleep. Daisy was dreaming of all of her adventures sniffing and exploring prairie, mountains, forests and more. In “Daisy Sniffs Out Nature,” Daisy teaches children about the different ecosystems as she recreates each adventure in her dream world.
I am excited to have a painting in this wildlife themed exhibition at Ghostwolf Gallery in Old Town in honor of Endangered Species Day!
“In recognition of Endangered Species Day, Ghostwolf and The Defenders of Wildlife open our second annual WILD! Exhibition. Join us for a fun-filled day including art, poetry, and visits from wild educational animals from local rescues. A portion of show proceeds go to these local charities focused on public education and the preservation of one of our most precious and beloved resources— our wildlife!”
