Sometimes art goes beyond simply the aesthetic and instead becomes a salve that helps us heal our wounds and reminds us to cherish what we have. For those at the Hull County Police Department, my most recent portrait speaks to the powerful bond between human and dog and their commitment to each other as a unit.
With every great dog there are great owners who put love and devotion into their animals.This is a story and dedication not only to Rudy, a German Shepherd with the North Alabama Search and Rescue team, but also his parents, Len and Terri.
I've decided to take on a huge challenge: paint 30 paintings in 30 days of rescue animals! I made the call out to my Facebook followers last week and was overwhelmed with the responses! I'm so blessed to have such awesome supporters!!!
Today I started with Gwennie. I hope you enjoy the video! If you like the paintings, they are being auctioned them off and a portion of the sales will go to help the Greater Huntsville Humane Society.
Join me on Facebook to see live demos and keep up to date on future call for muses.
County Sheriff’s Deputy Brandon Finley and his K9 partner Furax spent three years patrolling and protecting the streets and citizens of Tate County, Mississippi. Furax is a trained Narcotics and Bite Belgian Malinois with a personality and love for his job that only Brandon could handle. One night in February 2011 Brandon was shot in the head while off duty. Brandon survived this tragedy but that was the beginning of a shift in both Brandon and Furax's lives that would take 5 years before the two would be back together again

Contract Working Dog Zorro Served 7 years in Afghanistan and came back to the U.S. in 2014 thanks to the donations from Mission K9 Rescue and their supporters (contract working dogs are not owned by the U.S. Military, therefore the companies that own the dogs do not always bring them back to the U.S., it is with your help and Mission K9 Rescue that these dogs are able to retire rather than expire, to donate to bring more of these heroes home, please visit Mission K9 Rescue).

Nero, a Belgian Malinois, who is a C.W.D. (Contract Working Dog) who served our country without fail for 7 years in Afghanistan. He was given no breaks, limited medical care and tirelessly assisted with saving lives by detecting mines while on patrol.
Nero worked with multiple handlers, 15 hours a day or more, 7 days a week, 365 days a year for 7 years. Nero was so good at his job that the Afghan's quickly became familiar with Nero and his ability to search out the mines while on patrol that they put a bounty on his head. Thankfully, they failed and Nero lived long enough for retirement with Judie.
Nero's first several months back in the states were a time for recovery and healing from injuries sustained while in Afghanistan. When he first landed in July of 2014 it became obvious to Louisa from Mission K9 Rescue that Nero, at 47 pounds, and a bloating stomach he needed surgery to relieve his bloating stomach immediately, a condition called Gastric Dilation Volvulus.
