Major Jack Russell Terrier, Impressionist dog

The major was a Jack Russell terrier rescued by True Blue Animal Rescue, and he was the first dog I met on my initial visit to T-bar. A feisty little thing he was, but it was obvious he sincerely wanted a forever home and soon found one. A cute little chap like Major would be adopted quickly, but that is not the case for every dog. Some of them, like Boxer mix Pudding, waited and waited for what seemed like years before she found a permanent home.

The sale of this 4x6 postcard sized oil painting on canvas panel will benefit True Blue Animal Rescue near Brenham in Washington County, Texas. Twenty percent (20%) of the sale price will be donated to T-bar to help other animals who have been rescued from the cruelties of life. It doesn't sound like much, but every small donation from paintings sold adds up to help homeless animals in need.

Art Helping Animals artists have raised $2,776.05 in the last 30 days, and the total raised to date is $36,399.34 ... this amount came through the sale of one painting with one donation at a time.
