This is Rua.
Rua has been a member of our family since November 2014 when she came to us from Vizsla Rescue. Like too many dogs, she had a very difficult start to life. Vizsla Rescue had so much understanding of her needs, and they did absolutely everything they could do to help her in the best way possible that they ensured the moment they collected her was the end of her ever being misunderstood again. They continue to give help and support whenever we need it and I will never be able to stop thanking them from the bottom of my heart for bringing Rua into our lives.
Wherever I can, I help with artwork for the products they sell to raise funds or for online auctions, but as I had been planning to launch a series of prints this year I am selling the first one with 50% profit going directly to Vizsla Rescue. The image is of Juta at Grey Mare’s Tail in Scotland and it really strikes a chord with me as she is so keen and playful, oblivious to the cold water or the stormy day, just intent on watching what’s about to be thrown or maybe the birds flying overhead! I hope it depicts a familiar scene for others too.
The original piece is not for sale, it belongs to Juta’s mum, but prints are available. They are giclee printed onto Hahnemuhle Photorag paper which is textured just like pastel paper. Even as the artist, I find it difficult to tell the original from the prints. They are individually signed and can be gift packaged, framed or mounted as required.
You can take a 10% discount on prints and framing options by signing up to my mailing list. You’ll also receive a monthly newsletter where I share new work and details of any offers or events.
For those of you attending Crufts this year, these prints will be available there too from the Vizsla Rescue stall along with lots of great products in aid of Vizsla Rescue.
