On October 30, we will be celebrating Okey’s “Gotcha Day,” the day that she was rescued from that infamous parking lot! To celebrate, and to raise funds for the Okey’s Promise: Celebrating the Human – Animal Bond project, I am going to create an artwork every day in October, and post it for auction on my main website, BZTAT Studios. Each artwork will be accompanied by an encouraging “Thought for the Day”.
I hope that you will check out the auctions and bid if you like. Or just enjoy the artwork! Everyone who bids, however, will be entered into a contest for a free artwork at the end of the month. All proceeds from the auctions will go towards the Okey’s Promise: Celebrating the Human – Animal Bond project.
The drawing above is the first piece available for auction. You can learn more about it here if you’d like to check it out.
It has been an amazing year with Okey as she has overcome challenges and begun to trust again. She is still skittish, but she grows more trusting every day. I spent much of the day in bed today nursing a cold, and she was with me the whole time, snuggling and rubbing her head on my hand. What a resilient little girl she is!
