Auctions to support the current Okey’s Promise Project!

On my main website, I create a blogpost every year at New Year’s that is a vision board. My first priority for this year’s vision board post is to, “Create my third Okey’s Promise project – a mural on a building in Barberton, OH, that educates and inspires people around the world to take action against animal abuse, child abuse and domestic violence.”

In order to create the mural, I need to raise money for the costs involved. I have been lucky to have Okey’s Promise Keepers to assist with the funding of my previous projects, and I have had some very special Promise Keepers contributing to the current project as well. I have also done some special promotional auctions where people can bid on artworks and the winning bids go towards the campaign.

I am going to, again, do auctions throughout January to aid the campaign. You can follow the auctions at BZTAT Studios or on the Okey’s Promise Facebook page. Watch for art auctions all month, starting with a kick-off auction tomorrow.

Some artworks will be new, and some will be works from previous auctions that did not sell. Like the drawing above of Okey. Watch for postings tomorrow about the first auction. You might get some great art for a steal!

If you would like to contribute to the campaign regardless of the auctions, you can do so by clicking on the donate button below. Thanks for any support that you can offer!

Okey’s October: Art, Encouraging Thoughts, and Auctions!

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!
