Melosia


Melosia is an older girl (8 yrs.) who is very laid back, although she looks like she would like to lick you to death...ha! She loves to be petted and is anxiously waiting for a new home. She is currently at D'Arcy's A.R.C. animal rescue center in Winnipeg. If anyone would like to adopt Melosia or purchase this painting, please contact the shelter and they will name the price with all proceeds going to them.

  3. How gorgeous Melosia is. I love that tilt of her head, and that soulful expression in her eyes. And, of course, that tongue:)

    I hope she finds a home, Vern. What an admirable thing you are doing!

  4. Sweet face and great colors for black dogs. How is it going? Are your paintings helping the adoption success? Sure hope so. A kind heart is worth more than gold. Thanks for what you do for homeless animals.

  8. Oh How beautiful she is. Vern you did such a wonderful job on her and I love her tongue, it's so perfect. I'm sure with your representation of her she will get adopted for sure.

  9. Thanks everyone, I'm not sure my paintings directly impact the adoption of these particular animals, but I hope the proceeds help the shelters to continue working as successfully as they possibly can. I am now concentrating on the larger and perhaps older animals that are not adopted as quickly. As we go forward and learn more, I'm sure we will all paint what works best for the greatest benefit. Thanks again for all the great comments, I really do appreciate it.
