My mother is amazing.
For the last few years, since she got her ‘Lassie’ collie Fergus, my mum has been going to the local dog park. There’s a regular crowd of dogs there every day, and out of her love for those dogs and the charming little things they do, she’s made this GORGEOUS series of watercolour and ink drawings. The dogs personalities really shine through. The moments she captures are adorable. Her art is honest and rough and I adore it.
She always thinks I’m just being nice when I say her stuff is good, but it IS. Up until today when I sort of shoved her (nicely) into getting a Society6 shop, she was just doing this as a hobby and is still pretty unsure about the whole ‘people will want to buy her stuff’ thing.
So let’s show her that her art is super cool and awesome. Don’t have any money? Reblog! Add a lovely comment! Just sharing this post around will help the cause.
If sales go well, my mum will be offering the original paintings for sale on Etsy. Pretty exciting.
It’s been financially difficult for us lately, and I know I’ve been spamming you guys with MY shop, but give hers a look. It will help us buy food.
Now go tell your mom about it! YOUR MOM WILL LOVE THIS STUFF.
I’ll be posting more of her art over the next few days, so stay tuned!
HEYYY FREE SHIPPING. (through this promo link only!)
