Spot and the Honktapus
6 x 8 inch, oil on linen © 2102 Kathleen Coy
This is the second of my three paintings for the Canine Art Guild's Helping Paw's show. This painting will benefit GALT - the Greyhound Adoption League of Texas, and I cannot say enough good things about this organization. 50% of the proceeds of this painting will go directly to them, to help provide medical care and foster homes for retired, injured, and abused greyhounds.
This is Spot, a GALT rescue who was adopted by his foster momma. Many of you know her as the beauty and brains behind Brother 2 Bother, also known as Bully and Nelson's momma. Spot is blind, but that doesn't seem to slow him down much. He lives a happy and full life now, thanks to GALT and Holly.
It's very easy to bid in these Daily Paintworks auctions - all you have to do is register.
Here are a few work in progress photos. I had so much fun painting the colorful "Honktapus!"
