The artist lives near Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada,
and his interests lie in oil painting, and working with varying subjects.

Please Note
Nala and Duke
were painted by Vern Schwarz
on behalf of the Art for the Animals
for the Winnipeg Humane Society
where they are currently sheltered,
and hope to be adopted.
Art for the Animals is a project
where artists paint, illustrate, etc.
an animal in a local animal shelter
of their choice,
then donate it to that shelter.
The shelter can either keep the artwork,
sell it or auction it off. It's their choice.
It's that simple, but the results are profound.
Visit Art for the Animals for more details.
Are you a cat or a dog person?

I sure do like the way that doggie Duke with the beard looks. Paint job well done. I love oil paintng, but it can get messy. What a great job he has done in their eyes. Searching for you could be a great title for both of them. Nala looks like she wants to be cuddled. Thx for sharing.

WHY? said...

Such beautiful paintings. What a great cause, too. I've always wanted to help out at an animal shelter, but I couldn't bear seeing their helpless faces. If I had any artistic abilities, I would join in. I used to be a dog person, but I'm both, now. I don't have any pets right at the moment, but I think I'd like to adopt a cat when I am able. I prefer their independent nature.

*My word verification is curecat! How odd is that?

I'm definitely a dog person, but I have a cat, too. You can read about him here. The entries help to explain why I'm a dog person.

Cute portraits of pets. Nicely done.

I just read your posting "The cat writes a letter," and it is absolutely hysterical. What else is new? Thanks for sharing, Michael, and I'll be reading the rest.

Stephen: Actually these are portraits of animals sheltered at the Winnipeg Humane Society. So, they're not pets yet.

My name is Duke,
And I'm one proud dog...
Got my smiling mug
On a world famous Blog.

My cat pal Nala,
Jealous eyes a glowing green,
Almost flipped over backwards,
When she saw me on the screen.

"What about Me?" she said.
I said "Don't worry."
Cause you're on there too...
