|Daisy the Great Dane puppy.|
Ursula and her family do an incredible- selfless act every year. She takes in puppies and dogs, often found within hours of coming into the world or near death in the campo surrounding Antas. She then nurses them to health with the help of friends and family and gets them ready to travel to Germany before the summer heat really kicks in. They go in a convoy of mobile-homes, vans and caravans, already she has at least 30 dogs getting ready to go!!!!!!! This is no mean feat, and my hat goes off to her and her family who never cease to amaze me with their commitment to provide what so many others just won't or cannot seem to do. These dogs will be mostly with a home waiting before they even get to Germany. She is a wonderful woman who talks to us in rapid German her arms miming her speech, don't know how but somehow she gets her point across.
The Sentinella magazine have asked if I would like to be the June featured artist and would involve a front cover and a spread in the magazine, so now I have to come up with a new piece for them with some colour. Lovely to be asked.

I have to point out that my husband David went
to great lengths and many swear words to make
and up-cycle all the frames for the show,
we bought about 20 frames from carboots etc,
and he added extra framing with re-cycled palette
wood, I stained and painted them. Thank you Dave.
