We are especially fortunate this year to have TWO spectacular items
from two generous artists for our
Sixth Annual Holiday Raffle. You have TWICE the chance of winning, so don’t
delay, buy your tickets today!
Toronto artist Pey Lu is donating
The Harvest, a recreation of an
original piece from her "Animal Wisdom" series. As Pey describes it, The Harvest
is a musing in na´ve art -- there is no message other than to portray a simple
manifestation of joy. The Harvest measures 10" by
12". As with any original art work, avoid exposure to direct sunlight or an open
Pey is also offering three
Funny Bunny Warning signs from her Etsy
to the runners up.
Of her artwork, Pey says: "I work in clay pictures, which I create by
sculpting on a thin layer of clay on canvas or board and then gently layer with
different paint media to achieve the finish and patina which typify my style and
themes. The clay adds texture, crackle and a well worn look to a wide range of
subject matter, mostly folk art based, but with an occasional urban twist."
Scottish artist Annette Tait is contributing
Mother Hare Fortuna,
a textile ornament of a real-size mother hare to display fondly in your home.
This soft sculpture is made from an upcycled printed cotton and has a polyfill
stuffing. Mother Hare Fortuna measures 10.5" high by 18" long and she comes with
a small tag telling her story.
Of her craft, Annette says: "Fortuna is a very beautiful and good mother hare
and she looks after her babies well. Fortuna has been made with great care,
machine and hand-sewn by me, and she will have many unique (imperfect, handmade)
bits. Fortuna is looking forward to resting cozily on your arm chair and would
appreciate an open door to your garden."
All proceeds will go
directly to our foster program and will ensure that needy bunnies have a safe
and happy holiday season while they await the ultimate gift, a permanent home.
