Group Description

I started this group for a few reasons. As a veterinarian and an artist, animals and art are my 2 passions. and maybe Krispy Kreme Doughnuts when the "hot light" is on! 3 passions. :)

I don't paint animals exclusively though, as I tend to get bored with one subject. People often ask about the animal paintings and people want to share their pet photos. I am always looking for great reference photos for ideas and inspiration and this is the way to organize those pics- without me losing them.
(My computer has eaten my inbox before I downloaded some pics someone sent to me. I can't remember who it was to let them know, sadly).

By joining the group, you understand that your photo might be used as a reference picture for a painting if you choose to add it to the group pool. Other artists are welcome to join and use the pics too. I am a founding member of Art Helping Animals, so you might see some of them in here too. www.arthelpinganimals.com

(If I happen to use your photo, this group gives me an easy way to notify you- so you can see the results).

Commissioning an actual painting is a whole 'nuther thing, but you are welcome to upload your ideas and photos if you want to share them.

If artists want to upload samples of their work, if they are seeking commissions, I think that might be a good thing too. What do you think? Or post a link in the discussions section, maybe.

The group is a public group- so be on your best behavior. Spam gets deleted.
