Pali Boucher of Rocket Dog Rescue

This gal is pretty amazing. She pulled herself out of some bad times and off the streets and has devoted her life to saving pooches that might not otherwise make it out of the pound.

Right before Christmas, Pali had a house fire and lost some rescue dogs along with her own pets and her art collection.

You can read the story here:SF gate article

It’s a pretty sad story and I wanted to do something for her that would replace some of her lost art and so that she has something for her new walls once she gets settled.

I got a photo from the lovely Laura B and made this piece of Pali and one of her dogs, Catfish Calhoun: Pali and Catfish Calhoun

It’s another one of these black and white photos on canvas giclĂ©e (I like this process a lot). I painted over it with oil, mostly red and metallic bronze. Catfish Calhoun shimmers and he even has some sparkly Swarovski crystals on his collar.

I delivered it to her last week at an adoption fair, I think she was pretty happy. She went around showing it to everyone with a big smile on her face!
