Sonya and I with my painting in the socialization room of HSSV
My post yesterday about painting at the HSSV got a little long, but I wanted to be sure to let all of my loyal readers (all six of you!) know about the other artist that painted the dog adoption rooms, Sonya Paz. She has a color palette after my own heart and has some really wonderful things on her website, http://sonyapaz.com/.

My name is Ron Burns and my passion is helping orphaned animals find their furever homes. I began painting my own dog, Rufus, almost 18 years ago and then quickly switched my focus to painting animals up for adoption at shelters and rescue groups across the country. For each piece of art I sell, a portion of the sale goes to various animal welfare organizations. I consider myself blessed to bring forth the best in each animal I paint, and I dream that one day there will be no more lonely and I-want-to-be-loved eyes looking at me from behind caged doors.
And, I love my family - Buff (my wife of many years and high school sweetheart), Loganberry (cute little black lab mix) and Emma (our newest, cute Rottie mix).
