High Hope Hollow by DeepKneeOriginals

It's inspired by the summer with its sun and growth, birdsong, various critters (around my yard lots and lots of lizards, turtles, snakes and deer... as well as the Carolina wrens, bluebirds, cardinals, nuthatches, and owls) and all the wonderful goodies from the garden. The bright, vivid colors in the painting express the joy, vibrancy, and absolute life of the season.

I have two rescue dogs and a rescue cat who are the best pets ever! They love country living and are wonderful companions on walks through the hills and woods (yes, my cat accompanies us from time to time). I participate in the Forsyth County Humane Society biannual fundraiser, Art Unleashed, which raises money through art for the various programs of the Humane Society as well as upkeep and care of the animals housed there.

I also sing in a band and we like to play for fundraisers for causes/organizations that are important to us, including the Humane Society and the more local Animal Rescue of Stokes County. A percentage of the sale of most of my animal-inspired items in my Etsy shop goes to either my local Animal Rescue or the EFA charity of the month.
