Unraveling Print by AlexWijnen
Cannon Beach on the Oregon coast is one of my absolute favorite places to visit. I love relaxing in the shadows of Haystack Rock, listing to the sounds of crashing waves and sea gulls. And even though I prefer a sunny day at the beach, I can definitely appreciate the moody, stormy days as well, such as the one depicted in this print by AlexWijnen! (good thing, too, since in Oregon that's mostly what we get).
Our two rescue dogs, Pogo and Tucker, sure seem happiest at the coast when they can run free on a wide stretch of sand (we only allow them off-leash when no one else is around).
I donate a portion of the sales of my dog illustrations to the Oregon Humane Society, which doesn't receive any state or federal funds but instead relies 100% on private donations. They do such great work: last year they found homes for over 11,000 pets! They also happen to be one of my off-Etsy graphic design clients (I design their quarterly newsletter).
