Moderncat Holiday Give-a-thon: Win a Custom Pet Portrait from Jobi Harris

Sun, Dec 12, 2010

Art & Sculpture, Giveaways

We have a bonus give-a-thon prize today from watercolor artist Jobi Harris. Jobi is offering two 8 x 10 custom water color portraits, one for you and one for your favorite charity. This is a great prize for a charity to receive because they could use it to honor a special kitty or volunteer, or they could use it for a fundraiser by offering it as an auction or raffle prize. The retail value is $150, so that could be a very nice fundraiser.

To enter to win, please leave a comment on this post with the name of the charity you would donate the second portrait to. The winner will be announced on Christmas Eve along with all the other give-a-thon winners. Thanks, Jobi!

I used to paint, but cannot anymore.She is so precious and beautiful to me and I love her so much!She has ben my room mate for almost 2 years.So sweet! I would pick The Humane Society of Portland,OR as my charity,because they euthanize unwanted pets and I cannot take that. Maybe your painting will show people how gorgeous animals really are and want them to choose an unwanted animal.Thank so so much. Sincerely,Jenny A. Ayres
