The Shelter ART Project by TeaPhotography The Shelter ART Project by TeaPhotography
This is long overdue, but I dedicate this image to my dear friend Pauline :iconkurios-kat: for her partnership on this project that was and always will be very near and dear to my heart. :heart:

It was lovingly deemed:
"The Shelter ART Project"
NOT to be confused with:
The Shelter Project
EXCEPT to say that this ART Project, which even had some left over, for a donation, was a DONATION of ART to the SAME SHELTER, which The Shelter Project: [link] ,
[link] , and
also has its portion proceeds donated to. :aww: :nod:

Last Summer, I was asked by the manager at the Shelter, where I volunteer with the animals, if I could donate my own art professionally framed to the Shelter, which was a relatively new facility and still had some space available on the walls.

While I had JUST fallen further into certain circumstances, I told the manager "YES" anyway, without explaining that I didn't know how I'd pull it off on the financial aspect of it. I had made a list of projects on dA at sometime after that, listing those that would have to wait indefinitely, due to my circumstances... but at some point after that I was contacted by my dear friend, who mentioned that she would like to sponsor the project!! :faint: :happycry: :heart:

Thus became this partnership of ART for The Shelter!!
Of course I did the research of cost, and other legwork involved, and it was my first attempt at actually doing "Professional Framing"- of which I think turned out pretty well, and I created some of the prints myself [the three 8x10's] and ordered two of the 11x14 from dA- all five of the prints turned out really nicely, and the images chosen can be found HERE: [link]

I kept Pauline :iconkurios-kat: in the loop all along the way as much as possible!
:aww: :rose:

Then I presented the whole project to The Shelter on 12-23-2010, which I wrote about in a Journal here on dA, due to the fact that this was and has been one amazing journey from beginning to end, which I will never ever forget! :aww: :rose: :heart:
Seeing these framed works on a section of the walls in the entry way of The Shelter is a humbling and wonderful thing. :aww:

Pauline was a true and wonderful partner, and not just cause of her sponsorship, but due to her encouragement, support, and amazingly kind friendship throughout the whole Project!
:iconflowerthnxplz: :iconflowerthnxplz: :iconflowerthnxplz:

And I really enjoy her work, too...
Here is a feature of her work!

Dear Pauline,
Thank you so much for everything. This project meant so much to me, but it could not have happened without out you! :aww:
I also appreciate your ongoing friendship! You're one amazing person. :hug: :heart:
Your Friend, Tea


[NOTE: I just wanted to say, in advance, how especially grateful for anyone's :+fav: I may receive for this image. :thanks::aww::rose: I am honoured that you would enjoy or think well enough of my work here, to :+fav: it. :nod: So I thank you :thanks: profusely, and from the bottom of my heart :heart: . And because I do realize time constraints all too well, I understand, if you are unable to also leave a comment. :aww: However, whichever you may do, [or even both! :omg: ] I genuinely appreciate it beyond measure. I need you to know this now, in case I'm not capable of doing individual thank-you's for :+fav:'s, which I've not been capable, or in case I cannot respond to each comment, either. Thanks for understanding. :thanks:
:love: And even if you just came to view! :eyes: I am also very HAPPY :D for this! :w00t: ]
