Another donor! (Laura Kaardal) #HomeswithWoofs

Ottawa artist Laura Kaardal has very kindly offered to donate an 8” x 10”  pencil portrait of a dog, cat, or person to our silent auction. The portrait will be unframed and valued at $ 165.

Here’s an example of another kind of painting that Laura loves to do. You may have seen one of these in Ottawa at one of the many art shows and festivals that she participates in, like the Ottawa Art Expo (she’s been there the past two years). The title of this beauty is La Rosace, Paris. Beautiful.

Laurel - painting 2

Laura has eleven years’ experience drawing portraits and eight years of painting. Her main artistic work is acrylic paintings of street scenes of New York and Paris, but she also loves to do pencil portraits and always welcomes commissions.

Keep an eye out for her at The New Art Festival on June 21-22; she’ll be there for the third time (that’s only ten days after Homes with Woofs!).
