Sol Painting Raffle

Sol

We asked Solsey's talented Grammy is she would be kind enough to paint a picture of Sol that we could raffle off to benefit the Sol Sunshine Memorial Fund. Grammy happily complied and I am very happy to announce the raffle for this one of a kind Solsey painting (pictured above).

Here's how the raffle works:

And incase you were wondering here is a little bit about the artist of the painting.

Artist Sheryl Pascal Gormley currently works in both watercolor and acrylics. Her awards include numerous cash prizes as well as ribbons. She is also an accomplished photographer and writer. 'Almost Scared to Death', her current novel, is nearing completion. The illustrations for her four children's books are in the final stages. As President of Ormond Writers' League she was largely responsible for getting the members to complete an anthology. Her cover photograph was taken on Daytona Beach, Florida. The paperback book, 'Peanut Butter and Jellyfish', is a collection of diverse short stories, published in 2003, available from InfinityPublishing.com

Awwwwwwwwwwwwww…tears over here…For starters, who knew Granny was such a talent?!?!?  Holy moly, how cool!  That painting of Sol is absolutely stunning and I know any of us would be honored to display it proudly in our home in memory of “Our” Girl…[hands off OBP Crew, I want me that Sol!!! wink]

How exciting and what a fabulous idea…Miss you precious Sol…Granny, beautiful, beautiful job.  (I need an illustrator for my children’s book…hmmmmmm.)

Huckle, not sure if you saw my late night post on yesterday’s, but…I meant no offense by calling you our Secretary…I meant it in a good way - like special groups have a Secretary, Treasurer, etc…I just think you did an outstanding job of keeping us all straight on the roster…I could have never done it!

I will be looking at this Sol painting about 50 times today…

*off to buy my lucky ticket*

Sorry Heather and the rest of the OBP gang.  I will have the winning ticket!!!.

What a great idea for the Sol “Sunshine Memorial”. Sol became such a big part of our lives, and she will forever be in our hearts, just like our own babies who have passed. 

Grammy, thank you for your beautiful gift.  I will be honored to hang it on a wall I already have picked out. LOL.

Heather

Hmmmm…Sue VDB, you sound pretty confident over there.  *giggle*

Corrine, you may have an OBP Family wrestling match for the Sol painting before all is said and done…Hahahahahaha…

Heather you may be right.  I think all of us want that precious painting.  Grammy may have to be put to some hard work.

Heather

09/14/2010

Granny, would you consider taking commissions???  lol There seems to be more demand than supply!!

Lisa

09/14/2010

Cool painting!!!!  I just bought 3 tickets in hopes of winning this, and giving $$ to the rescue.

Good luck everyone!

Also, Granny has some serious skills.  I would love to commission her to paint something of Hooie and Tina together….

Beautiful, sweet Sol!  If I win your precious painting it will be displayed in my office for all to see your sweet face.

I AM IN!!!  WINNING TICKETS WILL BE MINE, ALL MINE…BWAHHHHHAAAAAAAAA!  SO THERE!

But seriously folks, great painting!  Good luck all!  I can’t wait!

Heather - Please see my remark that I put on yesterday’s blog today to you about secretarial stuff.  I’m sorry I distressed you.  I was trying to be funny - oops!

I’m sorry folks…this picture is mine, all MINE.

What a talent!  She captured the essence of “our” Sol, didn’t she…the tilt of her head, the look in her eye.  WOW.  Grannygoogs, step in with a GOBSMACKED here!

There may be some serious blood letting when I am announced the winner.  But Ohio is a big state so just try to find me…

Pug hugs &

Ooh, Huckle!  Now we know where to find you!!!California is a little bigger and Sol’s painting will be shipped this way, I assure you!

And…Congrats on the “handle”!  I am so proud to have contributed!

Martha

What a beautiful painting this is!  I love it!  Is Grammy the person we’ve “met” previously as G-Ma?

And Huckle, please add me and Bennie to your list.  We’re in North Texas!  And Bennie and I share a birthday, which always makes my day extra-special!

Heather

09/14/2010

Oh good Huckle, phew!!!  Didn’t want to offend!!  grin

Now, since that is all cleared up I will say…we will track you down if we have to…pugs may have smooshey noses, but I’ll be darned if they can’t sniff out that Sol picture!!!

And you are so right…the eyes are what got me…she captured Sol’s eyes brilliantly…

Karen B, you’re not safe in big ol’ CA ma’am…*giggle*

That’s OK…I can schedule “showings” when Sol’s picture perfect portrait is adorning my wall…It will cost ya though (and all proceeds will be donated to Sol’s fund!)....

BWahahahahahahahaha…..

Karen B.

09/14/2010

Man! Are we sounding agressive or what? I love it!
Corrine, don’t think you’ll have much trouble raising money for Sol’s fund!  Sounds like we’re ALL IN!

Huckle

09/14/2010

Now Karen - you know California is going to fall in to the ocean so to preserve the painting, it must come to Ohio.  We only have tornadoes.  BTW, I giggle every time I type out the signature.

I am sure you all will agree with me as to rightful placement of the portrait.  The background color matches my kitchen walls perfectly, so, of course, I should have it even if my tickets don’t win.  You all wouldn’t want to be selfish, would you?

This raffle is a wonderful idea and fun as we all vie for ownership of “our” painting.  Perhaps Grammy could be coaxed into a portrait of the three fawns all together or individually as well.

What a talent to bring Solsey to life.  You know artists do sell prints of their work although I don’t know how expensive that is but you could sell reprints to the rest of you who don’t win.

Heather - MINE!  Nah-na-nah-na-nah-nah!

Man, my new job is seriously getting in the way of my OBP fix…I can’t log on until the evenings now!! 

Wonderful, beautiful painting of Precious Sol!!!  It brought tears to my eyes too.  Corrine, how will you ever be able to part with it?

Grammy, you did a superb job with the painting…very, very talented!

Heather

09/15/2010

*cracking up over here*...Huckle, love how you said us unfortunate losers could get some reprints…LOL LOL LOL

So much fun…

I have just completed an outline on my wall where Sol will be hanging…we’re waiting for your picture pretty lady!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I didnt get a chance to go on the computer today so when I got home from work tonight here I sit at 2:30 A.M. smiling and laughing at all these comments I must say grammy is so talented and Corrine what a great idea it is such a beautiful painting of sweet precious sol I will make sure I get my tickets also

Karen B.

09/15/2010

Oh, Huckle…How could I have been so silly as to think California would survive and I should be the winner when I didn’t know that your kitchen walls actually MATCHED!!!!  How crazy and insensitive of me!!  Of course, if I win then, I will ship the picture straight to you!

Corrine - OBP

Loving the competition for the painting grin

As of 1:45PM EST I have sent out raffle ticket numbers to everyone I received their receipt from.  If you purchased tickets and have not received your numbers yet, send an email to webmaster@ownedbypugs.com.  If you don’t hear back from me, comment on this post and I will get in touch with you.

Sidenote - the pugs are lucky enough to have a G-Ma and a Grammy to spoil them.

Huckle

09/15/2010

Karen - I’m glad you got the idea.  Anyone want to know not only are our walls orange, the counter tops are a deep rose.  Your generousity flabbergasts me.  Should I send you money for shipping the painting up here?  It’s the least I could do (no, I really mean it’s the least).

Got the winning ticket numbers, Corrine.  How are you going to draw MY winning numbers?

Pug hugs &
Huckle chuckles

Karen B.

09/15/2010

Huck, I’m pretty good at flabbergasting, just ask my husband!!  No, you don’t need to send money, I’ll go beg on the street with a sign that says “Owned by Pugs~CAN YOU HELP?”.  lol!

Huckle

09/22/2010

Karen - Is that how you get your husband to give you money?  smile

Pug hugs &
Huckle chuckles

Huckle, I had to come back and read my earlier comment cuz I forgot what I’d written!! lol I’m gettin’ old…

Yep, my husband sort of knows how much I spend on my pugs and every so often, he’ll help me out a bit!
