In Your Face (Buttons) by Catherin McMillan

In Your Face (Buttons)

Since my last post to my blog Ive started working with another horse rescue group called TREW rescue which is based in Victoria Australia. TREW is very involved with helping the horses that have been effected by the terrible bush fires that are occurring in Victoria at the moment.

Currently organising feed, water, medical care and a safe place to house all the injured and homeless horses and ponies.

In Your Face (buttons) is one of the many horses that they currently care for. I hadn't planned to work on this piece for a couple of weeks but given the current situation felt that I should fast track this piece.

In Your Face is pastel on canson paper 9" x 11" in size.

Price: $175.00 + postage 10% of the sale price will go directly to TREW rescue where the money is desperately needed now more than ever.

Payment can be made by pay pal for International purchasers or direct deposit for Australian purchasers. Email:

for the next month 10% from the price of any commission booked or sale of original artwork from either or will go directly to the Victorian Fire appeal.

Thanks for taking the time to read my blog and feel free to pass it along to anybody you may think would be interested in reading.
