If there is one thing that makes us happy, it’s hearing about artists who are using their talent to spread the good word about animals. And if there’s one thing that makes us ecstatic, it’s hearing about people who are hell-bent to make the world a better place for pit bulls, who are some of the most unfairly maligned, and most adorable and kind (and yes, we rhymed), creatures on earth.
So, naturally, we were thrilled to hear about an exhibit by artist Robert McClintock opening tonight at his Baltimore Gallery. Not only has McClintock painted wonderful portraits showing the heart, soul, and pure joie de vivre of these fabulous dogs, but what’s more, he is auctioning off a commissioned pet portrait, donating a portion of the proceeds of the sale of his series to the local adoption group BARCS Pit Crew, and inviting pit bulls who need homes to the opening of the exhibit to meet prospective new families. What a guy!
