Collaborative Art Journal for A Place to Bark

The beautiful, talented, and compassionate Renee Troy has worked tirelessly these past few months on a special book project for A Place to Bark.  A Place to Bark is a no kill, animal rescue and sanctuary located in Tennessee and operated by Bernie Berlin.  Bernie is the author of Artist Trading Card Workhop, a terrific technique and reference book used and loved by many artists.  Renee has had on her heart to do a special project that would minister to abused and hurting animals.  She thought of Bernie's work at A Place to Bark, and decided to organize a collaborative artists' book to auction off.  Renee brought together the work of nearly 30 artists.  This is my page for the book. I used a Speedball B nib and sumi for the background text and a pointed pen and Dr. Martin's Bleedproof White for the flourishing on the dog.  The text is Albert Schweitzer's "A Prayer for Animals" and also the King James Version of Job 12: 7-10. Please view the work of each artist and the completed, bound book on the slideshow at Renee's blog here.  Renee has listed this wonderful book for auction on Ebay.  All the proceeds will got to A Place to Bark and the work that Bernie is doing there.  Some lucky and generous soul will not only be donating to the great work Bernie is doing at A Place to Bark, but they will also be the recipient of an incredible work of art.
Maybe that lucky and generous person is you!

Thank you Renee for your warm and creative spirit.  Like Bernie, you are an inspiration, and it was a privilege to be a part of this!!!


  1. This is genius, Jane! Must admit I have never seen a flourished dog before! Looks great.

  2. Such a wonderful idea and a great cause. It is something I truly believe in. Wow ~ how phenomenal your contribution is!!!!

    Oh, to be the owner of this special book.

  3. Jane, this is amazing! What a wonderful way to combine these texts for this purpose. I hope it generates the kind of proceeds it should, because this is a true treasure. They are lucky to have your work be a part of it!
