WARNING! INSTAGRAM TAKEOVER! This is the IG manager speaking... @janejamesfineartist. We want to harness the power of the insta-dog community! It brings together a great group from all over the world, and it has led to some wonderful friendships. People have even travelled interstate and internationally to meet up. Amongst these Instadogs, is Alf, a Kelpie living in Hobart.
As it happens, I’ve known Alf Morley all his life, and I know how much he loves a stick, any toy, or a good howl. People who follow Alf may remember a story told about a stick he collected after the floods in Hobart. He was very attached to this particular one, and wouldn’t let it go.
I’m known for my love of sticks too, and seem to have developed a bit of a reputation for it as well, so those familiar with both of us saw an opportunity... at the urging of both @bruno_and_gracie and @wellington..dingo, it was done. ‘The stick’ was immortalised in paint. So this is Alf, and Alf’s stick.
We all felt that we could lend a helping hand and paw, and use the stick to raise both awareness and funds for charities, so we approached two organisations in Tasmania who both do wonderful work, @stay_chatty, and @gsrtasmania. They were good sports, and agreed to be a part of this, and here we are.
So... we’re open to offers. All the money will be split 50/50 between the charities, with the winning bidder paying them directly. Let @janejamesfineartist, @rinthegermanshepherd or @fimorley5 know your bid by DM, and we’ll keep a tally.
Please pass this on, through any social media platform or word of mouth. Let’s see if we can get as many people involved as possible. We’ll close the bidding on the 6th of August, and notify the winning bidder then, and I’ll organise the freight of the painting. The original stick is also still available if we can continue to keep Alf away from it. Open internationally! Let the games commence! 🐾🎨 #helpingthoseinastickysituation #letslendahelpingpaw #collaboration #stick #stickexpertsunite #painting #auction #study #paint #painting #art #artist #instaart #instaartist #stick #brisbane #potd #australianartist #brisbanearti
