Our dachshund Frankie was attacked by a coyote Wednesday night. We could use a little help with the vet bills. If you can't donate, please share this. We are thankful that she survived, but a little afraid of the debt we just racked up!

My dog was attacked by a coyote! Wednesday night Frankie our dachshund snuck out past me when I went outside. I had no idea she was out. I heard a terrible sound and immediately started to worry who's neighbor dog it might be. Suddenly I realized Frankie was not barking at the commotion and started to call for her. I opened the front door and there she was! She was bleeding badly! I wrapped her in a towel and held her close putting pressure on the four puncture wounds, two on each side. I called my husband, and had to wait for him to get home. It broke my heart as my children cried on either side of me.

We took her to the emergency vet down the hill where they stabilized her, took X-rays and kept her overnight. They determined that she needed surgery, so Thursday morning I took her to our vet in rimforest. She is doing well now and recovering however I had to use our rent money, run up a care credit card and wipe out our savings to pay the vet bills.

I don't normally do the cyber begging thing, but strangely I do donate to this sort of thing often. A friend of our set up a go fund me account for her to try and recuperate our losses. If you can, any amount would help tremendously! If we collect more than is needed to pay off this credit card, and get our rent back, my husband and I have decided that we will donate it back to the animal hospital, to go toward people who can't afford an unexpected pet emergency like ours. We do not intend to profit from this at a all. Here is the go fund me page, and if you can't donate sharing the page will help too.

Please help! This boys face has been driving me crazy! I know it's wrong, but I'm not sure how to make it right. The more I mess with it the worse it looks. This is a portrait in oil. The second shows the photo close up of just him next to the painting. #fineartcritiquepls

To #anACEOaDay, I'm so glad to see people still participating in this! I still haven't felt up to doing art everyday, but I like that my baby is still alive and well. Great job everyone! I hope that it has helped you as much as it helped me. Enjoy! And keep creating!

Does anyone here know about pianos?

A few months ago, someone gave my husband a baby grand piano. We had to go get it, and move it ourselves. I watched a video about how to move it/ take it apart. The peddles were fine when I took them off, but when I put them back on, one of the screws won't stay in, like the hole is stripped or something.

My question is, do I just fix the stripped hole so the pedals can be screwed back in? Or could it be something else. It seems like the pedals would work just fine, if the screw would just stay in, but I worry about messing up the piano.

Hopefully this will inspire me to create new pieces for the upcoming year. Use coupon code GOOGLEPLUS.

Please share, and help support the arts.
Why art makes a great gift. People like art! However it is not something people will buy for themselves. Even though most people would love something interesting to adorn their wall, it is not a necessity. It feels like a luxury, that the average person can't afford.
In the art world, it is not hard to find something great, that would easily fit into a gift budget. Art comes in all colors shapes and sizes. All styles and tastes! As long as you know the person you are buying for, you can find the perfect piece for them.
Give them something they can't find in a store! Something they can enjoy for a lifetime.
In turn, you will make a struggling artist very happy for the holidays!
I would love for you to buy my art, but this message is from me, not for me. Just take a look online! See what's out there. You can get original art almost anywhere, for almost any price. Etsy, E-bay, Artfire, there are too many to name! Just take a look!
