This is Blenda's second year participating in the Paws For Charity Art Project. Her painting "Puppy Love" is featured on page 45 of the 2010 Paws For Charity Art Book. “Paws for Charity brings attention to the importance of a pet's role in bringing comfort, love and companionship to women faced with breast cancer. Pets are often the glue that binds a family together. When I paint people together with their pets, I strive to capture the strong emotional bond between them in the most expressive way imaginable.” - Blenda
