Get This Print!


How gorgeous is that? This painting was created by artist Kelly Walker from a photograph of Patriot and Zip, my two rescue horses. This painting will be made into a print for the Heart of Phoenix Equine Rescue benefit at my studio grand opening party on June 16.

You can get more details about the party here (you’re invited!), but even if you can’t come to the party, you can participate. Every individual or family who donates at least $25 or more to the Heart of Phoenix for this event will receive a print, suitable for framing, of the above art. Attendees at the party can take their print home that day. If you can’t attend the party, your print will be shipped to you. ALSO, every person who makes a $25 donation to the Heart of Phoenix for this event will be entered in a drawing for a custom pet (pets, farm animals, etc) portrait by Kelly Walker. (THAT is an amazing prize. But even if you don’t win, you will still receive the print.)

Checks should be addressed to: Heart of Phoenix Equine Rescue.

Envelopes should be addressed to: Chickens in the Road, P.O. Box 858, Clendenin, WV 25045.

Coming to the party? Register here.

Find out more about the Heart of Phoenix Equine Rescue here. HOP is a 501(c)3 charitable organization and your donations are tax-deductible.

See you at the party (or in the mail)! The grand opening party is my first charity event–and my very first event, period–for the studio. Please help me make it a big success for HOP and the horses!

    Your ideas are awesome! Is there a way to contribute via Paypal or credit card to HOP?

    Through the HOP site, you can donate to them via paypal, but in order to receive a print, I need the donations directed to my po box so that I have that information and can also enter you in the drawing. For that reason, send a check addressed to HOP to CITR at the po box in the post. Thanks!

    Cute answer bbkrehmeyer!

    However, I have been known to resemble one on ocassion.

    And I married two of the finest examples, and love them both dearly.

    Got a couple grandsons, who I also love dearly, who have been known to evidence said traits.

    So, I’ll take that beautiful print and raise it a few!

    Good job Kelly and what a wonderful memento Suzanne!

    Be well,

    I and my better half also resemble those butts at times,( perhaps more like donkey butts) but(haha) I had to shovel so much of the roughage from horses butts, that I just don’t like having to be reminded with a print of them. I would have loved loved loved to see the front ends of both of them meandering down the path together.
    Loved the paintings on the walls at Stringtown Rising.

    I guess it depends on your perspective. To me, when I look at that picture, I see two friends walking away to their happily ever after.

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
