Giving Thanks Benefit 2018

The Fifth Annual
 Giving Thanks Benefit Event

Assistance Dogs of Hawaii

Mark your calendars! The ADH "Giving Thanks" Benefit Event will take place on November 11th, 2018 at the Waialae Country Club on Oahu. 🐾

You won't want to miss this incredible evening!

It's always nice as an artist to donate work to a charity.  Every year I donate my artwork to Assistance Dogs of Hawaii. This is the fabulous training school founded by Mo and Will Maurer. http://assistancedogshawaii.org/

My  service dog, Wesley, is from ADNW which is part of ADH. I have had three assistance dogs from them and they have been the best. The most loving, helpful, and loyal companions!

This is my service dog Wesley!
Westly says:
Casey just donated one of her gorgeous Sumi-e paintings to ADH, my training school. It is for their silent auction at the benefit. Isn’t that pawsitively cool?  
Woof, Woof, Wesley




Kelly's Magic Persimmons
Sumi-e by Casey Shannon
It is my pleasure to donate a piece of my art for the silent auction and support such a deserving organization that helps so many people and dogs!


This painting is very special to me. It was painted in honor of my daughter as she battles cancer. These are her magic persimmons!

Fabulous New Sumi Brushes!

New Sumi Brushes!

Hello My Art Friends!

I just wanted to share with you some fabulous new art brushes I just acquired. I am so happy and delighted to get them. I feel so inspired just looking at them. I better stop looking and get painting soon, huh?


Rare Triple Brush ~ Deer Hair

This brush is from a wonderful art store in Tokyo called Pigment. They have everything, paint, brushes, paper, a sumi museum, and classes. 

 
 
 Handmade Brush ~ Horse Hair & Bamboo
 
This brush is lovingly made by Elizabeth Schowachert. She makes beautiful brushes and other art tools. These brushes are works of art. So lovely.
 
 

 


Art Set from HMAY
 
Wolf & Weasel Hair
 
My brushes came rolled in a protective bamboo carrier. There are 3 perfect sizes. I am a sumi artist and can't wait to paint more with these fantastic brushes. They hold their point well and glide with ease across my paper. I am able to make many different kinds of brush strokes with just these 3 brushes.
