Linda writes:  
This is a set of note cards I originally made, with the help of Russ McRae, to benefit Rescue for the California Airedale Terrier Club. There are five notes with envelopes printed on a French fold sheet of stationery. Each features a different pen and ink drawing that I did for the CATC newsletter, Aire-ing the News. I ran across one last set in a box recently and am happy to offer it as part of the Quilt campaign to help Airedales in need.

# 346/350 
Donor: Lydia Ross 
Robert Genn is recognized as one of Canada's most accomplished painters, his work is well known internationally. While his subjects are universal (he has painted in many countries), he excels in portraying Canada. He is perhaps best known for his work on the West Coast and in the Rocky Mountains.


His Airedale was named for Emily Carr, one of the first painters in Canada to adopt a modernist and post-impressionist painting style In 1940, age four, whilst travelling in his grandfather's Hupmobile coupe through Beacon Hill Park in Victoria, he saw an elderly woman sitting outside, painting a bridge, and said, "Look, Papa, an artist". His grandfather informed him that "Some people think she's crazy" and that she was Emily Carr, an artist whom Genn has credited as a significant influence on his later work.


Please remember that your donations not only give you the opportunity to win one of these two incentives, but also the main quilt or one of the four bonus quilts/wall hangings.   However, the BIG winners in all of this, are the Rescue Airedales who will benefit from your generosity.
