Toy Story 3 limited edition & signed print

Featured as part of our arts sale for Chicks In Crisis, this exquisite limited edition print, signed by Adrian Molina who is currently winning awards for co-directing/writing Pixar's Coco. This framed print is 1435 out of 1500 prints produced for the Pixar crew, has been kindly donated by sets supervisor Amy Allen. 

Sonoma Barn, by Charu Clark

Charu grew up in India and now lives in northern California and works at Pixar Animation Studios as a lighting artist.
"Though my day job entails the use of a computer more than a paintbrush, of all technical fields related to computer graphics, Lighting feels the most akin to painting in the real world. That said, the thrill of a paintbrush in my hands is something I cannot live without."
Charu has donated a beautiful original oil painting titled 'Sonoma Barn' which will be available to purchase on March 10th at Laguna Town Hall in Elk Grove.  100% to benefit Chicks In Crisis.

Three Little Hens & Baby Chicks prints.

Two charming 1950's children's book prints in keeping with our Mother Hen theme. Illustrators unknown but this pair of prints would look fabulous in the nursery.

Vase of Flowers, by Riana

Kicking off our showcase of art donated to The Mother Hen Project #3 with this delightful original pen & ink drawing by Riana who is just 9 years old.  I was amazed when she offered to donate it for our Chicks In Crisis fundraiser. Such a beautiful and inspiring piece by such a young talented artist. Hoping that more children are inspired to donate artwork this year. Thank you Riana!

Thank you to EVERYONE who donated & volunteered & supported The 2014 Mother Hen Project silent & live auction on Saturday! The artwork looked stunning! The venue was uber-cool! The food & wine was delicious! The MC was highly entertaining and everything ran very smoothly.

We are still waiting to hear the final numbers for how much we made on Saturday - but a good estimate is around $12,000 and we still have more artwork to auction! So if you were not able to make it to the auction or live so far away that it would not have been feasible for you to come - here is the opportunity for you to get your hands on some of the beautiful artwork you have been liking and sharing on social media and support the work of Chicks In Crisis. In the next few weeks we are going to be auctioning some of the artwork on facebook! So keep your eyes & your fingers poised.
