Meet California artist Catherine Novak

Catherine has been drawing and painting animals, especially family pets, since elementary school. She works in Oils, Acrylics and Oil Pastel.

Catherine both admires the works and studies the techniques of traditional masters and academic schools of the 19th Century, particularly Edwin Landseer.

Since first adopting a pair of dogs from Rescue in 2012, she's been donating Cavalier themed paintings for auction to help support the fine work of Cavalier Rescue USA. Catherine's current "studio assistants" are KC, a playful 11 year old Blenheim boy and Sparkle, an adorable 9 year old Ruby girl. 

The winner's painting will be of one Cavalier in oils on a 16" x 20" canvas or panel, unframed. The artist will provide for the cost of shipping and handling the finished work. Winner should allow for approximately four weeks from the commencement of the painting to allow for it to be completed to satisfaction and to allow surface to dry sufficiently, assuring safe, undamaged arrival. It will be well worth your wait!

 

 

The details about the Beach House Getaway

This is your chance to have a five-night vacation stay at a gorgeous oceanfront home on Faria Beach, 20 miles south of Santa Barbara, CA, which has been graciously offered by one of our generous volunteers. 

 

 

Description

This two-bedroom home is as aesthetically pleasing as it is comfortable, with stunning views of the coastline through eight-foot sliding doors that open directly onto the deck where the ocean is at your feet. Twelve-foot high curved ceilings and eight-foot doors provide an open airy feeling throughout the house. Limestone floors and showers in the bathrooms invite you to pamper yourself in the spa-like environment. The home’s many windows open to provide fresh ocean breezes and natural light throughout. Designed by a talented local architect, this lovely 2000 square foot, custom luxury home surrounds guests in comfort and beauty.

Official Rules

1   The winner must book their stay directly with the owner, i.e., NOT on the FlipKey site. However, you can use the FlipKey site to view photos of the home and check the registry for available dates and rates for additional nights, if desired. (Note: the FlipKey reference to taxes and cleaning fee DO NOT APPLY to the promotion winner.)

2   The home stay timing is subject to availability, per the calendar on FlipKey.

3   The winner will have 12 months in which to reserve and complete their visit (November 1, 2017 – November 1, 2018).

4   Stay dates during prime season, mid-May through mid-September, must be a minimum of 6 nights – so if the winner wants to choose a date within that interval they would have five free nights and would need to purchase 1 additional night from the owner at regular rates, including 8% tax (but no cleaning fee).

5   The winner is permitted to bring up to two Cavaliers to stay with them in the home; community rules require dogs be on-leash at the beach.

6   A $100 refundable damage deposit is required.

7   Flight(s)/transportation not included.

8   The prize has no set cash value, and cannot be sold. It may be transferred, however, with approval by the donor.

 

This fundraiser benefits our special needs Cavaliers like Maggie who is in foster care in California awaiting cataract surgery and Lucce  and Bosch in Georgia who need heart surgery. Maggie is already blind in one eye, so this vision saving surgery is really important for her. The cost of Maggie's vet care is close to $5K, and Lucce and Bosch's procedures to correct pulmonic stenosis will cost about $3K each, so please donate if you can and help these sweet pups and others to get the care they need.
