Carp Pen & Ink Drawing

Carp Pen & Ink Drawing – This pen & ink drawing of a carp will be donated to auction to benefit the Paws and Affection charity.

About Paws and Affection

Paws and Affection is a Philadelphia based 501c3 nonprofit charity that provides service dogs for disabled children. Their mission is to train companion dogs for children with a variety of disabilities. As a father of a young daughter with special needs, I could relate to the parents of the children benefiting from the work that Paws and Affection does. Donating my artwork for the auction seemed like a great thing to do.
