Some time ago I was an I-Reporter for CNN News where I met this really talented friend who was also a contributor. She had been on my site and admired the artwork. She asked if she could produce this video and I was thrilled when she showed it to me. Her name is Sharon Akaina and she has produced over one hundred of these tributes. The work shown here is just a tiny sample but so artfully put together that I thought you might like to see it. Turn your sound up!

You never know who you are going to meet on-line but sometimes it’s a wonderful friend who is so giving that it restores your faith in humanity. Thank you Sharon; you are a video guru and a wonderful talented friend!

    I am looking for information on a print we just had donated to our thrift store. “Cat Dancing and Dancing” looks to be a signed Artists Proof signed, matted and framed. Would you be so kind as to contact me in reference to this piece? my email will help you get my cell number. Thank You.

    • artzent says:

      I signed some artist proofs for this piece; you likely have one. The original was commissioned by the late country singer Tammy Wynette as a gift to Burt Reynolds many years ago. It is a portrait of Buddy Reynold’s favorite horse Cat Dancing and her new foal that Buddy named Dancing. The print was a large first edition of this original but there were few signed artist proofs. I hope that this information is useful. Thank you for contacting.
