Fall Giveaway

Well, I've decided it is fall giveaway time. I was just thinking that it has been what seems like forever since I've hosted a giveaway. I've enjoyed my others so much and it is a great way to thank all of you, my readers, for coming back time and again.

I'll be giving away this dragonfly duck egg with acrylic stand that you see above. I was bitten by the bug to paint it because I really enjoyed painting the large Ostrich egg last year, that you see this one pictured with above. That one also has a dragonfly and leaf theme.

In these photos you can see the side views of the leaves and vines and all the gems that have been added for extra sparkle as well.

The back is signed and dated by me...... You can also tell from this photo that the background is a rich, marbled gold, silver and burnt sienna color.

I couldn't resist getting out some of my other egg pieces that I've painted so that I could photograph them in different groupings. I don't really need much of an excuse to get the camera out and have a little fun.

I will have Chris pick a name out of our kitchen mixing bowl (things remain primitive around here, what can I tell ya) on Tues November 11th. This will give everyone a good amount of time to sign up for the drawing if you are interested. All you have to do to have a chance to win is sign this post, letting me know you would like to be entered into the giveaway. It doesn't matter where you live, how far away you are....feel free to sign up for this, everyone is eligible.

I fell like it has also been a long time since I showed a painting in progress so I'm going to be doing that soon as well. I've started a new faux window which I'm really excited about and I've been taking pictures of it as I paint along, at different stages of completion. I'll be showing some of that painting in upcoming posts.
