A Celebration Give Away

I'm celebrating!  
♦  My First Newsletter is just about ready to send.   It has only taken me one year to manage and I'm thinking the hard part is just doing it the first time.  I was just dreading all the new learning curves one has to conquer and navigate around.

♦ I'm holding the "send" button a couple of days to give you a chance to sign up if you haven't already because there is a "special offer" for newsletter recipients.

Scroll down my side bar for the newsletter sign up link.


I'm celebrating!
♦ I will start listing my little stack of Original mixed media canvases soon.....maybe this weekend.

I'm celebrating!
♦ I will also be listing prints.  Prints of my new larger pieces will be large format prints as shown above.

I'm celebrating with a print giveaway!
♦ Do you see the front print above that is way on the side of the paper?   Well it is a good print except I was messing with the placement and messed up!  Large format prints are a lot more expensive to produce and mail for obvious reasons and this print is too good to discard.  It is suitable for framing.
♦ Sooooooooo, I'm going to have a comment drawing for this very print.

♦ You don't have to jump through any hoops.  Just leave me a comment on this post and I will draw a name next week.  

Thank you for celebrating with me!

  3. Oh Sharon - well done. The hardest part is the first one, and wearing another hat, thinking of how and what and why; it's a left-brain / right-brain thing (though I can never remember which is which). Please sign me up ... I can't wait. All the best, Ann. (And now I'll catch up with your recent posts, because I've been absent for too long). X

  56. I am in a wheelchair and 50 years old, and like you, painting for me is an adventure everytime. It gives me wings, and I forget about everything and everyone... just for a little while and it feels great. I simply love your work, like you I love to create my imaginary people, using strong contrast and all sort of bold colors. It keeps our heart and soul young.

  66. I am so happy Sharon, to have the opportunity to own artwork created by your hands; especially a creation so wonderful. I have only begun my journey with you and your blessings of wonderful talents.

    I signed up for your Technicolor Faces class and then I had to go out of state a while to help my daughter with her art studio/shop in Florida. I am back home and ordering all of my paint supplies online tonight. I have watched your videos so many times that I may not have to watch them to paint the faces :) I actually already feel like I painted them :) I'm excited to take more of your classes.

    Please continue to use your God-given talents so we can all benefit. I love you for it.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Congratulations on your newsletter! I just signed up! Since I know the whole story behind this piece, I would LOVE to win the print =)(The rest of their story is that they are both a bit eccentric and they found in each other the perfect match. The bling is really bits of food she painstakingly and gently lays out for the bird each morning and they are then eaten by this rather persnickety (is that spelled correctly?) bird in the same order they are placed. So now you know the rest ♥)

  104. Hi Sharon-

    Really love your blog and your work. I want to also thank you for doing the morning art and making you tube videos for us all to see. I watched one whole series of them and you got me inspired to start painting again. I'd sort of lost my groove for a while but seeing you do it and feeling that wonderful sense of peace has been a great help! I'd love to win your give away and be able to have a print of your artwork! Thanks!
