Giveaway! And Happy Anniversary...

... to me!! Today is my five-year blog and art anniversary. Five years that have changed my life. And, really, it's all of you who have played the biggest part in this. Without you, this journey would not have been this much fun or filled with inspiration!
I've been traveling in Europe for the last few weeks and will share photos of that with you over the next few weeks and months (there are many!). When I got back, I had trouble getting back into painting.
So to overcome that, I did something totally different than I did before I left. I played with an abstract background in acrylics and then just doodled. I'm getting ready to take Michelle Kral's Gone to Seed class and dried flowers are on my mind.
Winter's Bloom
11 x 14 inches, mixed media
I was just going to use it as an exercise and then paint over it, but I like it a lot. So, I'm giving it away in celebration of five creative years and more to come!

To participate, it's easy. Simply leave me a comment. If you share on your blog, facebook, etc. Just leave me another comment for more entries.

I will have my sister and family visiting soon (yeah!!!) and will be busy with sightseeing and having loads of fun, so I'll leave this open until April 30th!

With gratitude and love!
