Drum Roll.........200th Post GIVEAWAY!


In honor of my BIG mouth having reached 200 posts on my blog in just 7 months, I'd like to hold this special giveaway for all my wonderful blog readers!! I'm honored that you've stuck with me!!

This is an original mixed media piece on 9 x 12 watercolor paper. I've used acrylics and watercolors on this one.

I've titled her 'A World of Love'

I can't begin to tell you how much I've enjoyed reading your comments and following your blogs as well! I feel like I know so many of you, yet we've never met. Art has a way of bringing so many people together, don't you think?

Ok, here's the deal: All you need to do is comment on this post. That's it. If you have the urge to go out on your front lawn and do a cartwheel, video tape it and post it on you tube and you'll get 5 extra chances! haha Just kidding......but seriously, that would be fun huh?

I'll hold this open until August 15th and then I shall draw one of you as the winner!

I hope this piece means as much to you as it does to me♥ I value each and every one of you!
Hugs 'n love,
Darla
