FREE PAINTING TO BE GIVEN AWAY DECEMBER 1, 2010.

Hi everyone, here is the free painting I will be giving away to one of my followers. And I have a SURPRISE , too. I am also going to give the winner a book, The Yearling by Florida writer, Margorie Kinnan Rawlings (1896-1953). The Yearling book was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 1939. It is one of the best and timeless books I have ever read and you will love it, too, if you have not read it!
So both the painting and the book will go to somone who has signed on as my follower. It is easy to do and only takes a minute, so how about signing on today. It just gives me alot of support in my work to have people sign up on my blog, and I appreciate them doing so.

This painting turned out nicely, I think. I did a very simple background with the fawn as center of interest and then a branch on the right further "points" to the center of interest. Hope you like it.

  1. This is a lovely idea -- but how could you bear to part with such an atmospheric picture? Wish it could be me that wins!!! Mark.

  2. What a beautiful painting! I'm a great fan of the beauty of God's creations as you have so aptly shown in this work of art. Such a clever idea to add the book to the prize. Glad I'm a follower and in the running!
    Love, Karen
