Anniversary Blog Post & Giveaway
Jun 23, 2015 |
It’s my blog’s Anniversary! First, I’m celebrating by doing a Giveaway of my original painting, below.

And, the Winner is: Kristen Hamilton! Congratulations Kristen! 🙂
Way back in June 2008, I started an adventure in putting my ideas on the World Wide Web. Little did I know that this blog would still be going strong 7 years later. From its humble beginnings, my blog has grown – it now gets almost 200,000 visits per year, and has almost 400 posts in its archives. That’s a lot of reading & writing!
My hope is that folks who visit my site find inspiration, enjoy seeing new artwork and come away looking at the world a bit differently. In the next year, I’d also like to increase the number of repeat visitors, drawing each of you back in.
Please help me do that: Tell Me,
what kind of information or inspiration you’d like to see on my blog! Leave a comment
and I will add your name to a drawing for one of my favorite books on color: Making Color Sing
by Jeanne Dobie. If you’d like more than one entry, share this post
on Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest and let me know
. One extra entry for each! It’s easy to share using the buttons at the bottom of the post or on the left side of the website page. I will be drawing for the winner
of this fun giveaway on June 30th
Thanks to the artists who took the time to share their work for this online ‘show.’ I hope you’ll click on each image to visit their websites!
