WIN A PAINTING!


During the Houston Market I ran a promotion giving away three of my original watercolor paintings. It was a great success and I happily gave two of the paintings to a couple of wonderful ladies. The third little painting, however, did not find a home so........I want to give it to someone now! It measures 7" x 10" and is not framed. Starting today and ending Monday the 19th, at 5:00pm, anyone who leaves a comment, with your full name, on this post will be entered to win. A random drawing will determine the new home for the blackbirds. Hope you like it!

Hi Kathy,
I just recently discovered your artwork and your patterns, because a friend of mine - "Atelier Bep" - start selling them. I modelstitched "Harvest Home" for her. Because of the ladies of Blackbird Designs, I also found out about your blog today!
And now you're giving away this wonderful painting! Of course you didn't know I'm a birdhouse collector... And also fond of black birds... But this painting could have been made just for me :)
Thank you for the opportunity to win it!

Regards from the Netherlands.

Your paintings are gorgeous but I also love your Twirly Birds pattern. I've used your fabric for two different quilts (that I love) but have never made your patterns. I think it might be time. Thanks for a great contest. :::fingers crossed::: Blogless in California.

Hi Kathy,
What a wonderful gift you have. I am always a bit jealous of people who can paint so beautiful.

The colours in this painting are just the ones I like the most. I like to win this, so thank you for the opportunity to win it.
