**Painting Give Away leave a comment to enter**


Dear Reader,
Friday, April 23rd is my 2 year blogiversary! Instead of writing a weepy monologue about how much this blog means to me (like I did last year--) I'm gonna do ya one better: Give away a painting! Yes! The painting is "Encore," one of my personal favorites.
I've never given away a painting like this before and I may never do it again...
If you would like to win Encore, leave a comment after this post now. Lurky-loos and Anonymous visitors are encouraged to participate. The winner will be chosen (randomly from a hat) and announced Friday morning sometime.
This is a limited time offer to celebrate my 2 year blogiversary. Your comment must be left after THIS post BEFORE Thursday midnight. Don't email me, it won't count!
As always, Dear Reader, thanks ever so much for visiting, it's appreciated more than I can say without.weeping.profusely.
Fondest regards,
Diane
PS: Ok, just call me mortified. This morning, I accidentally "rejected" several wonderful comments. Heh, I think I got a little over excited to see so many comments all at once and I do humbly apologize. If you left a comment between 9am and 10:30 EST Tuesday, check to make sure it got published. If not, I'm sorry you'll have to comment again to re-enter. Very sorry for the trouble. The give-away will go on as scheduled.

  1. Congrats Diane!! You're so funny - I'll have to check out your post from last year : ) I feel that way too though. Blogging has become a huge part of my life. And what was really unexpected was the friendships you make. A beautiful bonus. I've enjoyed your blog immensely and here's to the new year ahead!
    Oh, and by the way - nice painting : ) Of course your flowers are lush, but I'm REALLY liking that vase!

  11. Diane!

    Do you make your own panels too? I love working on wood panels and my friends think I'm crazy!

    I've started doing all of my paintings (up to 20 x 24 ) on 1/2" birch ply and I'll never go back! I haven't been cradling them unless I do them specifically to hang without a frame.

    Thanks for posting the back of your paintings.

  19. Hi Diane! I love that your making art a game, and getting people involved. It's the best type of promotion! Keep up the good work. And also, i love the color scheme. It's so much more saturated then some of your other floral studies. -R!ch

  20. Diane...you are amazing as always. I love all the pieces. I know I already own two of your paintings...so I'm entering for my sister Susan who just loves your work.
