Okay...so, life has thrown some curve balls my way lately. Actually, my life has been hit by an almost constant flow of curve balls since the beginning of 2008. So many struggles and disappointments and really super scary stuff. BUT....here I am. Still clinging and clawing and chugging along trying to make the best of my Everydays.
Truly, I have found that when times are hard and I'm struggling, one of the best pick-me-ups is to give. There are so many things my family and I have lost...and in that knowledge comes a desire to give to others. Because really, little unexpected gifts can make a bad day better...it can throw a bit of sunshine on an otherwise dark time. So...in the middle of my darkness, I'm having a giveaway.
This particular art giveaway is for a framed original. It is a framed ACEO. For those of you who might not be familiar with ACEOs.... (The acronym "ACEO" stands for Art Cards, Editions and Originals. They can be original art, print editions or photographs. ACEOs are miniature pieces of art that measure 2-1/2" x 3-1/2", the same size as a standard trading card). The frame measures 7" x 9" and is wired for hanging. This piece was in my "Connecting Spaces" show last Autumn.
This ACEO is entitled "The Reader". It is a watercolor/collage...but I created it using Cabernet Sauvignon instead of water. The dark red wine brings a nice depth to the watercolor.
Here's what you do if you'd like to participate. Simply leave a comment. Now, I know that sounds simple, BUT, I've been having major issues with my readers being able to leave comments. Seems there's a problem with blogger...and it's been going on for almost 2 years! So, if you are unable to leave a comment on my blog, please, email the comment to gerushiasworld at AOL dot com. I will then add you into the hat along with everyone else! The winner will be chosen at random.
The contest will run through Sunday night, March 11th, at 8:00 pm pacific time. I will announce the winner on Monday, March 12th.
I do hope you'll join the fun. It's not often that I have a giveaway for an original piece. Hmmmm....actually, I'm not sure that I have ever had a giveaway for an original.
