A Giveaway

Greetings, my lovely blog readers! I am happy to announce a new giveaway. This time, I am going to let the winner choose between two different pieces of art. These are both giclee reproductions of a charcoal drawing. Each one comes with its own mat and backing board, all acid free. The paper they are printed on is high quality giclee paper, and the inks are archival. So yes, they are reproductions, but they are good quality reproductions. The original drawings have both been sold. They both measure 14 x 11 inches for the outside mat dimensions. That means they will fit perfectly into a standard sized photo frame, making the framing easy and cost effective. The first one is called "Island Girl" and it is a portrait of one of my friends. I drew it while we were still living on Maui. The second one is called "Woman with Veil", and it was also done when we lived in Hawaii. This woman is another friend, and one of my favorite models.





All you have to do to be entered in this giveaway is post a comment here in the next week. Tell me which one you would like in your comment. I will pick a winner next week.

Here is another new monotype. This one I called "Departure" and it measures 7 x 5 inches.


This is the desert denizen who helped me create the new monotype. Mr. Roadrunner! Usually, they are cruising much to fast for me to get any decent photos, so I was happy this one stayed long enough for me to grab my camera and click away. I did take this photo through a window, which will account for the strangeness. Doesn't it look like he has something to tell us??? Too bad we don't speak roadrunner.

Well, it seems I picked a good day to catch up on my favorite blogs!!! I love both images but my favorite is "Woman with a veil". I haven't seen many of these drawings of yours. Do you still work in charcoal?

What a fine looking Roadrunner! After years of loving the cartoon I have a soft spot for them.

Wow Karine, I love both drawings ....how to choose???
Ok, Woman with Veil is the one! Holding fingers and thumbs and doing the lucky dance :-)

"Departure" is great too!

It is too bad we don't speak roadrunner indeed! Last week I saw one here in Texas! It darted across the road on a fast, busy highway, just in front of my car. I'm glad the next car behind me was far away because I braked suddenly. Thankfully, the little guy ran across safely.

Your sketches are incredible. I cannot pick one, so I'll just wait to see if I get chosen before I make that difficult decision!
