Well, I know you have all been anxiously waiting to hear who the lucky winner of my latest giveaway is. I had so many wonderful entries that I finally had to employ the help of my husband. (Pono gave his input, too, with a tail wag.) The lucky winner is Charmaine, a fellow blogger and author of High Desert Diva. Her winning title for the diptych I posted was "Lake Reflections, Autumn." Congratulations, Charmaine!!! You are the winner of "Three Quail", the linocut. I am also going to award Melissa, of Pugnotes an honorable mention, since her entry included part of the title. (Reflections) Thank you so much, to EVERYONE who entered. I needed help with the title of that diptych, and I appreciate all of your input. It was a difficult decision, choosing a winner. I am thankful to have such loyal readers to celebrate post number 300 with! Thank you, my dears!
I am still a little tired from the Studio Tours. I think I just overdid it. I did show again this weekend, with the life drawing group. I delivered two framed portraits and some unframed drawings to the show, but I did not stay to talk about my art and meet people. I kept thinking I should be down at the exhibit all weekend, but to be perfectly honest, I just didn't have it in me. I want to thank my friend, Janis Comments, who organized the whole event, and for those artists that did stay to talk to people who came. You did what I could not do, and I am grateful for you!
