However, I have surpassed 30,000 visitors to this blog, and I am having a giveaway, as promised. I haven't decided exactly what I am going to give away just YET, but I promise you will be able to choose between more than one thing, and it will be a piece of my art. I am sure you are wondering how you go about being part of this giveaway. It's pretty easy. Just leave me a comment, between now and November 7th. If you want to share how long you have been following this blog, that would be kinda cool, but it is optional. I will choose my winner on Monday, the 8th of November. I will post photos later this week of the items you will be able to choose from, if you happen to be the lucky one. There will most likely be three things to choose from. I have already picked one of the things, I just haven't decided on the other two things yet. (I know - so much suspense!)
For those of you who are wondering about my recent shows, both the Open Studio Art Tour and the Art in the Park in Ventura were successful shows!!! I have worked really hard this year, and it is clear to me now that hard work does pay off. My goal this year was to paint 100 paintings, and as I write this, I have completed 90 paintings. I have already told some of you about this goal, so I apologize if I sound like a broken record. I just wanted to tell others about it, because I am so excited that I am going to meet my goal.
I am off to visit my long absent husband next week, and I hope to be blogging about my overseas adventures. It will depend on internet access, of course, but it will be fun to do a little traveling. I love sharing adventures with you, my dear blog readers. I am going to make a concerted effort to catch up on my fellow bloggers this week. I hope all of you U.S. readers remembered to vote today. I did.
