I’m holding my first print give-away! The goal is to get my Facebook artist page to 500 Likes. If you’re interested in a chance at winning your choice of a signed 8×10 print of either, “Glimmers of Stardust” or “Treasures of the Sea”, read on! The rules are simple…Share the image (here), leave a comment letting me know you Shared it, and Like my page (here). When the page reaches 500 Likes, 3 people will be randomly drawn to win a print! Good luck and have a great week!

Of course, I hoped…but never outright expected anything. Imagine my surprise (and yes, shock) when I found out I tied for 4th place with one piece and also tied 6th place with another in the digital category! The two pieces that placed are below. Placing was only the first bit […]
