A Giveaway!!

Donna at Funky Junk Interiors is hosting a giveaway in honor of reaching 2000 followers!

(She has 2000 followers! - can you imagine?)

She was sweet and asked me to sponsor a giveaway.

Since I am all about spring and summer and flowers, right now,
I painted these buckets of zinnias.......

This acrylic painting measures 12"x12" on acrylic paper - ready to be framed.

This painting is bright and cheerful - even if my photos of it are not.I will ship this painting flat - not rolled up.

Don't let the "unframed" part scare you - Ikea, Hobby Lobby, and Michaels sell ready-made-frames that can hold a 12"x12" picture - if you can't find a frame with a mat that has a 12"x12" hole -just ask the frame department at Hobby Lobby or Michaels to cut you a mat with a 30cm x 30cm opening for the frame you purchase. They will charge you less than $4 for the new mat with the correct size opening, and you can just slip it into your frame. Also - Hobby Lobby and Michaels often have frame sales (some weeks you can print a Hobby Lobby coupon from here to get your purchase discounted and some weeks Michaels has coupons available in their Sunday paper flyer).

One other thing re: frames - You can also find "opened-back frames" in Michaels and Hobby Lobby, but that is NOT what you want for this painting because it needs backing, glass, etc. The ready-made frames will work perfectly.

So, If you are interested in possibly winning this painting, visit Funky Junk Interiors here for Friday's giveaway!

Now - let me tell you about my inspiration for this painting.
I am really into zinnias, right now (just planted my seeds last week!) And I saw this beautiful photo in Country Living......

This picture of zinnia buckets is from a new book entitled Southern Bouquets. (I am thinking I need to purchase this book for more inspiration!) My painting is not identical to the photo in the magazine article, but I used it as a 'starting point.'
