I Won an Original Oil Painting!


I have joined a team on Etsy called
the Christian Artists Street Team.
This team has a blog that offers
features on team sellers and often
has give aways.
This was the first give away I entered.
So imagine my surprise when I found out 
I had won.

Not only had I won, but the item coming
my way was an original oil painting!

The artist and I have communicated a bit
and I find her to be friendly and sweet.
Her name is Carole Stone.
She is 71 years young
and lives in Arkansas.


You can find more of her work
in her Etsy store.
Carole's use of color is
wonderful.
The detail is great 
even up close.


My original artwork is
titled
Pears and Cosmos.


Thank you, Carole.
 

You made my day.

It's a beautiful piece, where do you plan to hang it?

Thanks Everyone. PJ, I plan to hang it in our dining room. I just have to figure out where and if it might have something else with it.

Also...PJ...your winner's candles are headed out by way of Priority Mail this morning. Yay! Love this cooler weather.

Becky - I LOVE that painting - She is very talented.

I also LOVE that you rescue animals! I am an animal lover and my step-mom had a dog and cat rescue in the Pocono Mountains for almost 30 years before she passed away last year.

God Bless You♥
