Friday the 13th Give-away!

Two more paintings to choose from for today's give away:

1. A painting done in Sandy's class that used her taped technique. You tape each value and paint, taping as you go along, like a poured painting but each value is taped after painting. When you pull all the tape off, if you've done it right, you get a painting that works. I like the glow in the window of this one but I did not enjoy doing all that time-consuming taping! You know me, can't slow down...

This one is painted to the edges of an 11" x 15" sheet of Fabriano coldpress 140# paper. It can be matted down to 10 1/4 x 14 1/4.




















2. A painting of flowers on rice paper. Watercolor paint on crinkled rice paper. It was completed by gluing it to Fabriano 140# coldpress paper and painting the darks in. It's sturdy and you have a bit of an edge. It can be matted down to 11" x 14."





Post a comment - I'll take the 5th person who posts today (your posts all have the time listed on them when I see them come through for approval so I'll know, by time, who was first, second, third, etc.).

Tell me which one you'd prefer - and then you just have to send me your mailing address.

Now remember, I have to approve the posts so YOU DON'T SEE THEM here at the blogspot until after I've seen them and approved them so...don't hold back waiting to be number 5 or you might miss out!!

Are you lucky on Friday the 13th? Good luck!

Hi Rhonda, I love them both!!! (I want to try that taping method.) I'll be catching up on email tonight and painting this weekend too. I have the weekend off! Yaaaaaay!

Does it count if I send you more than one comment? LOL

Terry said...

I love the look of the window and its very sort of Christmas like and would not have thought that it had been poured

Terry said...

Looking at the close image of the flowers it looks almost like Batik but is very effective and lovely but I prefer the Window as I can look into it and almost write a story about what is happening within the house

Ann Buckner said...

I'm starting the ball rolling today Rhonda. I think I'm first. Good ones to pick from today!

Ann Buckner said...

Hi Rhonda, I can join in the fun this time since I've won but wanted to say that your work is even better in person than what is shown on-line. I know since I am lucky enough to have one of your paintings. Can't wait to see the jars painting. It will look great on the wall in the kitchen.

RHCarpenter said...

Well, we got 5 comments, but the
5th is from Ann, who already won a painting so....
let's see who comes up next that is new - and they will win!!!

RHCarpenter said...

Jump in there, Deb or Terry!!

Terry said...

I also want to try my hand at pouring and just love the window and would like to create something similar for Christmas Cards

RHCarpenter said...

Terry is the winner!!! It's fun to see a couple of you just keep trying - makes me feel wanted :)
So...
Terry, send me your mailing address at my email addy
RHCarpenter@gmail.com
and I'll get your painting in the mail - you want the window, right? - tomorrow.
I just mailed out Ann's today and Susan's should be at her house today.

Terry said...

I am jumping up and down with joy after winning the beautiful Window painting and will keep a close look out for the postman in around 6 - 8 days

Watercolors by Susan Roper said...

As the first one who has received a painting from Rhonda in this give-away, I have to submit that the painting, in person, is much better than on the online version. So....keep on trying everybody and I wish you well, Rhonda does send the paintings out as promised, and they are better in person than any online photo can show. I got mine today and love it!

Susan

Joan Sandford-Cook said...

Love these two Rhonda and thanks for describing how you created the window painting - most intriguing.

Watercolors by Susan Roper said...

Yesterday, I did receive my rose painting from the first of Rhonda's give-away and it is even better in person than online. So, those of you who want one of these great paintings, keep trying; it is worth the effort!

Susan

RHCarpenter said...

Susan, I'm so glad you like it IRL :) There is no way to get it just like the reality when you put it online but I try to get as close as possible with the colors, values, etc. Glad you are pleased :) How is your hubby doing??
Joan, thanks so much - to read more about this, check out Sandy Maudlin's blog (see my sidebar for her URL) - she created this technique and loves it.

Darn, I knew I should have kept posting and posting and posting! LOL! (But I had to go to work.) Lucky Terry!
