GIVE-AWAY NUMBER 1 OF 5

As noted, today is the first day of the 5-day giveaway (there are a LOT of rhyming words in that sentence! ha ha). Each day I will post one small painting to give away to someone who posts on the blog (number to be determined anew each day). For today, the 1st poster wins this little painting. So post NUMBER 1 wins today.


It is a small, postcard-sized (4" x 6") watercolor painting on 140# coldpress paper - a painting of the northern lights.
You will get a surprise addition to your mailing but I won't tell you what it is - something arty :)

I hope you enjoy the painting and the surprise that will be included in your mailing.

I will mail the give-aways out this week once I have the winners' mailing addresses (I will contact you for that if I don't already have it).

NOTE: This week only, I will hold off approving posts until I get the requisite number to have a winner so don't worry if you don't see your post - I will be waiting to post them all at one time once I receive the numbered post I'm looking for each day. Good Luck! And once you have won, you are out of the running for future paintings this week - let's spread the fun around!

I also wanted to say that I came here via Bill Jones blog. I loved your comment.

The Winner Is: Carol King!
Carol, aren't you glad you came over?? I had to think a minute about who is Bill Jones (I never think of his last name! ha ha)!
I will contact you and see if I can find a personal email to ask for your mailing info :) There will be this small painting and a little something extra in the mailing :) Congrats and I hope you enjoy as much in person.

This is great! I am off work until Jan 4th - this means that I will have time to post everyday and try my luck....
All my best to you Rhonda.

I know I am not the first poster,darn, but I want to tell you that it is a beautiful painting.

Teresa said...

Beautiful explosion of color, Carol is a lucky girl!

Vicki Greene said...

Well, I already know that I didn't win but I still want to tell you that it is a neat painting. Great color choices!

Carol King said...

YAY! I'm so excited, I'm going to email you right now! What a nice surprise. Thanks!

RHCarpenter said...

Sorry you all couldn't win this one - but keep trying since we're going to be doing this every day this week, running up to New Year's Eve day :) Good luck to everyone.

As usual, your generosity shines out. Well done Carol for being the winner of the first art gift from Rhonda.
Must mention Rhonda that I love what you did to 'power up' your yellow flower. Great advice Sandy but brave artist for putting into action!!!
Have a great New Year celebration.

RHCarpenter said...

Thanks so much, Joan. Sandy really showed me where just a little push-pull would get it closer to what I wanted it to be :) I'm glad it turned out a winner - being mostly a warm painting, it's not one of my favorites! - but it's not bad :)

Sandy Maudlin said...

RATS. I'm away from the computer for two days and miss a chance at your northern lights painting. Lucky Carol. Thinking about you a lot, Rhonda.

RHCarpenter said...

Hi, Sandy! Keep trying - I'll be posting one each day until the
31st, if all goes as planned (which means, I have 4 paintings ready but not the 5th! but I have an excuse with Mom being in the hospital and being there all day each day). I may be able to come up with a 5th tomorrow...I hope! ha ha

Carol King said...

Rhonda,

I received my painting (and other goodies) and wanted to let you know how much I LOVE it.

This was a real treat and so much fun. Thanks again!

RHCarpenter said...

YAY! Carol, I'm glad it reached you and that you like it and the other extra goodies enclosed :) Have a great 2010 and hope to see you back here sometime.
