I began my blog on November 12, 2006.  That means I've been doing this for 5 years.  Wow, that is a long time and many who have been blogging that long are thinking about quitting or backing off or just tired of the whole experience.  I think I'll continue until I get burned out :)

Here is my first blog (saves you the trouble of searching back to that date):

To celebrate 5 years of blogging, I'm having another give-away of a crow painting.  The only thing you have to do to enter the drawing is:

Send a comment to this posting saying, Count me me! or Add my name! or Me Me Me!! :) and I'll put your name in the hat for the drawing on Sunday.  Whoever wins will have to send me their mailing info via my gmail address - that's all you have to do.

And what is the painting?  Well.....I'm going to let the winner choose between these two:

Rain Crow
Watercolor on a fourth sheet (11" x 15")
of 140# cold press paper.

Curious Crow
A watercolor monotype print on printing paper  (it's a softer paper than cold press or hot press). 

The print is on a fourth sheet (11" x 15")
but should be cropped down to about 9" x 12" to show the print info, title and signature. 

The winner in the drawing gets to choose which one floats their boat!

Good luck!

Mememe! Count ME in, please! Congrats on 5 years too. I still enjoy blogging myself and it has been three years for me, though I recently closed the old blog and started anew elsewhere (for a specific reason having nothing to do with the blog host). I sure know which of these two pieces I'd choose if the choice becomes mine! Thank you for your big heart!

You can surely count me in; as a matter of fact you can count me many times if you want.

I'm a big fan (subscriber to your blog) and would really love to have one of your crow paintings.

You and I must have had the same idea in 2006, except my first post was on 10/11/06! I hadn't realized that it is past my blogoversary! I do hope I and others I follow don't get burned out on these blogs, they are an important part of my personal culture! When it seems I can't keep up, I generally just don't post for a week then I get to where I am missing everyone and start up again and all is well.

Thanks for your fun/interesting/informational/soul-searching blog. Love it!

Of course, my mentioning to please put my name in the running for one of the crow paintings is secondary to the above kudos!

Congrats, Rhonda and please keep going!

How time flies, doesn't it? Congratulations on five years of writing and painting. I look forward to the next five.

Wooo hooo! Five years! What an achievement! Please, please, please count me in (hope I'm not too late) Here's to your next five years of blogging.

Count me in! please Rhonda, both those crows are beautiful. Five years wow!

Congratulations for sticking to it. That is a long time.
I don't think I've done it for two whole years yet.... can't remember.
