For months now I've been toying with the idea of having a painting giveaway, egged on by Jen at Sprite's Keeper. With my upcoming move I've decided to give away this painting:
Since, I've never done this before I'll try to make it easy and fair for everyone though I make no guarantees.
I do have to say that I rarely give my paintings away ( it's kind of like giving away a child or letting them move out of the house. You never really trust what is going to happen to them once they leave the nest. Plus, what if someone doesn't want it later on? then what? It's not like they can move home. Jesus, am I over thinking this whole thing?). I want them to go to someone that will really enjoy them. I'm just like that fretful parent watching their child head off for college. The loss of control is terrible.
So in the words of my friend Sher: "leave a comment about a favourite artist, piece of art, if they ever dated a dude named Art, are big fans of Garfunkle, you know, what do you call a man with no arms and no legs hanging on a wall..art....." I will use a scientific method of random generation with whatever boy is in the house pulling a name out of a hat. (This will be the hardest choice since I have tons of hats).
One entry person please. Contest ends on Friday April 3rd.
BTW, this painting is unframed. I'll paint the edges so if you don't want to frame it it won't look so stupid. It has also been curing for about 3 weeks so it should be good to go but I wouldn't varnish it for another 4 months. You don't have to at all but varnishing it will make it so it won't fade. Also this painting is 16" x 20" which is a nice standard frame size. You'd think I planned it that way.
