It's Paint Party Friday and the first of our summer long giveaways!

Hi everyone! It's been a whirlwind of a week... First and foremost, Kelly turned me on to a new-ish blog called "Paint Party Friday" (HOLLA)...and I love it. Every Friday you can link to something that you have painted the previous week...PLUS you get to cruise bloglandia and meet other painters too. How's like an online art opening. I'm in! Please pass the cheese.. I can't wait to blog hop this weekend and see the other paintings!

I'm working with Golden OPEN paints these days...the OPEN paints are allowing me a lot heavier drag than the fluid acrylics and I am diggin what I can do with those. The painting pictured above is 18x24" and hanging in the living room.

So remember what I mentioned last week? It's time! We're not paying our normal marketing channels at this honor of our sale of over 2000 classes, we are giving the marketing money to YOU! Everyone who leaves a comment on this post now through June 1 will  be automatically entered to win a $30 electronic gift certificate to Dick Blick! (Yes..they ship, I am sorry I cannot control the price of shipping internationally..but $30 is better than no dollars, right?) So leave me a comment, be sure to enter your email address into the comment field and I'll pick one winner on June 2nd. June 3rd I will announce the first winner and be back to put up another giveaway! One giveaway every 2 weeks...all summer long! Hooray!

(One entry per person.)

Thank you so much for stopping in...I look forward to hearing from you!
