An Announcement and a New Drawing!


Tag for Kristin (Christy's daughter)


Once Upon a Time--8 x 10 Mixed Media Piece

Here is an 8 x 10 mixed media piece on canvas entitled "Once Upon a Time" that I just completed...Predominantly robin’s egg blue in color, it was made with commercial papers and embellishments, as well as scattered sheet music from the Graphics Fairy. Made with gel medium and gesso. It includes tulle, lace, twine, and cheese cloth. (It is seen here situated on a black metal picture stand with black swirls, but it comes by itself--no stand included.) It is signed and dated on the back.

We all know the importance of home and how it is to be cherished.

If you would like for your name to be put in a drawing to win it, just let me know by putting your name here in a comment. Actually, I have not decided when I will pick a winner, but it will be some time this week!

I am linking this up to The Graphics Fairy--Hugs to Karen!

Also, the winners of the "Beautiful" Bible tags for today's Link Party are: Patti at Fill My Cup with Beauty and Concetta

But, there's ONE more thing....I made a surprise tag for Christy's teenage daughter--congratulations Kristin!

THIS DRAWING IS NOW CLOSED.



Hugs,
Cindy

  19. What a gorgeous piece, Cindy. Your art is so "YOU". I thought I was following your blog, but now I found this one (haha). I'm getting lost in blogland. As IM GIRL said above, anyone would be honored to win this piece. It shows your grateful and generous spirit. It carries a part of you with it.
