Fan Appreciation Giveaway!

UPDATE: Comments are now closed, and the winner will be announced later on Wednesday...stay tuned!

I’ve decided to do something special this week in honor of everyone who has supported me, encouraged me, bought originals or prints, sent me emails, tattooed my work onto themselves, etc. etc! Being a self-employed artist is not easy, but every single one of you has made it possible for me. And for that I will be eternally grateful!

So! Here is your chance to win one of my painting studies (below). Even though it's unfinished, it's one of my favorites. As you can see, her desk-mates will be sad to see her go :)

'Gasp!' study
5" x 7"
Acrylic on clayboard

To Enter: Leave a comment on this post with your name and email address, so I can contact you if you win (I won’t send you spam, promise!). It's entirely optional to leave a personal message, but I would greatly appreciate it :)

The cut-off time for comments will be Tuesday, October 11th when the clock strikes midnight (PST). I will then select a winner at random, and congratulate him/her in a new post the following day.

May randomness favor you, and thank you all so very much!
