Cottage Hill Original Oil Painting Giveaway!

04 October 2010

This Giveaway Is Closed!



One of my recent blogging friends Lindy from Cottage Hill has been gracious enough to host a giveaway for us!  

This is especially exciting to me because she is giving away an original oil painting!! Uh yeah- I think that is awesome.  She just opened her new etsy store and she is letting you choose which painting you would like to win.

RADDISH Small Practice Painting by Lindy 9x6

Here is a little info about Lindy:

I was the kid who, given the assignment of creating an art project with dried beans, peas and rice,  I chose to make an elephant out of rice, gluing each tiny, itty, bitty, piece of rice on -- one at a time.  Yes,  I was a serious artist in the 4th grade.  

I still love to create things.  I love to sew and craft and build…and I love to paint.   

A while back, I committed to painting  “100 small paintings“.  Not one a day (like some very dedicated painters do) but just 100 of these small paintings in all, ever.  This is my kind of approach.  Not too much pressure so I can keep it fun. 

The small paintings are painted with oils and range in size from 6”x 6” to 4”x 10”.  I try to keep the subjects lighthearted and not take myself too serious.  I paint on a variety of surfaces depending on the subject and the level of detail.  

I entered bloggerville a couple of months ago with Cottage Hill.  I’m technically challenged so I felt I’d dodged a nervous breakdown when it was all said and done.  Now I’ve opened an Etsy store (I’m getting the hang of things) and I’ve listed some of the paintings there.   

Hope you enjoy looking around and that you’ll come back again soon…

Wanna see some examples?  I thought so.
