Free Birthday Giveaway - Day #7 - SOLD

Pin It
"Full Bloom"
Oil, 6" x 6"
Sold.

Today's lucky winner of the $100 gift certificate was Dana Cooper!! Congrats Dana.
Well ... today is the last day of my giveaway. Although I will be very sad because I am afraid all of these many wonderful comments on my blog may cease to exist once I stop giving away freebies ... NOT! This has been a very fun seven days and I think I will sporadically offer free things every few weeks. So don't forget about my blog!
Today's gift is a free painting. Post here and you will be entered in to the drawing along with all of the other folks who commented on my blog this past week. The painting is called "The Calm Before the Storm" and is a 6" x 6" framed original oil painted with a palette knife.

 "The Calm Before the Storm"

I hope you win!!!!

I absolutely love your sailboat paintings, Leslie. We had a sailboat for many years and your paintings bring back all the fun we had. Now that it is almost over, are we allowed to say 'HAPPY BIRTHDAY'. This is a great way to celebrate and one I will remember when my (dreaded) birthday rolls around.

Beautiful painting and a lovely end to a great week of giveaways. I always read your blog and wish I could paint like you! Like Carol, I hope it is okay to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY today!

loving the orange flowers. I think the saying goes...2 happiest days of owning a boat, day you buy it & the day you sell it. I think the 3rd should be the day you win a Leslie Saeta boat painting.

Happy Birthday Leslie! I love your blog! I check it every day for your beautiful, colorful paintings. Now if only I could figure out how to get the same effects in my pastel paintings. :) Thanks for adding bright color to my day.
Best wishes for a wonderful day.

I think "Full Bloom" is my fave flower painting so far - of course, I always love the sailboats. Happy Birthday!

Don't worry about losing followers, Leslie. Your work is too good not to check on at least 2-3 times a week :) I haven't been a winner yet and keep hoping...so one more day!
BTW, Happy Birthday Week :) You've let us all celebrate it with you with your give-aways.

I am torn between your flowers and your boats as my favorites. Or your landscapes or city scapes. LOL

I spent many years living on Galveston Island. My family moved away but water and boats always make me think of those wonderful days.

Dana Cooper said...
