Love painting Leslie! It is very generous of you to run this give away for twelve days no less! Thank you for all the FB tips :)

Leslie,
Here is another tip leftover from yesterday: rarely, would you want to take your artist wife to a movie matinee just to save $4. You are depriving her of sunlight she needs to create something she might sell
for a lot more than that! Soooo...go to movies after dark and forego the"bargain" matinee! She will like you a lot more if she's not focused on what she could be creating!

Barbara Pask said...

Love this giveaway idea and thank you for doing it. Merry Christmas!

I smell another facebook show coming up:) Thanks for the link, I will definitely be utilizing some of these tips. Love the 12 days of Christmas idea, you're so clever. I wracked my brain yesterday over the organizational tips, and came up with nothing. I'm sooooo disorganized, can't wait to hear the show, I could certainly use some help:)

I've been going back and forth for quite some time about using FB. With these tips and your encouraging words I'm leaning more toward using it. I listen to yours and Dreama's radio show and have learned so much and will do more in the marketing end of art beginning next year......just over 2 weeks YIKES!! :-)

Greetings from chilly CT Leslie! I'd love to win your cards. Just finished listening to B.T.R. about getting organized AND also played back the previous week about- finding your creative voice- both really timely info. as I plan my year for 2011!! Thanks for sharing all the great scoop!

Leslie, Great painting! Love what you can do in 36 square inches. What size/type of knife do you use to do such neat work?

OM Geez.......thank goodness Johnny walked in. He helped me find where to post a comment. I am so happy. I hope it is the correct place. Anaways, I find the palet knife technique interesting and love the texture. On a personal note, I hope you are having fun and getting ready for the holidays and enjoying all of the kids being home!

Love your artwork. Do you use brushes or knives? Almost looks like you use knives. I love knife paintings and have tried quite a few. Susan Hogan Girard

Merry Christmas,Leslie. Really learning a lot about facebook since I have been involved in your "Twelve Days of Christmas". I think I have posted comments where there are no place to post.
Your menu sounds amazing!! I am so curious how you became such a wonderful cook and when you have the time to cook. You sound like a very busy woman that is having a lot of fun!
