"Resting for the Holidays"
Oil, 6" x 6".
Merry Christmas! My Twelve Days of Christmas giveaway has come to a close and I want to thank each of you that were kind enough to join me in celebrating the holidays these past 12 days. Yesterday we had 73 suggestions as to ways we can all give back and help our fellow artists in the coming year. I will be sharing many of these wonderful ideas (along with details on the January 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge) on this week's "Artists Helping Artists" show. Be sure to tune in Thursday at 9:00 am PST, 12:00 noon EST. If you would like to participate in the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge you can sign up here on my blog starting tomorrow, December 26th. Also, be sure to sign up to receive my Daily blog posts as well so you don't miss anything!
The winner of the final giveaway (which is one of my original paintings) is Teresa Telehany! Congratulations! Email me so we can finalize all of the details and I can get your mailing address.
Finally, for those of you that participated in the Twelve Days of Christmas, there was a reason behind every "request" you had to do to participate. I tried really hard to get all of your artwork shown and publicized on my blog. My stats for the last few days averaged a 1000 % increase in viewership so I think it worked! For those of you that went back and found a favorite painting or blog post, make a mental note of what you liked! Try to incorporate everything you saw and liked in to your own artwork. And most importantly, take one of the suggestions of how you can help your fellow artists and make a point to incorporate it in to your plans for 2013. Life really is about giving back and helping our fellow artists.
Happy holidays. Merry Christmas. And thanks for making my life so complete!
