The Twelve Days of Christmas - Day Eleven!

Pin It

Wow, only one day until my Twelve Days of Christmas Giveaway is over! I can't believe it. 

Some of you may have heard that I am doing another "30 Paintings in 30 Days" challenge. It starts on January 1st and all of you are invited to join me! We are going to paint 30 paintings in 30 days and you can post your painting on my blog if you choose to participate. It will be fun and it is a fantastic way to start of the new year. I think it's a great chance to try some new things and also get in the habit of painting more often. Think about it. Give it a try. What's the worst thing that can happen? Perhaps you paint 15 paintings and after 15 days you can't continue. At least you will have painted 15! 

Some of you may want to decide on a theme for your thirty paintings. That's great. You can also  choose a size and paint that size every day. Or paint 30 value studies. Maybe you will paint 30 larger versions of paintings you have already done. Or paint 30 paintings that each represent a month of the year (then you can print a 2014 calendar right away!) Maybe you want to paint the same painting but just vary it each day. It's up to you! Just make sure you are ready by the first day of January ...

Today's giveaway is your own personal copy of my cookbook!

It's titled "Old, New, Borrowed and blue" and it has every single one of my favorite recipes. Every item that I serve at our Christmas party is in the cookbook and I promise, you will love it. I even have the cookbook in my studio waiting to ship!

To qualify for the Eleventh Day Giveaway all you need to do is share your favorite art book. Share them here or on my Facebook pages. I can't wait to read your submissions!

The winner of the Day Ten free workshop giveaway is Angeline-Marie Martinez. Congrats! Be sure to email me so we can get you all signed up for one of my South Pasadena workshops.

Be sure and sign up to receive my blog updates so you will be the first to know about the 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways!
