4TH FREE TREE FRIDAY GIVEAWAY

"The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes 
of others only a green thing that stands in the way. 
Some see nature all ridicule and deformity 
and some scarcely see nature at all. 
But to the eyes of the man of imagination, 
nature is imagination itself."
~ William Blake

Announcing FREE TREE FRIDAY!

“There is no wrong way 
to perform an act of kindness.”
~ Catherine Ryan Hyde


The Giving Tree I

~~~~~~ 4.5 x 6", Original Alcohol Inks on Yupo Paper ~~~~~~
N.F.S.
Giveaway - 4  - 4 - 14

I recently became excited by an interesting post on facebook about a worldwide movement, the Art Abandonment Group. The idea is to secretly abandon small art pieces in random public places. A note attached to the package explains that it is a gift with a mention of it's origin and contact information. See more about this compelling movement here.

I am looking forward to announcing the winners of my Yupo Paper Art Giveaway for Artists on April 1st! So far there are 85 entries into the drawing. Six pads of Yupo paper (so far) and three original paintings or painting lessons will be awarded to the lucky winners. If you are an artist interested in winning some Yupo paper, art lessons or original art, be sure to check out the rules and enter using the link above! I am really enjoying the excitement of the giveaway and I don't want it to end on April first.

SOO, I decided to launch FREE TREE FRIDAY during the month of April! Each Friday I'll pick someone through RandomNumber.org to receive a free original tree painting by yours truly. Here is my first FREE TREE offering. All you have to do to win it, is comment below this post or under the original post on my facebook art page and include the words, "Free tree." or "I'm in!" Open to everyone worldwide! Good luck and pay it forward.
