Celebrating 1,000 Blog Posts with a Painting Giveaway!

“A purposeful act or extension of kindness
to another is never wasted,
for it always resides in the hearts of all
involved in a chain of love.”
~ Molly Friedenfeld

I wanted to do something special to commemorate my 1,000th blog post here. Since I started blogging over eight years ago, the online landscape has really changed. My SandySandyArt.com art blog has grown and evolved along the way. To celebrate, I would like to "pay it forward" and offer a giveaway of an original painting. Pictured below is a selection of some recent black, ceramic tiles, hand painted with alcohol inks by yours truly. Some are done with stencils, some using canned air and some are a combination of both. They come ready to exhibit, with hooks on the back for hanging and an acrylic easel for table top display.

Today's winner is a caring, positive, generous lady who has paid it forward, many times over, to others in the community. The first person I would like to nominate is Molly Gummerson.  She's a busy mom and artist who always finds time to help out at the local art center in Medford, NJ, MAC. Molly is unselfish with her time and her talents. Thank you Molly for your kindness, recent referral and your altruistic spirit. Congratulations! Please be the first to pick out the tile you would like to own, then email me at: sandy@sandysandy.com with the tile letter and description along with your mailing address or to make pick up arrangements.

Here is a photo of our inking group that was here over the weekend for the St. Paddy's Day Workshop. You can see that we were all having a grand ole time!

Below is the work produced by students here on Sunday. I am impressed with such a high caliber of results even though three of the participants were complete newbies! Everyone was helpful and encouraging to each other and so much fun and progress was experienced by all.
