  1. Hi Sandy, we just found your blog, coming over from Life at Golden Pines.

    WE would love to win this painting. It is beautiful.

    WE LOVE snow and love hummingbirds and love that you have put them together in such a spirited way.

    But more important than winning, we are just excited to be able to get to know you as an artist. So we are off to check out past posts so we can see more of your work.

    Thanks for the joy
    Bert and My Vickie

  2. Sandy, congradulations on your 500th posting!

  3. I'd love to win this painting becaus I haven't had a new one from you since 2002. Further, I'm a huge fan of the hummingbird - I started putting out feeders for them with my grandmother back when I was a child in East Texas and to this day I still hang them at my home, wherever that may be!

  4. Be sure to leave a comment here mentioning the giveaway or the painting to be eligible for the contest! Remember, if you are a follower, you get 3 entries into the drawing with your comment. :-D Good Luck everyone!

  5. Oh he is sooo beautiful! I wish they could stick around in the winter. I hope you had a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

  6. I heard about you and your art through my facebook friend, Jennifer MacNeill Traylor. I would love to win your hummingbird watercolor as Christmas was my mother's favorite holiday and the hummingbird her favorite bird. It was like good karma and dejavu! Your work is beautiful!

  7. I want to win because....well, honestly, your painting just makes me happy. My first thought was to gift it to my mother in law, who LOVES hummers...but I don't think I could part with it! In the depths of winter's chill, this little hummer makes me feel warm inside!
