One World One Heart Giveaway


The final
One World One Heart
Blog Open House is on. Bloggers from around the world offer a "door" prize which will be drawn February 17th. All you need to do is visit the blog of the participating artists, leave a comment and you will be in the draw to win their prize/s. Simple isn't it?

Followers of my blog have seen the process of creating this prize. It culminated in an unfortunate incident where a lot of water was spilt on the painting. Fortunately I managed to cover up what wasn't meant to be there. Unfortunately, what I didn't realise was the amount of water that had been spilt on the painting, saturating the board the canvas is mounted on. We have have extremely hot weather here, the board dried out today and some of the canvas has come away from the board making bubbles underneath the painting. The affected areas are the corners and top of the painting so the winner could frame if and camouflage the damage to a certain extent. It is very disappointing but only slightly detracts from the focal point of the painting.

So if you are interested in winning a slightly damaged, but still beautiful original acrylic/mixed media painting, please leave a comment below and a random draw will select the winner on February 17th.

Your painting is pretty and the damage only adds to the "story"! Would love to win it! Drop by my blog for a chance to win my prize too if you like! Patsy.paterno (at) gmail.com from

Michaele said...

I agree: knowing the damage story (and being able to see part of your creative process in your earlier post) adds to the character of your piece- I love the combination of inspiring text and beautiful imagery!

Wait, is that a delicious sounding recipe I see further down on your blog?

I do hope you'll visit me at my blogs, Kindergarten's 3 R's and Twigs and Tulle where I'm giving away pattern blocks and a cute mini-bunting! I'm looking forward to visiting more of your blog- Happy OWOH!

I love the beautiful colors of your blog which goes perfectly with the water incident. I believe every art piece is perfect in it's "imperfection" so that the water is just a magickal element that's been included in your gorgeous art piece. To me that makes it more special :)

Please enter me for the giveaway, I would love to win.

Thank you so much.

Brenda, even "damaged" your painting is superb. I went back through your postings and watched the progress of your lovely lassie. She's not damaged. She's like the rest of us: hiding a bit of imperfection under layers of bright beauty. And hey, better than those pesky locusts, huh? Have fun along the journey and I hope you find new friends and lots of blogs to wonder over. Tina

Hey girl,
I love your painting. Total crap about the water damage - I HATE when stuff like that happens. I totally do. I am a profesh at messing up my art because I am clumsy.
What else? I like the rest of your blog, and I hope that you fine OWOH rewarding. I too am offering a painting, and I am a bit apprehensive that it will go to a bad person or something - you know? So I hope yours goes to a good person.
Xx,

I saw your sketches of this lovely girl on Flickr earlier this week. She is so beautiful, even with a bit of canvas damage.
I had a mishap with my OWOH painting too! The acrylic matte medium I was going to use to seal the piece ate up the watercolor crayon, making it come off in chunks. Had to scrape it all off with my fingernail and repaint. ugh!
