After 10 days without painting, this did not come easy. I love these little flying saucer onions and will take another crack at them.

I tried to get Wendell to pick the winner of the painting give away yesterday morning. I was all ready with the camera when someone walked up our front steps and Wendell made a bee line for the stairs and was unsettled for the rest of the morning. No way could I coax him down. So this morning we did it and the winner is Janet McCarthy of Kingston, MA. Congratulations, Janet!

WINNER: Janet McCarthy of Kingston, MassachusettsJust to illustrate the power of the Blogosphere, I hit a milestone Sunday when my profile view turned over to 10,000. In January of 2007 it was 148. This blog has connected me in a way that nothing else can. To celebrate I'm going to give away this 5x5 painting of a white carnation on Gessoboard to someone, just for commenting on this post. I will put all the names into a 'hat' and have my hubby draw the winner on Friday. If you are not a registered blogger, make sure you leave your first name in your comment and send an email to me at WENDL15@verizon.net with "painting giveaway" in the subject line. I will include a tiny easel to set it upon.
Good Luck and thanks for all of your support!! Merry Christmas.

I tell people that every painting cannot be fabulous and that there are lessons to be learned from each one. So, Instead of being so quick to wipe this off I'll add it to the lesson pile and try again.

By the time you read this post, this painting will have been wiped for a fresh start. I admit that it has some good points, but it doesn't meet my expectations. You win some and you lose some ;)

I have a 'thing' for white pottery because it reflects the light around it and is never really white. Today, I stocked up on Christmas 'props' at the Dollar Store and browsed the produce section for intriguing items like white asparagus. 'Tis the season, so expect more paintings of white stuff (could even be snow) and Christmas 'tchotchkes'. I love that word ;)
