Pay it Forward

My Friend, Blue Sharpie has invited everyone to take part in this Pay It Forward challenge. I think it is a great idea and am willing to play! I will send a handmade gift/thingy/something to the first 3 people (Sorry mainland USA only - due to postage issues) who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this "Pay It Forward" exchange. I don't know what that gift will be, and you may not receive it tomorrow or next week, but you will receive it within 30 days, that is my promise! The only thing you have to do in return is "Pay It Forward" by making the same promise on your blog with a link back to me. So basically, if you comment I'll send you something crafty that I'll make! Once you sign up, copy and paste the above paragraph on your blog, and three other lucky people will be the recipients of your handmade work. You must post this on your blog to be eligible.

Are you in? I will be checking for the post and link back to my blog!

PS the Comment from my Nana doesn't count.


Acrylic on Illustration Board - 20" by 30"

I have been struck by the muse. This painting seemed to come alive and speak to me. I was working in an all warm toned palette when it said, "I need some blue." I opened my drawer of blue paint and the painting yelled "There, that delicious teal; it is just what I want."

So I obliged. WOW. Not much of the teal but it commands the painting surface like a diva commands the stage.

I have to tell you, this looks better in person.
