Big news in the art world! My oil portrait (by Shaila Tenorio, visible on the right sidebar of my blog) was entered in the Northwest Washington Fair. I'm eagerly awaiting news from the artist about how it did—honestly, I'd be shocked an appalled if it was anything less than a blue ribbon winner. It's that beautiful. The painting usually hangs in FarmWife's living room like so:
What is that second picture, you ask? Well, I'll tell you!
We want to commission a portait of Arrietty too, of course, but that's an expensive proposition that might have to wait. In the meantime, the kind people at www.easycanvasprints.com gave me a beautiful print-on-canvas of Arrietty (her eye, actually) so that she would not be left out entirely. It is absolutely beautiful, and will hold the place very nicely until such a time as we can afford more original artwork.
Would YOU like a canvas print for your wall? I have two gift cards, valued at $10 each, to give away. To win one, simply post a photo on my facebook wall (www.facebook.com/fenwaybartholomule). The first gift card goes to the photo with the most "likes," the second to the photo of MY choice. It's that simple!
Ears to you,
