Wow! This year has gone by FAST!! It's time once again for the One World One Heart blog giveaway! I loved this so much last year, so there was no question as to whether or not I would do it again! A wonderful blogger at A Whimsical Bohemian started this a few years ago and has decided to run it again! Yay!
My name's Deedra and I live in Canada. My giveaway is this little Fairy Gnome that I've made with paper clay and mixed media. All you have to do is leave a little comment on this post and he coould be yours! It all starts tonight at Midnight and the winner will be notified on February 17th. The winner will be chosen by way of random number generator. Please join in the fun and run a giveaway of your own! You meet so many fun, creative people from around the world! Thanks for visiting!
I start work tomorrow...that means less time for art. Much less time. So, I'm trying to squeeze it all in today. Even though I'm in the art department at work, I won't be able to paint what I choose, so I just wanted to do one more little painting before work started :)
This is an 8x8 acrylic and mixed media on board, titled WISH!!!
I found this little nymph shivering at my back door this morning. When I slid it open, she scurried around the corner and hid. I coaxed her out gently and told her that I meant her no harm. After about an hour of building trust, she slowly made her way toward me. I put my hand out and she climbed on, very cautiously. I brought her in the house and sat her on the biggest greenest leaf my plant had to offer. She smiled, and said thank you. I made her some tea and served it to her in one of my daughter's Barbie tea cups. She sipped slowly, drinking in the warmth, and soon fell asleep. I placed a tiny blanket on her and let her dream in peace.
When I came back an hour later, I found my plant bursting with flowers in all the colours of the rainbow. The little fairy looked up, reached out her hand and said, 'Pleased to meet you. I'm Delilah'.
