A giveaway because...

I have finally listed new works in my etsy shop!!!

So if you leave a comment at the end of this post by Friday midnight (New Zealand time) I will pick a winner first thing Saturday morning. The winner can pick any print from my shop and will get a few extra goodies.

Well, we had a very wet start to the weekend. It was nice to spend the day indoors mucking around (especially playing with 'ello') and our gardens really needed the rain. The above pic was the result of some of my mucking around... it isn't quite finished yet. I am calling this series of works "Nowhere I'd rather be..." as this is how I feel when I'm painting them.

I am thinking I might spend March doing some works to take with me to England to see whether there is a gallery or cafe or something that might be interested in selling them.

I love your art. It is so fresh and fun!

I'd sure love to win one.

I hope being the first comment isn't a bad thing.

Hey Katherine!
Glad to see you are continuing with the darker blue! I like it!

I love that you are going to take some of your work to England with you. That would be so great if you got a couple of shows while you were there :)

I am loving your girl's new hair styles, oh and the sentiment behind the pictures. Gosh, I am so envious, off to Paris and England, can't wait to see how that inspires your paintings!

Hi Katherine

Which galleries sell your work in NZ? I love the tent piece a few blogs ago - reminds me of summer and sleeping out on the back lawn as a kid.

I always like your girls which I know from Etsy, they are so happy and peaceful somehow, remind me of childhood when life was so simple ;-)... It is nice to follow how your girls are slowly changing now, leaving the cap behind ;-)... Good luck with your artwork and your life, I would love to receive the giveaway..

Hi Katherine,

I love these new paintings and I admire the way you are willing to experiment with your work.

I love the changes in the faces of the girls but also love that the whimsical feeling remains.

Your paintings are so serene and warm. They are such a delight to look at as I sit here, curled up on my couch in freezing NYC. I love that I can see your beautiful creations from across the world. Thanks for sharing!

Hi Katherine,
It is nice to see all of your lovely prints in your shop. I am lucky enough to own an original of yours that I bought ages ago. One of three tall castles, bought in Ahurri one rainy weekend.

Your trip sounds like great fun!!

Leanne Ellis said...

Hey Katherine! Thanks for popping by the blog! Your work is looking SO beautiful! I can definitely imagine some galleries in the UK snapping up your artwork!!! In response to your question on a previous post of mine, yes the corner elements were added digitally, in photoshop. :) Please count me in for your giveaway!!
