Merry Christmas Everyone!

Here in North West Arkansas we only received a few flurries, so i have to think of the movie we watched this week, White Christmas!!!!!  It was so beautiful and enchanting i just had to share.  Kudos to all who woke up to white blankets of snow.  Why is it that the dream of a white Christmas never goes away! Even at 36 years of age i awoke to the hope of the white stuff on the ground!!!

Well, since i was a brave heart and battled the crowds yesterday i totally forgot to post the winner of the painting.  So, without further ado, from a random drawing heartland Honda is the big winner!!!!!! Jrod and Tina may email with preference to where to send the painting!!!

Winner!!!!Heartland Honda you will receive an email!!!

Since it is Christmas i am offering prints of the painting to everyone else who would like one....just email me with addresses and ill get an 8 x 10 print in the mail!!

Merry Christmas everyone!!!

When in Rome

Its nice that a painting can take me back to a place i love so much.  With the news of a bomb in Rome this week and watching old movies it seemed that there had to be a collaboration between the two.  I have been mesmerized by old movies, the glamor, the class, the staging that all correlates to painting itself.  Well, i hope you enjoy this visually as much as i enjoyed taking a trip back to my past!

Also, one more thing, today is the last day to enter to win the Christmas giveaway painting, Cake Anyone!!!!!!!!  Rush and go enter....winner will be announce tomorrow morning!
