One World One Heart Giveaway!!

Blessings and greetings of Love and warm welcome to the fifth and final OWOH gathering of bloggers and art lovers from around the world, created by the lovely...
Lisa Swifka of A Whimsical Bohemian.

This is my 3rd year participating in this event, which has brought me in contact with so many other like-minded artists, and has been a source of inspiration and fun. My blog, Rusted Wings, is a journal and art-space for me and my 6 daughters, who are all amazing artists!

I was inspired to create a piece specifically for this OWOH event as my giveaway. I thought of the 'winged' theme, and thought of the passage that has recently taken place for me as each of my daughters one by one, has flown the nest. Though my youngest is away at boarding school and comes home for only school breaks, I am currently an "empty-nester" (though some of the girls still drop in daily for lunch, supper or spend the night occasionally =).

"Little bird~Still Voice within, lead me and guide me" is my prayer for us all.

If you'd like to enter into the giveaway for this 9x12 Original mixed media on 100% cotton Fabriano watercolor paper, please leave your comment on this post with contact info. and the winner will be drawn on Feb. 17th. May it be a joyful, inspiring journey as you each wing your way through blogland!!

Told her about OWOH and she wrote back that you won her gift the second year she participated and was reminded how much she enjoyed this and would participate again this weird is that? you and I are connected my dear...and how blessed are we?

Well now.
It is vastly unfair and a total bunch of crap how foxy you and your daughters are.
Nice of you to make me feel like a damn toad this morning.
Now you owe me that artwork for pointing out my ugliness.
I will fight your beautiful daughters for it.
Watch out girls!
While your page was loading, I thought the banner said, "busted wings"
Now, I live in Louisiana (I haven't always) and have heard more people say 'busted' than I'd care to admit.
I DIED when I thought that such an elegant looking woman would name her blog 'busted wings'
So, now that we've got That all cleared up, I'll graciously accept my prize now.
after that we can be friends, but only online. You will Not move out of my laptop or visit me in real life because I only ever want to be around people who are not as attractive as I am.
Surely you understand.
So. be my friend and give me that damn prize and please stay in my laptop.

My children's book is a process. It is in a rewrite. Then I will send out the dummy again. I got a nice rejection with good comments on the illustrations...but the story needed a little help..but was tweeking and sending out will happen.
Thanks so your kind encouragement.

I'm spending this cold and snow filled morning jumping around trying to meet some of you awesome bloggers who catch my eye, you are one of them. This piece really spoke to me, she's gorgeous and I love how it makes me feel looking at it on the screen.

I would absolutely love to win this so that I could take it into my classroom and show it to my students. I am always looking for ways to inspire them to do their best work. I think your art is inspiring.

Hello from snowy Oklahoma!

Your work is stunning.

I'm also participating so stop by if you wish :)

I love your work! It's my dream someday to be able to make a living from my dolls, but alas it has not happened yet. In the meantime I keep plugging away making dolls in my free time.

I hope you are having a good OWOH so far! I'm participating as well, so head over to my blog if you would like!

darling abigail, first let me thank you for participating again in OWOH and for offering your exquisite artwork. BUT foremost I thank you for you...your beautiful soul and heartfelt nature drew me to you from the very start. There is a light inside you that no matter what shines through with each word, each photo of you. That's the beauty of this event..discovery of kindred souls. I would love to come to Montana...I can envision sitting with you over coffee or wine or whatever and having hours of heartfelt talks and laughter. AND I am sure I could gleen a thing or two of artistic inspiration as well. What is the closest airport? you think I'm kidding?
Enjoy this flight around the globe and let's stay in touch.
