A Few of My Favorite Things Giveaway/ The Brush Off

 

Now that you’ve decided how you are going to use that beautiful blue Ball jar if you’re the winner, it’s time to guess what’s next on the agenda for  a Few of My Favorite Things Giveaway.

HINT:

It’s not Eddie the Cat.
Negotiations fell through late last night  after I mentioned that the phrase “a brush with greatness” was not a reference to me getting to brush his coat…!

(I’ve been getting the brush off ever since which means I have had a very peaceful day 🙂 )

My Favorite Things Giveaway for today is my very favorite brush.  Although I have several brands that I like, one particular brush is my BFF and is responsible for the brushwork you see in most of my work, including the above paintings of Mr. Ed.

If you’d like to brush up on your brushwork using my favorite brush (sorry for the brush puns….it’s almost over 😉 just enter below.

 

More fun giveaways coming your way that include my favorite wet painting carrier, my favorite color– caribbean blue, favorite twinkling watercolors and more.

    In truth, if I had such a wonderful new brush, I would paint a field of bright colored flowers with a small creek rippling at the edge of the field and of course, a brilliant, wispy sky made for dreaming. xReplyCancel

  • Dreama - December 21, 2013 - 11:40 pm

    You make me smile with all these ideas just bubbling over of things you are going to paint.

    (It’s a busy time. I am trying to wrap gifts with two Eds in the house—and not making very good progress for some odd reason…..
    So I retreat and read your loving, humorous, happy commentary and feel ready to have another go at things).

    Makes me think of the Dr. Seuss books….oh the places you will paint..er I mean go 😉 !!

    Hugs!
