Time for a Giveaway!!

Well, when I had 4,000 visits to my blog I decided to give something away when I got to 5,000.  Well, I missed that mark, and so I decided I'd do it at 6,000.  Then, I missed that  one too, so decided I'd do it at 7,000.  The thing is, I missed that one too!  So, rather than wait any longer, I'm going to do it now.  I'm so appreciative of all the support, encouragement, helpful  suggestions, and generous comments all of you have left for me, that I want to give a little something back to you.

So, here it is.  It's a North Light book of Painting Techniques.  It covers a variety of media - oil, watercolor, and pastel, among others.  It has tons of really clear photos showing lots and lots of different techniques.  The scan I did of it isn't the best.  The book is a tad big for my scanner, so a bit of it is a bit blurry, but I think you can see enough of it clearly to give you the idea.  It measures about 9" x 9" and has 208 pages.

If you want to play, just leave me a comment on this post between now and March 13th.  On Sunday, March 14th, I'll use one of those on-line random number thingys to pick a winner!  So thanks again, and good luck!! 

 

p.s., sorry the post is so long, and oh, one other thing ... please leave only one comment!  Thanks

Me!Me!Me!Me!Me!Me!Me!...

And, by the way, I have the same question as E*Phi. How can I find out how many visitors I've had on Blogger?

Michelle said...

What a gorgeous book. As someone who struggles to get anything I paint to look remotely how I would like it, it would be a fascinating book to explore.
