Giveaway to Celebrate Three Years Blogging

To celebrate the third anniversary of my blog and say thank you to all of my readers, I'm giving away this collage and stenciled piece that I created in Judy Wise's "Stencil Your Family" class a couple of years ago. It's unified with an encaustic layer of wax. Judy helped me start this blog and gave me lots of encouragement.

The stencil was created from a 1940's photograph of my mother fishing off Florida's east coast. It's called "Gone Fishing". She made a pretty good catch with a fish that size!

Make a comment on this post and I will put your name in a hat. Friday, April 30th, I will pull a name from the hat and post the winner's name. If I do not have your email address, you can contact me at ppmcnamee@gmail.com. Join in the fun and celebrate this anniversary.

Keeping a blog helps me chronicle my artwork, creative adventures and travels. Along the way, I've made friends, learned a lot and enjoy the exchanges and inspiration blog-land offers.

Congratulations, Paula, on a fabulous blog! As you know you helped me and many others get our own blogs started, and for that I am grateful.

I remember when you first retired and were starting to do a lot more art. It's been a pleasure and an inspiration to see your drawing, painting, bead work, fabric art develop. You've inspired me to sketch and paint!

Looking forward to seeing more.

Very Fondly
