yay giveaway! :D

I thought I’d share a few of the paintings I created in my square-a-day project (see background story here), to celebrate the fact that I actually completed it, and to thank everyone one for traveling with me and encouraging me on this journey of rediscovering the joy of paint! :D

Before I explain the details of the giveaway (first ever! :D) Here’s another look at all the squares I have, painted between July 6 and August 4 (you can click on it to see a larger image).

 

I’m giving away four sets of three paintings. I tried to group them by themes.

 

Day at the farm

 

Origami

 

Curious naturalist

 

Abstractionist

 

Each is roughly 4″ x 4″, acrylic paint on canvas.

I think they’d look nice framed individually in smaller frames, or together in a long frame like this one. Or, a couple of visitors have suggested that they can be sewn onto bags or other sewing projects, like patches :D I think that’s awesome idea, as long as the item on which they are sewn won’t need to be washed very much. I’ve ironed them to fix the colours, so I think it would be okay to spray them with some water and wipe them clean. 

If you’d like to give some of my paintings a good home, please leave a comment on this post. Four names will be drawn randomly a week from now, on Sunday, August 19 at midnight (EST). The four people will be contacted by email the following morning :D

Edit: I realized that I forgot to clarify one thing: the randomize draw mechanism will draw four names, the first name being drawn will receive Day at the Farm, the second name will receive Origami, the third name will receive Curious Naturalist, and the fourth name will receive Abstractionist. Basically, the order that the names are drawn will coincide with the order that the painting sets are listed. Sorry that I forgot to make that clear earlier! 

Thank you so much for visiting, and for all of your kind words and support!

Have a great week, everyone! :D

  2. Hi Trish,
    I really admire your work and your staying-power…I tend to give up!
    Hope I am one of the lucky ones.
    Love you blog and photos, so will keep following you on your journey of discovery.
    Thanks Sheila.

  3. I am sure I could find something creative to make with these set of lovely.
    I think you have great ideas and are so talented. I love the first three sets!
    Great giveaway!

  4. Hi there! I have been following you for quite sometime but have never gotten around to commenting until now! I started crocheting and found your page when you posted your pattern for you ami’s. I think that this is a great challenge you gave yourself and I hope to do this next year during crochet month and try to crochet something tiny everyday! Thank you for sharing your personal stories, favorites, and everything else crafty. :D

  5. This is an amazing giveaway!! Your paintings will be great sources of inspiration for whoever wins them… just as your blog is so inspiring! :}

  6. These are so pretty — I especially like the Curious Naturalist set (: Out of curiosity, what are you planning on doing with the rest of the paintings? I know you had them strung up on a clothesline in a picture somewhere.

  7. Wow, what a sweet little idea. How generous!

    And I love the progress you’ve been making with your paintings. I’ve been watching them for some time. I love your little set Origami– but all of them are too cute!

  8. I love all of these paintings. I wish all of my favorites were up for grabs, but Curious Naturalist and Origami have most of them! I loved following along with this little adventure. Thanks for being so generous, here’s hoping you’ll ship to the US!

  9. I’ve loved watching your square-a-days develop, and having a set would be amazing. It’s been a while since I got any art in the mail—I used to swap Artist Trading Cards all the time, and I miss it. (Actually, your project has inspired me to try and get back into some non-yarn art of my own, so thank you!)
