Welcome To My Art Giveaway

In celebration of my new artwork I am offering my
First Giveaway.
Recently I have been experimenting with collage. As you can see, I use any piece that I can find in my small art "junk" box.
I have always enjoyed drawing fish. This interest goes back to when I was a child.
In elementary school, I loved looking at all of the colors and shapes to be found under the sea. I have tried to capture some of those images here.
This collage is 5x7, mounted on foamcore and has a picture hanger on the back.
I plan on creating more collages for my Etsy store soon.
Please make a comment and follow me on my blog.
The drawing will take place on Sunday the 18th of March.
Thank you for stopping by and good luck!!

I lovelovelove the flowers on the bottom, and the fish has a very First Nations feel to it, almost Haida. I think you need to make a lot more of these as you've got a fantastic eye for how to put them together. I couldn't collage if my life depended on it :)

Magic Love Crow said...

Hey Linda ;o) My buddy Gloria, from New End Studio, http://newendstudio.blogspot.com/ would love to follow you and join in on your giveaway, but she can't comment, because you are using the embedded below option for commenting. I think I told you about this? If you could change it to the pop up window for commenting, it would be appreciated ;o) That's why I did it. But, in the mean time, could you put her into your giveaway ;o) Let me know if you change the way you comment ;o) Thanks ;o) Oh, she put your giveaway on facebook ;o)

Hi, nice to meet you (well, not exactly. The internet is confusing that way). I was directed here by Stacy, and my mum (I was told to say that though I'm not sure why). Anyway, the colours are really cool! The the texture looks amazing, I just want to reach though the computer and see just what it really feels like. It's an awesome collage. Guess I'm a fan now too!

Linda said...

Gloria...thank you for your comment...You are added to my giveaway. No worries.

Mina said...

Linda, this is so beautiful! I would be honored to be included in your giveaway. I will be out of town from this evening until next Wednesday, so if I am the lucky gal, don't give up on me to respond. Hugs to you, Mina
