It's CONTEST time!

TIMES UP! ...AND THE WINNER IS....



HEAVEN SCENT

Congratulations, Lynnette! Your suggested title for the garden watercolor was perfect in so many ways! I can't thank you enough! You are the winner of the NEST painting and I hope it will brighten a corner in your own litte nest!Please email me roxannespradlin@yahoo.com and I will mail it ASAP! Again, thanks and congratultions.

A big thanks to everyone for your thoughtful contributions.It took me some time to decide! The following suggestions were 'runner- up's':

Blossoms of Friendship
Friendship Cottage
Friendship Springs Eternal
Buds in Life's Garden ( too cute!)




Sixteen years ago I painted this large watercolor for my best friend, Leslie. It was her birthday. I painted, matted and framed it all in one day and gave it to her before the sun set but I didn't give it a title. Our friendship, like the garden depicted, has been a constant source of light, truth and love where God has grown in us. We share countless memories and stories. I consider Leslie and her precious family one of the sweetest of God's gifts ! With her birthday just around the corner I'd love for her painting to have the perfect title.......That is where you come in and the contest begins.

Blossoms of Friendship

"If Friends Were Flowers..."

because - everyone knows how that ends (...I'd pick you) and because that painting is how friends as flowers would look!

Roxanne said...

Thanks Beth and Mary! Both of those are great!

Just wanted you to know that that "buds" in my title is short for "buddies". Thought I better explain!!!

Hi Roxanne! You don't know me, but my mother-in-law, Michele Klepac, sent me your blog link to check out your contest! I love your blog and art! You are very talented! (I went to UMHB with Kim and Beth! Sweet girls!)

My suggestion is: "Bloom and Grow where God plants You."

Roxanne said...

Wow! Thanks, Cassi,Jo Carol, Michelle, Maria,Molly, and Jessica! You all are amazingly clever.

Jessica, so nice to meet you! I'll tell me girls. Any connection to Ashley Klepac? Have you visited Beth's blog? Click on Beth and company under my favorite blog's.

Hi Roxanne,
I'm a friend of Beth's. I love both of the paintings!

The painting for your friend Leslie really makes me feel the peace that God provides through people He puts in our lives to encourage and support us. It sounds like you have one of those wonderful "friends that are family" sort of relationships with her, and that is so special. So, my suggestion for the title is "My cup overflows" from Psalm 23.
Happy early birthday Leslie!

Roxanne said...

Shannon! I'm so glad you dropped by. Beth has many nice things to say about you....and by the sweet comment you left, I can see why! You are absolutely right about Leslie and your suggested title could not be more true. Thanks again!
