I'm giving away ART!

No, I haven't lost my marbles! I'm simply feeling generous! Thankful, really......grateful and appreciative and hoping to brighten up some one's day!



Very soon, one of you will be receiving this 12 x 12 painting of White Geraniums, in the mail!



I painted it recently to celebrate Spring! It is truly a breath of fresh air to see God's creation budding forth in bloom! My soul is touched by His beauty! Captivated by His love which He has so lavishly bestowed upon us. Look closely and listen carefully. All around us nature sings His song. He's alive! He is good! He cares! Life can get pretty hectic and crazy, full of worries and fear. All of which can hide the Truth, but spend a time of solitude outdoors surrounded by His handiwork, enveloped by the symphony of nature and you will hear Him whispering, " I love you". It is a powerful message. The one we need most. It is a seed of hope that with His light and living water, springs forth into a new life.


Okay! Are you ready!!! There are three ways to win!
1. Leave a comment and you will have one entry!
2. Leave another comment letting me know you are a follower and you will receive another entry.
3. Leave another comment letting me know you have posted about my giveaway on your blog and receive yet another entry.
That's three chances to win!

I'll draw the winner next Friday, April 16th, by Random Counter.
Spring blessings, sweet blog friends
Times up!!! Thanks everyone for entering my Art Giveaway! The winner is announced on the post above.

Roxanne,
I love your writing, painting, and sweet words. There are many times during the day I look at "Roxanne the Artist" and it alwasy brightens my day. This has been a bad week at Midland High for several teachers, including myself. Just yesterday I had a student threaten me. I'm filing charges. So sad this world we live in.
Les and I can't wait to come to Abilene for a visit!

Angela Elledge said...

Roxanne, you're the best! Love your painting and love every single word of what you've written, we serve an amazing God!

Ok, now were you serious about plein air painting in Abilene? I'm going to assume, yes. It would be so much fun to meet you and paint together...hmmm, bet you didn't think I'd take you up on this offer. If you are truly serious, can you e-mail me B&B recommendations...June-ish.

Sue Furrow said...

Hi Roxanne, Love your blog. It is very uplifting, inspiring, and peaceful. Your art work is lovely and would probably do well in an Etsy store. It takes more time than I have to give right now. I have two sweet gran-babes that I spend most of my extra time with. I paint once or twice a week and it looks obvious that you get to paint more often, so you might have a steady supply for a store. It's easy to set up but if you need any help at all just send an email. Sinc, Sue

Sue Furrow said...

Howdy again, Sorry. Forgot to tell you to go look at my blog and tell me what you think.

Just started following your blog (introduced through a mutual friend)...and I love it! The painting is gorgeous. My mom was an artist and how ironic that her favorite flower was geraniums. She now resides in God's garden, but oh how I miss her. Thanks for stirring up a wonderful memory for me. I would be luckiest girl on this earth if I win!

I love your blog.. for a lot of reasons. One, you are about my age I believe and i love the color turquoise (aqua)... My Dad (bless his memory) loved the color too. He painted his house that color for 50 years! His 1957 Chevy was white/turq, he even painted his ladder that color..

Blessings in Blogging to you.
