Hi Erin! What a wonderful give-away! I don't know which one I'd choose...they are all beautiful.Please count me in. Have a wonderful weekend!

Hi Erin,
I have recently discovered your blog and just love to visit. You are so talented and have such beautiful posts. I was really thrilled to see this very generous giveaway and would love to be counted in. It would be very hard to choose from your paintings as they are all so nice. However, if I had to choose only one I think it would be the one with the vintage bike.

Thanks for the opportunity.

bj said...

OOO, Erin...I started hyperventilating when I saw that you had been to see me and were having a give-away of one of your fabulous works of art. Then, when I saw the red flowers and the vintage bike, I nearly p'd !
This is such a generous giveaway...thank you for giving us a chance to own a piece of your art. If I DON'T win, maybe I could buy the sign or one like it? I really do love it.
Thanks again for stopping by my place.

bj said...

Oh, shoot...I'm sorry but I meant to ask if I could take your button and put it on my sidebar, announcing your lovely giveaway?

Ginger~~Enchanting Cottage said...

WOW! Erin what a generous give away! You are so talented all of your paintings are just so pretty, and inspiring. I think that I like the red bike, it has so much personality to it, but then again lilacs are my favorite flower, okay I would have to say the lilacs, they bring found memories of the lilac fields that I have visited in the past. I can smell their sweet fragrance just by thinking about them. There were just buckets, and buckets , and rows and rows of lilacs, and can you believe that these farms were in just driving distance from us!
P.S Is it okay to advertise for your give away on my blog the next time I post something?

Just a little something from Judy said...

I cannot imagine who would not comment in response to your very generous give-a-way. Personally, I cannot choose...they are all so beautiful!! It is always a cheerful visit that I experience on this blog. Thank you for sharing your talent with us. I look forward to every new post you do.

Erin! You are beyond generous!!!!! I love all your paintings (especially the red bicycle) but I'd be thrilled with any of your work!!

I went to a huge quilt show last year in VA and somebody had done an enormous wall hanging of a pink bicycle. I've never forgotten it :)

You are so talented and generous to have such a give away. I just happened to come across your blog and I am enjoying it very much. Your work is so lovely. It would be hard to choose, but I adore the lilacs that I miss so much here in Florida.

Cheers Erin,

Did I overlook anything? Is there a place for "followers" on your blog? Oh, how I wish I could do what you do. I'm into doing floral still life photography because I can't paint. But I try. Today I posted a still life image I did of some pink geraniums. Drop by and "smell the flowers" at http://photographyhints.blogspot.com
