Painting A Pink French Bicycle and The Winner Is . . .

Welcome.  I am so happy that you stopped by.  My garden gate is always open for you to come in and sit and relax with a cup of tea while I share the inspirations for my art with you.  I sincerely appreciate your helpful and sincere comments about the little mini cards - you are the best and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for participating in my giveaway.

The winner of the drawing for the $50.00 gift card and mini cards is Stacey of Poofing the Pillows.  Congratulations Stacey. Please send me an e-mail with your address so I can send your prize.

The warm Fall weather in Southern California has been great at extending the growing season for our roses. They are on their fourth bloom. I am going to paint a pink French bicycle to donate as a raffle prize for a breast cancer fundraiser at Paris In A Cup.  Let's join Bentley, my Studio Assistant, in the garden to look for pink roses for inspiration.

Thank you for stopping by.  I sincerely appreciate your visits, comments, e-mails and those who follow my blog.  Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to see me paint something special.

Have a lovely week.  Blessings, Erin

Wow Erin, your roses are magnificent still - I just have a few Peace in bloom but they're on their last legs now the cooler weather has arrived.

Love the pink bicycle - and for a very good cause.

Bentley, looking even more cuddly than ever in this pic - he is gorgeous and I would love to hug him!

I'm off to Europe on Sat. so may be slow with comments for a few weeks if no Internet - but I'll try to check in to read any posts you share.
I'm feeling fine again thankfully - should be OK for travel - and Bob will be with me to carry the heavy bags!!!!!!

Your pink roses are still blooming so nicely. I only have one pink rose left in my garden but I think more may bloom. These are beautiful pictures. Do you know that after the red rose, the pink rose is my favorite?

Hello Erin

It's been a very gloomy day where I am, raining with dark clouds and quite cold -
it was such a joy to find your bright gorgeous blog, you've raised my spirits no end!!!!

So I've just become your newest follower!

I love bicycles too and your pink one is a dream - who wouldn't want to ride it!

Love all your pretty roses - they're a picture and I can see how you find inspiration in them.
I'm just re-doing a long border in my garden and looking to plant several new pinky coloured roses and blue and mauvey iris.

It's Spring where I am on the other side of the world - far, far away in New Zealand!

Do pop over and see me - it's only a click with your mouse and I'll get out my prettiest tea cups to celebrate and make you welcome!

Happy days
Shane ♥

Erin, I wanted to let you know that I received the gift in the mail the other day. Left town the same day so I'm a little slow letting you know. Your little paintings are absolutely beautiful. I will be doing a post very soon and will let you know when.
