Giveaway Winner, and a Peek at my GRANDE painting!
You'll have to forgive me....I weinee'd out of picking a giveaway winner myself. I just couldn't! Everyone has a great reason for needing/wanting $500 worth of cute business stationary. So.
I let Random do it.
She has no qualms, and she picked...
Congratulations, MaryNeff! I'll be in touch with instructions on how to claim your prize!
And, now....a peek at the ginormo canvas I had framed last week. It's a folk art painting by a street artist out of Rio de Janeiro - where we're moving in about 2 1/2 weeks - eeek! Anyway, I had it sandwiched between two pieces of glass, with about a three-inch float between the painting and the frame.
The Brazilian framers thought I was "crazy American lady," but I knew exactly what I wanted, which included being able to see the raw edges of the canvas.
We paid very little for the painting, so while I wanted to honor its humble heritage, I also wanted to do it justice by framing it as a real, statement piece.
I can't wait to install it in our new apartment in Rio.
Let's hope it survivies the trip....
