Art Giveaway and a Thank You!

I have two real angels in my life, that just recently did an amazing thing for me. Pretty much the nicest thing anyone has ever done. While I can't mention names, they know who they are. In their honor I'm giving away an angel piece that I created a while back. We all have angels in our lives that pop up at the most unexpected times. THANK YOU to my angels.

TO ENTER THE DRAWING: Mention this post on your blog or website with a link back to this post. Leave me a comment with your blog link so I can check out your post. I will draw a winner (randomly) on Saturday July 19th. The winner will recieve this original art, assemblage piece. International players welcome :).

"A New Angel"

  10. Hi Kris- such a lovely piece! I cannot guess about your angels, but I am thinking we might share one. Even more exciting to learn you are going to ZNE! I will get to meet you! That's is exciting and funny, considering we have to go from IN to CA to do that. Keep the tattoo needles away from me. Now that I have seen Chel's oh-so-cool one in person-I still think PAIN. I am flying to and from Indy on TH and Mon.

  34. I saw your art piece featured over at The Feathered Nest and had to come over and comment on it. It is beautiful. I am not sure but it looks like you used one of those old plastic doilies that had a plastic flower in the middle. My aunt had those on her side tables in her living room. I have not seen one in years, too fun. You did a beautiful job!
