Third Giveaway from Poppy Place Pdx.

Here we are another month another Giveaway!

I am loving these giveaways because I get to interact with some really awesome people and making connections is so much fun.

This Month I have decided to go back to giving away artwork, but 2 pieces this time!!!

First up is this bright and colourful card. It is original artwork in different colours and types of inks mounted on a card. This card measures 6.5" x 4.5" approx. and comes with a matching white envelope.





Then we have a fun piece, this was an experiment for me to start producing smaller pieces, as my artwork is getting rather large (4' x 6' canvases) over the past few years and hard to get into the car to carry around, let alone trying to hang in art shows. So, I feel really good about this piece. It is a fun technique using inks and mylar. Inks, like watercolours are sometimes very difficult to control so trying to do an art piece that needs to stay "within the lines" can prove challenging, so always happy to get the result I was working towards.

A little about this piece;

"Bright Strips" is a great piece of original art work, a one of a kind piece, it is signed on the back.

Created in bright shades of Fuchsia Pink, Purple and Reds; In Winsor and Newton water based inks on watercolour paper.(Colours are more vivid on Artwork)

There is a unique sheen and a playful intrigue in this piece creating an abstract form.

"Bright Strips" measures 11 x 11 and is Ready to Frame.

The great thing about this piece is that it can be hung which ever way you choose, it will look great anyway you decide.

(I get rather frustrated with photographs, even using a professional, because they rarely capture the vivid colours my artwork comes in, so believe me on this, the colours are way more vibrant than the photo indicates!)



So, all you have to do is check out my Etsy Shops and please heart me! :)

Follow my blog and then post comments back here on my blog until the 31st of August; I will enter every name from the comments and have a drawing on the 31st.

Have fun!

Happy Painting/Creating! :) T.

I love the idea of being able to enjoy art work on a card - especially if you don't have lots of room to hang a painting. Love the vibrant colors!

T@PoppyPlace I adore your use of colors, rich and luxurious. After visiting your etsy shop I couldn't help but think how great it would be if you offered small copies or prints of some of your art on cards...copies would be less demanding on you and allow customers an opportunity to purchase a card they don't mind parting with. I know it would break my heart to buy one or your hand painted cards and then have to send it off via post...but a copy or a reproduction might be a tiny bit easier to relinquish.

T @ Poppy Place said...

Almost Precious, you are right about the print thing, I guess I am a bit wary about doing that, silly really but it goes to the whole exclusive original art thing, I have been rethinking that aspect because others have said the same thing! Maybe one day............ :)

I'm following your blog. I really like your Sun Shower piece. It's bright and colorful and I have a ton of places I could hang it. It'd definately be a focal point in the room and a conversation starter.
