International Giveaway Coming

I had a national US giveaway recently and I had promised one for my international friends. So, the international giveaway is coming soon.

I would ask that you be a Facebook friend. Friend me here:

To make you eligible, I will ask you to either share a blogspot post from here or either a a Facebook post when I decide what the heck I'm going to do.

The way this works is I write down the name of each friend who has shared my post on a slip of paper. My husband draws the name. It was a lot of fun the last time. I only wish that everyone could have won. If I were wealthy enough, I'd give everyone a painting or a print. That would be a dream come true for me.

Some of My Latest Paintings: Need Feedback

This is the first day in three that I could actually browse the net. So, I am taking advantage of the situation and adding photos in one blog post.

Needed Feedback
: While definitely impressionism, my style is evolving, right from under my feet with a mind of its own no less. Instead of my fingers or even a painting knife, I used a different instrument to execute the following three paintings. While I used broken color and mixed mostly on the canvas, the works are not as pointillistic as my other works. I would like to approach non-co-op galleries in about a year, so I must execute a body of work in a consistent style.

You do not need to be an artist to comment. I'm really interested/need to know what everyone's opinion is. You can help me decide if this style is one I should continue with. Thanks!

What do you think? I would greatly appreciate any response and/or advice. These paintings were from my trips to the Savannah National Wildlife Refuge, my favorite painting spot.
