One year ends and another begins...with a giveaway

As I close off 2018, and prepare for 2019, I am ever thankful for you, my friends from near and far, who have been loyal readers of my blog, or who have visited my website from time to time.

In 2018, I published 124 posts and had 12,797 views on my website. This is up from 7,046 views in 2017.

What better way to show my gratitude than to start the new year with a giveaway!

One of my loyal readers will win one 8 X 10 giclée print of my signature painting, Forever a Wallflower, at the end of January. Here are other prints available in the gallery on my website.

What is a giclee print?

Forever a Wallflower - giclee print


Giclée printing is the best print reproduction available.

My prints are professionally printed using archival inks on fine acid and lignin free 100% cotton paper. Forever a Wallflower has a matte finish and is water resistant. It has a 1" border as shown in the photo; however, the watermark is not on the print.

Giclée prints can last well over 100 years as long as they are kept out of direct sunlight.
