Original artwork giveaway

You might remember I mentioned a little giveaway I had planned to celebrate all of you lovelies who pop in to read this blog of mine? After all, it's you who've made my foray into the blogosphere so rewarding, not to mention downright fun! Well, I thought it might be fun to give away the winner's choice of an original painting from my soon-to-be-released range of affordable artwork. I know it can be hard to find pieces to suit your decor, without breaking the bank, so I'm planning a new range of paintings to suit your style and budget.

Here's a little taste of the new range, and the winner will get to choose one of these four paintings:

'Fresco' - heavily textured, tactile paintings


'Verve' - abstract works, featuring silver or gold leafing


'Drift' - seascapes and coastal-themed works

'Flora' - floral studies and botanical works

So, to enter this giveaway, all you need to do is follow my blog, or become a follower, and leave a comment telling me which painting you'd choose. Entry is open to all, including my international mates. Of course, you'll get extra chances to win by popping a mention on your sidebar, and/or blogging about the giveaway, or tweeting/facebooking about it (oh, and please let me know so you don't miss those extra entries).

That's it - simple! I'm thrilled to have you preview my new range, so if there's anything in particular you'd like to see included, or any feedback you may like to share please feel free - I'd love to know your thoughts. By the way, the winner will be chosen at random on Thursday, 17th June and I'll post the winner on Friday. 

Thanks again for all your support and encouragement, it really does mean the world to me.

Have a great day,

  2. Your art work is gorgeous, Kerri. What a hard choice to make between the four pieces. I would have to chose either the seascape or the abstract. But they are all beautiful. So, count me in.

  4. Hey Kerri, they're all fantastically good...but you know that!! If I were lucky enough to win I'd have to go with the silver leafing (seeing that rotten chair of mine is still half done!!)...but you probably knew that too! Awesome job my friend. Of course I'm a follower and I'll put this on my sidebar too. Awesome to the power of...you know!

  12. Kerri you are so talented & what a generous giveaway ! Im already a follower. First I saw the 'Fresco' & loved it , then the 'Verve' very interesting, like a storm over the ocean, 'Drift' well I can never go past a coastal feel , Then the pretty 'Flora'. If that turned out to be my hardest decision for the day it would be a pleasurable one. I would have a spot for everyone of them , but to choose one it would be the 'Fresco' it would look divine in our bedroom.

  13. oh my gosh Kerri I LOVE the 'Drift' painting!
    Our bedroom is all neutrals with a sprinkling of tiffany blues but the walls are bare because i havent been able to find (or afford!) anything great to go on them! This would be PERFECT!
    ok - im off to do a story on my blog about this today so all my friends can see your work!

  48. Hi Kerri

    I have just recently become a follower of your blog and am absolutely loving it! I am decorating my first home and really feeling my way so to be able to have a look at all of your ideas is really inspirational for me.

    The third picture "Drift" would look amazing in my bedroom as it would go perfectly with the torquoise in my bedspread.

    Thanks again for the inspiration!

    Cheers.

  57. Kerri, I love your blog. I visit everyday and have been registered for a while as a follower. You are a fantastic artist. I don't think there would be anyone who couldn't find a home for any of your paintings. I love they all. Yesterday's post sealed the idea I was toying with of introducing green/blue shades to my newly painted white house. With this in mind I would choose the Verve. I have just the spot for it to be put up straight away. Love your blog and your paintings. Cheers Louise

  58. OMG Kerri!!!
    I can't believe I was missing this.. you know how much I love your work! It's hard to choose a favorite darling.. I love the 'Flora' so much BUT, if I'll be so lucky to win I'd really like the 'Fresco'. My living rooms needs it badly;-)

  60. Just discovered your blog through Tina (Rubies Place). What beautiful work you do! I'd have a very hard time choosing between Drift and Flora.

    ReplyDelete
  61. just gorgeous, cant wait till we can buy, seascape is my pick

    ReplyDelete
  62. Hi Kerri, what an exciting giveaway! They all look gorgeous. I think I would choose the fresco. Thanks for the opportunity to win it .

    ReplyDelete
  63. Wonderful Kerri..did you create all of these?? I love the texture. We have a similar style, particularly in the third one. Did you use gesso on the paper to create the texture? I created a similar colour scheme with sand. It was one of my zany ideas but it was kind of cool...I covered the whole canvas with several layers...need extra strong hooks to hang. Especially had fun one with one entitiled Uluru...that red is not an easy colour to create!!

    Oh..you took me back...thanks for that, I have not thought about my paintings in a while :)

  64. I would have a very hard time choosing between Drift and Flora....though Drift reminds me of looking north on Barnegat Bay near where I live, which makes that one more special to me. I am an artist as well, and love your work!

  65. YAY! I was able to post a link to your fabulous give away on my sidebar, I learn a new skill everyday!!!
