Tree Painting GIVEAWAY!

Sometime, when I get a bit shall we say bored of doing the same thing I like to branch out a bit and try something new. This generally ends in gnashing of teeth and breaking of bones. 

This weekend, while stocking up on the usual bits and bobbles (at everyone's favorite Bits, Bobbles and Shit store) I came across some paint to make things shiny. Never one to turn down shiny, I snatched it up and headed back to my lair with nary an idea how to test it out in my head.

Armed with just a sponge, the paint and a piece of canvas board I set to work and out came this tree painting.
It's hard to tell but the background glitters in the sun as does parts of the tree (the highlighted parts).

So . . . I hear you asking, why in the hell do I care? Because I decided to give away this painting to one lucky customer, I mean reader.


It's a 16X12 on canvas board which means it can be framed or set up somewhere nice, lit on fire or fed to goats. It would probably retail for about $40 on a good day.

How to enter?

It's quite simple really, just leave a comment. It can be what you had for breakfast, who you think will win the world series of cup stacking or just what the Mayan's really think will happen in 2012 (If they don't come back 40 feet tall shooting lighting from their eyes I will be very disappointed).

If you'd like another entry follow me. Oh you may also want to include that in your comment as well just so I make super sure I can count right.

You want a third entry? Shesh, you are demanding. Okay a bit of a bigger challenge then, you must tape a picture of one of my paintings to your forehead and walk backwards down the street singing yankee doodle (big poofy hat is optional).

Once again, GIVEAWAY!

Even better, Giveaway of a painting.

Leave comment, follow and make a fool of yourself are the ways to play. I'll be announcing the winner in a week (and you better believe I'll be mentioning this sucker a lot).

G-I-V-E-A-W-A-Y!

I follow you on Twitter, I'm about to follow your blog, and your paintings have inspired me to take up the brush myself. So there! ;)

That's a beautiful tree you've painted there, IW.

I follow you! <3 Your trees btw. They're the only necklaces I won't let my kids get their grubby paws on. (And therefore one of the only necklaces I have left). I Love wearing them to conventions and getting complements on them! :D

It's nice. Really nice. However, it could use a crow. Or a Crow. And a Tom Servo, since I know you are also into the MST thing.

But I kid. It's really cool. "Portrait of an Ent in Repose (Too Hasty)".

One: It's beautiful. Two: As you may be aware, I follow you on twitter and just followed your blog. That might be three. So, four, well, I forget four, what was I saying?

The gibberishy comment above belongs to me, EricaTheShe, your biggest fan. I just can't log on because Google hates me and thinks I'm a bad person. OK, shutting up now.

Wait, what? That's a great painting! Are you sure you don't want to just sell it? I'll take it for $25.....

3 cups of dandelion greens, 2 cups apple juice, 1 cup of water, 1 mango, and 1 peach. Blend them all together and breakfast is done.
But I like the tree. I wants it.

SURELY thats worth more that $40?
Not to say I wouldn't just take it!
(Cos it's gorgeous!)
But I doubt you'd post to the UK!
;' ) )

*clears throat* My breakfast consisted of a bottle of Cascade Ice: Pineapple Blueberry Banana and a stale rice crispy treat. Second breakfast so far is a big cup of store brand Dr. Pepper.

I think you do amazing work, to say the least. I'd be shocked and overjoyed to win but will also be happy for anyone else lucky enough to get something great of yours of their own.

Thank you, good luck and keep watching the skiis!

...skies.

I'm a devoted twitter follower and FB fan-friend, plus I'm commenting and adding you to my blog reader. By my calculations that is eleventeen chances.

Also, today my dog made friends with a beagle mix, ate a blue ink pen, turned her nose up at a fancy new toy and went batshit over an ice cube. I wish my days were so exciting.

Ooooh what a beautiful moody blue colour. I very much like your trees.

Well, I ate a healthy breakfast of Multi-grain Cheerios and Sumatran coffee. I don't Twitter. I do adore your tree paintings...so much that I bought one from you a while ago! So there!

Well...After reading all the comments I must say that as the STAR of of your most recent work (which has greatly enhanced your celebrity-ness) it would be your way of saying; "Thank you Pearlagogo,for coming into my life".

You know I love your work but my Bella loves it even more. Yes I have stooped to using my daughter to win this gem. But it is true. She can use the inspiration as her 7 year old talents are just starting to bloom. Thank you! - @caramelhuricane - Christine - gaberayella (you pick which persona you like best)

You should never eat polar bear liver, because it has potentially deadly levels of Vitamin A. And you should give me that painting as well :)

TC_Girl said...

Yo! I love your paintings - but you knew that. And one of them sits on my desk and tons of very unimportant doctoral students walk past it every day. (I include myself in that group, of course.) Point being.. this is an entry!

gypsy818 said...

Wait a minute. You bought the shiny stuff & then just proceeded to PAINT THIS PICTURE? I am officially inspired. I'm going to go create something. Right after I finish this game of Wheel of Fortune on Facebook. ;D
