HAPPY BIRTHDAY, GRANDPA!
I'm so excited about this giveaway today! When I came up with the idea of the countdown to 30, I asked my sister if I could give something away that she had painted and she agreed! So, today I'm featuring the artwork of my sister Liz (she blogs at capture life's rhythm). She graduated in 2006 with a double major in painting and illustration. She has a studio in downtown Indianapolis at the Harrison Center which is open the first Friday of every month for open studio night. Liz will also be one of the featured artists at the Element Spa & Salon in Lafayette, IN for their upcoming Grand Opening celebration.
Liz shares about her inspiration and work, "I like to explore concepts or ideas in my paintings, often in a somewhat abstract and subtle way. I draw inspiration from poetry and the written word and I enjoy mixing aspects of illustration with a more free form of painting. My hope is that my work will evoke emotion, whether that is negative or positive, from its audience. I want my art to communicate with the viewer in a way that provokes thought."
This giveaway is for 4 notecards with prints of her original paintings. These beautiful cards would be great for sending or for framing. I'm so delighted to offer this giveaway to you and to encourage you to support local artists in your area! Here are the paintings that will be used for a couple of the cards:
