It's a GIVEAWAY!

This has been such an incredible year for me with shows and books etc... that I decided I want to share and have some fun with my art buddies and blog hoppers.

My favorite quote is from Henry Van Dyke "Use the talents that you possess, for the woods would be silent if only the best birds sang."  How true and how inspirational! Everyone possesses talents. We all have gifts to give and nothing should stop us from expressing those gifts whether it's art, music, writing, dancing, singing etc. etc... Maybe you want to be a chef! Whatever it is, you need to express yourself and revel in the joy of sharing those talents.

Nuf said.... here's the GIVEAWAY and how to enter:

This assemblage entitled "Talents" is created within a wooden cigar box. I think the picture clearly shows its composition. I will be giving this assemblage away to a randomly drawn name from those who leave a comment here... and.... if you post the giveaway on your blog or Facebook linking to me, then that will be a second entry. Just drop me a line to let me know that you have posted to your blog or Facebook and include a link please.Everyone is eligible, no matter where you live around the world I will send it out to you.

So you have 2 ways to enter:

Leave a comment here on this post.
Post the giveaway link on your blog or Facebook and email to me.  canace@pbunited.com
Drawing date is June 21st.. the first day of Summer.

I can't wait to see who I send this to!

Best... Canace

p.s. Several people have written saying they can't leave a comment. If for some reason you have a problem with your ID, try using the anonymous setting or the URL setting instead. Just tell me who you are in the comment itself. Sorry for the problem... not sure why some people have trouble. :o(

Ahhh...what a great quote, my dear. I'd like to share a quote a friend wrote to me yesterday "The day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom." (Anais Nin).
Would love to win this soooo I'm tosssing my name into the give away hat!

Anne said...

Hi Bilie..I love how your work is never production but each a true and authentic piece of soul. Each with a story to be re-told but also allowing it to be re-written. Each piece speaking through some gleaned relic and purposfully proped or burnished to spark our nostlgia or our hope or our wishfullness. Thanks.

I love your work; I saw it at the Mercantile and was enchanted. The quote is wonderful and the bird/ee theme so appropriate about everyone having something they can sit on (develop) and hatch (create). I do collage and I am very inspired by what you do.

micmir said...

I meant egg (not ee)

Will add my compliments to all those that have prefaced this one, but suspect Australian Customs would end up the recipients of this were I to be chosen, given the 'animal' origins of some of the totems :-( Best of luck to the winner :-)

Fritzi Marie said...

Beautiful! My goal this year is to be more brave about sharing my talents. Your beautiful piece of art reminds me to do so.

Hugs and best wishes,
Fritzi Marie
