Giveaway!!

I've decided on this darling little painting of avocados for this (my first!) giveaway. It's oil on a canvas panel, 6x6 inches. And since it's flat it can be easily framed, or be displayed as is on a decorative shelf or bookshelf.

Oil on canvas panel, 6x6 inches

    We have a real live 20 lb Garfield Cat. He ran up a tree and fell half way off of a limb with his rolly-polly belly swaying in the wind, when all of a sudden a mocking bird came along and started kamikazi dive-bombing him! He finally falls off and rolls while we are laughing hysterically in tears.....true story!
    I love the purity and clarity of your colors! Your paintings make me smile :)
