I'm A Winner!!

Winning is something I am really not used to!  I don't often win contests or prizes or anything really, so I completely floored when fellow participants of The Summer of Color, sent me congrats.  This is the groovy little package of goodies that I received from Kristin.

Not only is she very talented, but she is a super sweetie.  She hosted the Summer Of Color event and was a truly gracious and lovely host.  I'm so excited to hear that she'll be doing it again, next summer.  If you didn't get a chance to visit and see all the amazing bits of art that everyone did, you should shoot over there now and take a looky loo!  It is colorful and amazing!
I want to thank her for all her hard work and for this lovely and wonderful prize. I'm so excited.  I don't have my art space set up yet, so I haven't had a chance to play with the arty goodness, but I did make a recipe out of that super groovy cookbook.  I have to say, that is the most awesome cook book I have ever seen.  I love it!  And the recipe, was fantastic!!  Our first real sit down meal, in our new house.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
I missed the last week of the Summer Of Color Event, which was to show all your art work that you'd done for the event.  So I will do that now!  It won't be done as artistically as so many others did, but I hope you enjoy it either way!
Have a truly blessed and beautiful week!   :)


Blue and Green, just because!



Brown again

I did miss a few of the colors and had hoped to make them up, maybe I will once I'm a bit more settled and find all of my art stuff.  Happy day to you!


  1. congratulations!! you deserve it!

  2. Settle in and then work, work ,work. Very creative and fun paintings.

  3. Congratulations Heather on the win. I so enjoyed seeing your fab artwork again. Annette x

  4. Congrats on the win! This has been such a fabulously colourful summer, & I've so enjoyed your work each week :)

  5. Congratulations! I'm not surprised. Your drawings are all beautiful...the orange is still my favorite. :)

  6. Congrats on your win Heather! Your S of C artwork is so beautiful I can't really pick a favorite! I love them all. I think maybe I should have done a blog post showing my grouping too but I'm done now, lol! About your request for a print. I don't do prints at least not at the moment. I have to drive 160 miles round trip just to drop off the work and then go back when it's done so I haven't made that step with my art yet. I will keep you in mind tho! E-mail me and maybe we can figure something out.

    Hugs, Jessi xox

  7. Thank you Tara! It was a random win, but I was super excited and grateful.

    Jean, yep, that's my big plan. So many ideas swirling around in my head!

    Thanks Annette. It was truly a fun Summer Event.

    Joanna, I agree, it was really an inspiration. I so enjoyed meeting everyone and seeing so many creative works of art. Yours included! :)

    Thank you Laila! I love that one too, not sure where it came from, but it turned out to be one of my faves, as well.

    Jessi, thanks! I can understand that it's a very long drive. Wow, that would be such a long way to go. I thought I had lived far from town. :) Maybe some time in the future. I love your pictures.

  8. Congratulations on your super win! Summer of Colour has been great fun hasn't it? You have such a variety of artwork created for the different colour themes. I think my favourite is brown, I just love her eyes.

    Thank you for your lovely comments on my blog, I really appreciate that you dropped by.


  9. Congratulations, Heather!!

    You are a very deserving recipient. Hey, I hope the dust is settling up there for you!

    I loved them all, but have to say the brown was my favorite. I like the realism in the girl's eyes, and I loved what you had to say about your husband when you commented about the second pic.

    Best to all of you!

  10. Awe, I missed this! Thank you for you sweet post and for sharing all of your beautiful art with us!! We are so lucky to have had you join in and so look forward to the next one! Thank you for everything! xoxo

  11. Congratulations for your sweet surprise. Isn't it so exciting having something as special as this arrive! I have so enjoyed watching you create throughout the Summer of Color! Your artwork always inspires me! As do you!

  12. Some of these look anime-ish XD My total favorite are "Green" and "Brown" (the first one) There so beautiful!
