After a long delay in which lots of things have happened, thereby submerging me for a while, here it is:
The Official Becca Yoder Art Grand Opening/Merry Christmas/Happy New Year/ Thank You For Supporting My Art Giveaway.
That was a lot of capitals.
But they describe a capital idea I got from my friend, Bekah. (Different girl, different spelling… lots of confusion. And fun. Lots of fun.) Here’s the idea:
Remember this piece?
No? Well, it has been a while.
Here’s the description I wrote of it previously:
“As a kid, I spent hours in nature. Thinking, imagining, talking to God, and making things of mud and acorns. My wonder at the colors, life, and complexity of creation just keeps growing. This piece was inspired by watching sunrises, when all the world is fresh and waking quietly. The colors, movements, and sounds harmonize in a tune too real to be audible, and you have to both see and listen to feel it. I tried to convey a bit of every morning’s magic by using earthy colors, realism for the Queen Anne’s Lace, and a more abstract symbolism for the birds. The idea of birds as notes on a telephone wire staff helped capture the idea of music being everywhere, and also provided a middle ground between the symbol (G-clef) and the realism of the flowers. This is Nature Song.”
Because of the canvas’s irregular dimensions, and the extra cost and headache making prints would cause, this original remains without duplicate. Yup, this is the one and only. I love it dearly and hate to part with it, but art is for sharing. I believe that firmly. Also, I need to diminish the stack of finished canvases behind the chair in my living room. Furthermore, my art site could use some publicity.
So. Want to help? Want a chance to win “Nature Song”? (One requirement: you must give her a loving and understanding home, should you win her. This feels a bit like hurling a baby rabbit into the unknown, its big, liquid eyes all questioning. And its little, pink nose twitching in its soft, furry face. Alright. You get the idea.) Here’s what to do:
1) Post a link to this blog post on your blog, facebook, twitter, or other manner of social media.
2) Leave a comment here, on this post, saying you did so.
3) Each comment is one entry, or chance to win. Please leave as many comments as times you shared the link. Easy, no?
I will draw a winner on February 14, because I think this is going to be pretty sweet. Get it? Valentine’s Day? Sweet? Oh, nevermind. But I’m serious about the 14th.
Let’s do this!
