Amaze me August #27 ~ Avocado Art Giveaway ~

I've been trying to wait until I reached 100 linkups, to host a giveaway with something I made,,, BUT,,, it might take a while still until then, lol, sooooo I thought why not now?

I am pretty nervous about this giveaway. I'm sure it's normal, to feel scared when you put yourself, and your art out there. I hope you all are not too harsh on me, and you like what I'm offering.

These are some paintings I did around 2003, when I was confined to my couch for several months after almost breaking my foot. I fell down the stairs in my apartment in the middle of the night, and fractured my ankle really bad. Luckily, it healed pretty good, and I had a TON of time to paint. It was fun, and I actually sold quite a few paintings on Ebay back then. 

Anyway, these are some paintings from that time, and I thought I'd do a giveaway, so I can share it with you. 

I hope you guys like avocados,, he he. 

Take your pick, pink or blue, it's up to you.
This is an original acrylic painting on canvas paper 8x10

You can def frame these, or apply them to a nice piece of wood.
They are super colorful, and super fun. 
What a perfect addition to any kitchen, or dining room.

Here are a few other paintings, I still have hanging out at my home. Let me know what you think, which one is your favorite?

In my spare time I enjoy cooking, and baking. In fact my mother and I have been making cakes for over 30 years. I also love gardening, traveling, and all things crafty. I struggle daily to keep my like organized, along with my never ending battle to keep the house clean. I adore my three kids MOST of the time, and can usually be found doing the mom thing from morning till night. I try to catch a few mommy moments, but those are hard to find in this wonderful life of mine. I am blessed and happy, and am thrilled you stopped by today :)
