Well Holly, what a difficult choice that was to make! So...... my favourite is the maiden hair fern, it is so delicate and beautifully balanced.

Lisa Firke said...

So hard to choose. My eye was drawn to the nest, but I love them all!

Jenny @ Spry On The Wall said...

The feathers are gorgeous! All of your work is just beautiful!

lamina@do a bit said...

Love the woodland prints! How can I choose... it's a toss up... bird feathers or forsythia branch specimen! :)

Jodi said...

Oh, my! Maidenhair fern and the peacock, and ALL OF THEM!

Charlotte Cunningham said...

Charlotte Cunningham said...

Karen said...

It was your Mossy Log that first drew me to your work, I have followed ever since! Karen

shellieartist said...

Amazing as always...would love any of them! :)

phoebe said...

They're all wonderful! I love the nest and the feathers both and the maidenhair fern especially :)

Very pretty pretty collection.

I love the first one with the beetles,well i love them all really...
autumnal wishes,

Gretchen said...

This was a very difficult choice, I truly love them all... but if I had to pick one, I would choose the "Winged Maple Seeds". Exquisite!!

Chow Lee said...

Hooray, the Logs are back, THE LOGS ARE BACK!!!
My personal favorite from your collection.

Laura Terry said...

Oh wow! I love them all too, but the Robins are definitely calling my name!

Alison Friend said...

The feathers really tickle my fancy!

Sasha said...

I do love those beetles! (And the bird's nest and my daughter voted for the feathers and the moth, but our official vote is going to be for the beetles.)

sandy said...

Well, it's a difficult decision. They are all wonderful. Leaning towards the maiden hair.

Jone Hallmark said...

You are amazing.
I find your work so inspiring and your style so delicate and magical. I have long-loved the way you see things and put them to paper.
What a dream to have the possibility to "win" one from you.
Choosing a favorite is not easy because they are incredible all together.....but....
TOP on my list is the Beetles & Weevils, with the Bird Nest a close second and the Hornet Moths close behind.
So wonderful that you are offering these prints again...they are exquisite....thank you!

Kirsten said...

I've long been drooling over your work in Etsy. I think (though it's a very hard call!) that I love the birch trees best of all... ~Kirsten/Arabesque Aromas

Valerianna said...

I'm with everyone... their all wonderful and so great altogether! Especially love the moth.

Rosita said...

Love the forsythia!

Cate said...

Oh, I'm so glad to see that you have prints again. They're all so lovely; it's hard to pick a favorite. However, the delicate legs of the Blue Wing Butterfly Specimen put such a smile on my face, that one must be my favorite.

Nicole said...

Hello Golly,
I realy love those new paintings. They are beautiful! But i think a like al your paintings ;)
The most beatiful is, i think, the blue wing butterfly. I love butterfly's (:
greetings Nicole from the Netherlands

Mara said...

Hard to choose !
Beetles ? Nest ? Acorns ? Winged Maple Seeds ?
Let's say Beetles 'cause the composition of 'entomologistic' frames are fun.
Love the way you use watercolor,
Best wishes from France,

Stephanie Gentry said...

I adore all of them,
but I especially love, love, love the beetles and weevils.

Charle Ricci said...

Hello Holly,
I'm so happy to see that you are offering prints again. It was a very difficult decision, but I think my favorite is the feather print.

dawnsflute said...

the blue winged butterfly spoke to me as I observed the intricate but simple pattern that weaves through each wing . . . as if to tell a story of the journey it has made thus far . . .

MILLY said...

I love the Yellow throats bird print because it also has the little yellow ladybirds and it is just so lovely. Of course they are all beautifully painted and make a great set.

R R said...

Love, love, love the yellowthroats! It was really hard to choose only one, though.
Nice work Golly!

Karen L R said...

I have several of these in your fabric version, tucked away in my sewing cupboard. I'm looking forward to putting them together in a quilt this fall.

I have not seen the acorn print yet. I think it's pretty sweet and simple.

Twirly Bird said...

Blue wing butterfly is my favorite. I just love the natural colors!

Rosemary Washington said...

The birch trees. I love them all, but I'm especially drawn to trees.

Kelly McMichael said...

beautiful. Of course I want one! They would make great Christmas presents, too. Will have to look into that!

bree said...

Lovely! I really like the maidenhair fern, winged maple, and the mossy log.

Kathleen Maunder said...

Well that was silly. I was the first to post a comment but didn't mention my favorite! Once again, I wanted to say that the prints are beautiful which is no surprise. I could be happy with any of them but I particularly love "winged maple seeds".

Mary C said...

Thank you for the generous giveaway! A year ago we did a bit of remodeling in our living room, including adding some original art, including some of your work. It would be wonderful to add the maidenhair fern to our collection! Congrats to whoever wins.

TheFairyyellowbugQueen said...

Hi Golly, you generous woman!! Well without a doubt I knew immediately that my choice is the birch trees. Awesome art!! Please toss my name in to the mix for a chance to win your glorious giveaway. Thanks! *smiles* Norma

kate said...

I could never pick a favorite. If I'm lucky enough to win any of these I'd be happy. Fingers crossed!!!

passifleur said...

My prefer is beetles ans weevils, merci!

Beeline said...

Not fair making us choose a favorite!! Love them all.
If I have to pick, then it's a tie between the three feathers and the eggs in nest... but really...

Suzy Taylor said...

Ooh - should it be the nest or the feathers? They're both so beautiful. They're ALL so beautiful. I'll go for the feathers!

Msnewfieilogist said...

Amazing artistry.. My favorite is the Butterfly :)

Mimi said...

They are all amazing, Holly!
So difficult to choose just one. I am partial to the nest, though.....

Artfulife said...

They are all my favorite! Love your art.

Caitlin said...

An amazing collection :) I love ferns so it would have to be that one. Thank you!

Louise said...

How does one choose? They are all absolutely beautiful! I think after much umming and ahhing, I would love the blue wing butterfly specimen. Stunning, stunning work! Thank you for the opportunity. :) x

emma said...

oh this is exciting, I think I am going to get a few for my wall. I like the nest, the freathers, maidenhair and the beetles.... impossible to choose but maybe the maidenhair brings back memories for me.

Heather A said...

Oh, wow! I'm such a fan. The agony of picking just one (for now). I'm going with Winged Maple Seeds. LOVE IT! And it reminds me of my kids watching them twirl to earth on our front lawn.

Anonymous said...

So beautiful and difficult to choose a favourite... it's a tie between the eggs and the feathers. The eggs in the nest remind me of 'no other planet can be as beautiful as this one'. The feathers remind me of my love bird that I dearly love and he loves the make papersnippers for me to use as nesting materials.

Glad I happened to come across your site :-)

Kelly Welter said...

I think I love the butterfly best.

Genevieve said...

They are all so lovely but my favorite is the fern.

Anonymous said...

I love all of your work! Such beautiful interpretations of nature. Very hard to pick a favorite, but, if I have to, I choose the bees (in honor of our new adventure in beekeeping). Thanks for sharing your talent with all of us!

artist said...

I LOVE all of your work but I have to choose the acorns - that was how I found your blog, a long time ago.

Thanks for this new giveaway!

Patricia said...

The acorns please! And thank you for this wonderful giveaway!

Creativity Cake said...

I love all of your work, but if I must pick, it would be Robin's Bird.

Anne-Marie said...

What a lovely giveaway. It would be a hard choice to pick only one!!!

MagaMerlina said...

I love all of them but my favorite has to be beetles and weevils.

rosemary said...

I LOVE the birds nest print. It's beautiful!

Deanna said...

I love them all and it would be hard to choose, but I'd like the chance!

janie said...

If i have to pick, i will say the blue winged butterfly BUT I MUST SAY... I LOVE THEM ALL. your work is wonderful!

zzzpuck@aol.com said...

When I was growing up in New England, the forsythia bush was one of the first flowers to bloom after the long, cold, grey winters. The bright yellow blossoms represent spring to me so that print seems especially lovely to me. They are all so pretty.

susansorrellhill said...

When I think of Etsy, I think of Golly Bard!

It's not nearly as nice as owning a print or an original I am sure...but I really like clicking that little Heart on a beautiful painting from your shop...and I especially love including your paintings in Treasuries!

I am looking forward to owning an original some day, my dear. Congratulations on your new prints...they are gorgeous. (Of course!)

Best wishes,
Susan Sorrell Hill (alias Aunt Soup)

Carroll said...

oooh, i love them all! the winged maple seeds and the bird nest are my favorites...thank you for the chance
to win one!

miss polly said...

ah, all so lovely! hard to choose...hornet moth & maidenhair fern though really sent me reeling.

i do love all your work.
take care, p

AG International said...

each is its own beautiful work of art. the spiky nest with the pale blue speckeled ova caught my eye . . . and I like all the eyes peering back at me from that stand of white birch. they blink when I do. flirty little wood nymphs

Lisa said...

I'm so glad you're doing prints...going to order some right now!

Anonymous said...

Ayomide said...

Willow Catkins would be my choice. I love the details. So glad to see prints available.

Carol said...

I LOVE the blue wing butterfly! Your work is just wonderful!

Hédi said...

Wonderful for all your work, I love all of you!
If I have to choose my favorite of all the bugs.

nikheel said...

Bird feathers! i always LOVE your feathers drawings...hope i will get soon...actually all of them are simply awesome :)

Jill M Hodgson said...

All wonderful! But I would have to say the feathers..... to me they are the "signature" piece :)

Anne said...

My oh my!! How could I ever choose a favorite! I love them all. If I HAD to choose, I think I'd pick the maiden hair fern. Delicate and lovely, which pretty much sums up all of your work!

Sadee Schilling said...

You are my favorite artist and I have so been hoping you would offer prints! They are all so beautiful, but I like the yellowthroats and the bird nest the best. The green-yellow and the turquoise blue are the colors of my living room. I think if I won a print, I would definitely have to buy the other to go with it! :) Thank you for the opportunity!

Gill said...

Wow!
I love the Beetles and Weevils print!
Thank you!

Lulu said...

I have always loved the way you capture the maidenhair fern - so delicate and beautiful

Susan said...

I love them all ! 'though I've a soft spot for the Hornet Moths

Fine Fettle said...

Line Katrin said...

Dear Golly. How nice of you to make this give away of your lovely prints. I so much love the colors, lines and softness of your work. My favourite is picture nr. 2 with the nuts. Fingers crossed! Have a nice creative week:)

Art in the garden said...

My favorite is the blue butterfly. I adore your work.

Amy said...

All so very beautiful....the most pleasing to my eyes .... the blue winged butterfly specimen.....Thanks for sharing!

ronnie laforet said...

I do so like the yellowthroats bird print!

Melanie Wickham said...

Wow what a great giveaway! We have made a quilt with several of your woodland fabrics and to have a print with it would be so exciting for my daughter (she has decided the quilt is hers!!) We love all the designs, it's sooooo hard to chose - we love the bees, the acorns and the nest oh, and all the rest too! You choose for us if we win!

Škorčica said...

Hi, Holly!

Beautiful collection. It was very hard, but I chose maidenhair fern.

All the best!

Sally said...

How can I choose!

Hmm... I can't stop looking at the Mossy Log print :D

Anna Campomanes said...

I love the different textures of the bird nest best of all.

spread your wings said...

i really truly love them all but if i had to choose it would probably be the tree stump section.

holly aka golly said...

Thank you all for your enthusiastic response! I'm going to close the comments now and I will pick a name and post the winner here tomorrow morning. Have a lovely evening! Good Luck!
