what a lovely opportunity. it's very hard to choose a favorite as they are all amazing. having to choose one, I picked the blue wing butterfly specimen. thank you.

R R said...

This is so very exciting!
Everything you make is lovely, Golly, so choosing one single print is super hard.
One of my favorites is the Bee eater bird, but in close chase are the damselfly, entomology specimens and the fruit bat.
Crossing my fingers!

How exiting!!!! Will love to win.

Petrina Anna said...

Thank you for having this giveaway. I love all your work, and your blog is one of the million that I follow that I check the most.

My favorite is so hard to pick because I love them all, but if you twist my arm, I would say the green bird feathers.

Rosemary Washington said...

I would be so happy living with ANY of your amazing prints. But since my name is Rosemary, I will choose the rosemary sprig with the bee.

Laura Terry said...

Oh wow! You continue to inspire me with your generosity and your art! I absolutely love "Bee Eater," but my husband and I occasionally find black trumpets on our property, so that one is special too! I would be thrilled to be the recipient of any of these!

Dena said...

How does a person choose only one!?! I have to say, I am taken by birch trees. Simple and beautiful, as I believe all your work to be.

dixie said...

So hard to pick just one. I think I'd have to go with the rosemary sprig. Just lovely.

Maria said...

You're so very generous. My favorite is the blue plumes.

Michaela said...

How nice! It's incredibly hard to pick a favorite. Beetles and weevils entomology specimens collection is definitely up high on my list. Thanks for the chance to win

Jay Bendt said...

Gorgeous! The bluebird and the feathers are my absolute favorite of this collection, but all of them are amazing.

jeannie brett said...

Your work is exquisite. It brings me great joy. I would be happy, no thrilled to have any of your pieces, though I LOVE your moths, birds, and forsythia.

They are all beautiful! Its almost impossible to chose a favourite, but I love the Bee Eater and also the feathers.

Cynthia Nicole said...

Ohhhh! I love your work & am excited to see your giveaway. I would choose the "Winged Maple Seeds botanical".
I grew up with maples and miss them and their wonderful seeds. Thanks!

kitkabbit said...

I love that maidenhair fern print of yours- however it's so difficult to choose since I love everything you do. Would love to see some more ferns- I love fiddleheads- they are so tender and vulnerable.

KitzieG said...

With such an amazing collection, it's so hard to choose a favourite. Your work is just outstanding!
I would have to say the Bluebird is my absolute favourite,I love how it has its eyes closed - dreaming I imagine!

Decorum Home said...

Oh, I so hope I win!! I loooove your work, it is absolutely beautiful! So hard to choose a favorite but I guess I would have to say that it's the Blue Wing Butterfly Speciman. Thank you so much for giving us all the opportunity to enter the give away!

Katie G said...

So hard to choose just one, they are all so beautiful! After much dithering, my most favourite is the beetles and weevils entomology specimens.

Thank you for the very generous opportunity :)

Beautiful work! The petrified log is my favorite!

Valerie @ LilyEmmeJewelry.com said...

I love the rosemary sprig print the most. We just moved into our first house and the kitchen is in dire need of some art. This would look lovely near the window : )

Mimi said...

Oh my goodness, they are all so gorgeous, but I do love the rosemary sprig.

Happy holidays!

Charle Ricci said...

Hello,
Thank you for the opportunity to possibly win one of your lovely prints. It was hard to pick a favorite, but I'm definitely leaning toward the bird nest print. Thank you!

Sonia / Cozy Memories said...

Oh Holly ! Thank you for this really generous giveaway ! It's been VERY hard to pick a favorite, because I love Nature, I love everything you paint, but I decided it was the Maidenhair fern print that I loved best.

They are all so gorgeous that it is hard to pick! But if pressed, I think my favorite might be the mossy log print.

I think that the Black Trumpet Mushrooms are my favourite xxx

Lynnsy said...

Unbelievably difficult to choose a favorite, How about 10 favorites!!!! But I guess I'm drawn the most to the Bee Eater Bird! Love all your work! Very inspiring!!!

-Lynnsy

missmarble said...

I absolutely love your work! I would love to make a quilt this winter, but am having a hard time deciding on which Gollybard fabrics to use.

The paintings that show in my Facebook feed are the best part of my day.

TheFairyyellowbugQueen said...

Well the robin bird art is calling to me, but gosh the mushrooms even smell through the screen they are so luscious!! Please toss my name into the hat for a chance at a win here. Thank you for your generous spirit Golly. I adore your vision of things. *smiles* Norma, x

I seriously love how you depict everything in your art. I've been watching your updates for when you post new art. =)

wordybird said...

oohh! so hard to choose. i'm a hopeless bird-lover. i guess the bird nest print.

Shu Ning said...

thanks for the opportunity! I love your watercolour illustrations! feels very serene which i feel really captures the allure of nature! :)

my favourite has got to be the bird nest print, though it was really difficult to choose as everyone else has already mentioned.

LuAnne said...

Your paintings always bring me joy, as do your lovely photos of your pups & the Virginia countryside. Thanks for sharing your talents with us!

Joanne S said...

I love coming to visit. Your work inspires me to "look" and "see" what is right outside my door and window. Thank you. I would choose the three blue bird feathers print.

Valerianna said...

So hard to choose a favorite! But, I love the Birch Trees... cause I paint birch trees and they look so very different. I love that. Recognizeable as birches, but such different interpretations.

Stephanie Rasulo said...

Wow, what a cool giveaway! I love your work, your shop was one of my first "favorites" on etsy. If I had to choose one print it would be the one with the three blue feathers:)

emma said...

Oh the 'Heart Entwined' would be the perfect addition to my Golly Bard collection x

Linda McMaster said...

I love the Papillon and Peresil butterflies! The colors and delicateness are what attract me to this one in particular!
All of your works are so interesting! xo

Sadee Schilling said...

Wow! What a generous Christmas gift. Holly, you are such an inspiration. I found your shop on Esty in 2009 just after I opened mine, and from that point on your beautiful work and your graciousness as an artist and business person have been (and continue to be!) an example that I aspire to be like. :)

My favorite print is the bird nest, if I really have to choose a favorite!

Stefanie Seltner said...

I love the blue bird, but they are all so beautiful!
Thanks for offering, best wishes
Stefanie

LuciLá y sus murales said...

a hug from Spain!

Marion said...

Thank you so much for the upportunity!!! it's just too hard to choose one...

Vickie said...

a very difficult decision - but as I have something of a fascination with them, the "Winged Maple Seeds" is my pick, although the feathers are a very close second

Madlibellule said...

C'est GENIAL!!!!!......What a nice idea. I just adore your work and love the way you seem to like to share your passion with others, tehniquement et visuellement...(my english is rusty...)
As for a favorite, anything with blue....like the blue bird wing (but it's a big one????) so the blue wing butterfly is also gorgeous. I will cross my wings until sunday....

Michelle Lodge said...

I love them all Holly, but the morels are my favorite. I hope I'm a winner!

Michelle

Cathy Missaghi said...

Beautiful work! I love all your watercolors , I am always excited to see what you have done. Have you thought about doing a book? Or have you already done that?

rrARTz said...

choosing one is difficult because they are all so beautiful, but if i have to... then the blue wing butterfly specimen! thanks!!!!

Tracy Stokes said...

Your paintings are beautiful, and thanks for all the useful tips on your blog for watercolour painting, they are so useful.

My favourite print in your shop is the black trumpet mushrooms.

S McLean said...

Oh Holly, It's so hard to choose. I have always loved the maidenhair fern, but the winged maples seeds are soooo nice too.

~Suzanne

seaartist said...

Lindsay K said...

It's so hard to choose, but I'd have to say my favourite is the black trumpet mushrooms print. Thanks for the giveaway!

susansorrellhill said...

Most difficult decision, Holly! However...I would have to choose the Winged Maple Seeds from your Woodland Print Collection if I could only choose one...

:-) Happy Holidays to you!

Alison Pearldiver said...

Oh Wow a giveaway, my fingers are crossed. It is so hard to choose one favorite, I have so many but since I must select only one I will choose the Bee Eater. Both my husband and I are big fans of your paintings and blog. Thanks for continue to make the world a little prettier.

Katalin said...

I love all your work..they're sooo amazing Golly...very hard to choose just one favorite! Well I would be happy to win the 'Bluebird' because I just love its colours and it would be a nice pair with my 'Robins bird' print! :)

I love the yellow throats with the little yellow lady birds. Of course they are all lovely and make a great collection of prints.

This was a very tough choice! But I kept coming back to the Rosemary Sprig Botanical, so that's my pick. Thanks for this chance to win.

Karoeza said...

wow, that is wonderful. Would love to own one of them, i will pin it on my inspiration bord.

Lisa said...

SERIOUSLY hard to choose! I already own the bird nest, so I think I would go with beetles and weevils... but in truth, I'd love any of them. :)

Anne said...

Oooh, how exciting, Holly!! Your work is beautiful (and inspiring) and I love checking in on your blog.

Each piece in your woodland collection is so lovely that it's very hard to choose. Pressed, I'd have to choose the maidenhair fern. So delicate and such a lovely shade of green.

Thanks for offering this wonderful giveaway!

Hello. Your works are amazing. Like everyone else,
I had a hard time choosing a favourite.
Your blue plumes are at the top of the list!
Happy New Year! ~ k

Thank you for this opportunity. :)

Eva Marion Seyffarth said...

What a fab give away, thanks! I hope I am not too late …
I love your whole woodland series, but I have always been very fond of the nest paintings, so "Bird Nest" would be my fave!
Keeping my fingers crossed :-)
