Giveaway | Intricate

Spring is almost here! 
The willows are starting to open!
The spider wove an intricate web to catch his dinner. 
I've decided to have a little "drawing" to give away this painting! 
In order to be considered, simply sign in and leave a meaningful 
message for me about the painting between now and next Thursday.
I must be able to link to your contact/email information, 
either through your blog, shop or website.
I will pick one name out of a hat at random.
Come back to this same post on Friday by noon EST,
I will announce the lucky winner!
Congratulations Katy!

Nice drawing!!spider's web always is full of mysteries for me!I like to sit and just watch how spiders make their intricate home!!Then I'll feel God and his endless power to creating every single creature in this world. :)

Beautiful piece.
I am always fascinated by a spider's web (though spiders themselves creep me out). The beautiful webs they spin just to catch a meal are amazing. I complain if my dinner uses too many pots!

I'd love to win! Love your spider painting. The delicate authenticity of nature is highlighted by the arrival of spring!
You captured that!

Good Golly Miss Holly- what a beautiful blog!

I feel like this spider lately weaving my web, but I never catch anything... (continues to whine as I go off to browse your blog)....

i have to admit spiders make me a bit nervous, but watching a spider intricately spin a web is simply amazing... such a lovely painting.
and such a lovely blog!

Wow, I almost did a spider web myself. Nice illo.

This is simply beautiful! The blue you've used in the background is lovely & I love all the "blooms" you've done in it. The lettering is really nice, too. I would certainly love to hang this on my wall ; ).

"Oh what a wicked web we weave
when first we practice to deceive."

that's what it reminds me of!
and i like it!

The most beautiful and intricate things often come from nature and you've captured this so well. It reminds me of early morning when the dew catches the web.

Perfect illo for intricate. Your work is so beautiful.

Digital Misfit said...

Whenever I have just finished sewing or painting and I think I am quite pleased with my art, I can go outside and see a spiderweb and be humbled.
Your painting is wonderful. It celebrates the beauty of something we take for granted at best (and despise with a bad case of the willies when we walk into one).

Love it - reminds me of early summer mornings here, when the dew clings to the intricate work of the busy spider,the newly dawned sunlit sky glimpsed through the weavings. The blue you've used here captures that sky perfectly.

Wonderful xx
