An art give away!



See with new eyes.

Those are the words stamped on these collages that I made a while back.  The message on each one has been important for me in my own journey. Continual reminders to keep my heart open to love, to have courage, to really see the world around me.

The reason I’m putting them here is that I want you to have them.  I’m giving them away, no strings attached.  Liberating a bit of art into the world, as Kat would say.

It is surprising to me how much courage it takes to do this. You have no idea how long I have worked on this post, or how many times I almost deleted this. 

The important thing is that this is what I really really really want to do.  Learning to honor the artist in me includes having the courage to give away something I have created.  

I will send these three pieces to three different people.  If you would like to have one of these please leave a comment on my blog on this post.  *Or if you subscribe by email, simply reply to the email with a message that you would like one and I’ll add your name to the drawing.

On Wednesday, May 15th, at 10:00pm EST,  I will close this give away, and choose three names from those who have left a comment on this post.  I’ll announce the winners of the drawing  in a post here on Thursday!

Have a fabulous Monday!

  6. Deborah, sometimes we get held back by the oddest things. Fear can spring out of almost anything. I'm glad that you posted this blog. Your art is lovely. I would be honored to enter the drawing!
    Have a beautiful Monday.

  7. Deb! Ahhhh….that's me taking a deep breath mixed with so many emotions.

    These are absolutely gorgeous – soft, gentle, quiet – when I look at them I think of a warm hug. And I love the words, such perfect reminders.

    The fact that you felt so much fear in creating this post/putting this out there but did it anyway, makes you that much BRAVER – that much more of a superhero!

    We need to get you a cape, my friend. You're amazing!

  8. Wow! I love your art. And yay you for doing this. I especially love your reason: Because you want to (and to "liberate some art into the world). Wish more of us would leap in the direction of our hearts' desires.


  9. I know just the one who would see the artist behind these pieces though she doesn't know you. If it is meant to be, she will get one. If not, I have every confidence the Universe will provide. Thank you for your courage and your beauty…inside and out.

  10. So proud of you, Deb, for taking this step. And I'm amazed . . .your art work is pure beauty–how could you EVER be afraid of "putting it out there"? Doesn't fear do crazy things to us?

    I would be honored to have some of your art in my home.

  11. How thrilling to be honoring your artist self by sending your art out into the world. And such beautiful art it is. I love each piece and the evident love that has been poured into each piece. Kudos to you for pressing that Publish button.
