I mentioned last week that I would be having a giveaway in September and I'm now all set to go. I guess there was some benefit to having the flu after all. Having a bunch of days off work & being housebound gave me some time to paint something for my 'spring themed' blog giveaway. Yes, it's now spring! Winter is officially over! Yay! With winter over I'm wondering what I'll now constantly moan about. Fear not folks, I'm sure I'll think of something! The painting I'm giving away is an original acrylic on a 10 x 10 inch (25.5 x 25.5 cm) chunky canvas stretcher. It's been given a protective matte finish. It's called Make a Little Birdhouse in your Soul. Yes, I've been listening to They Might Be Giants a lot lately. I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed this band!
I got a little carried away with the adding of the birds. I hadn’t intended to include that many but I was having fun and just kept going. And going. I was aiming for a cheery and chirpy spring kind of vibe and hope I’ve achieved that. If you’d like to win this painting to hang on your wall, or in your tree, or around your neck if you’re into weird big birdy bling, then simply leave a comment saying so. You have until Tuesday 16th September to enter and then I’ll randomly select a name the following day and announce the winner here on Wednesday 17th September. Please ensure that you leave a way for me to be able to contact you should you win. Anybody can enter this giveaway as I’m more than happy to post the painting overseas. Good luck!

Ok then, it seems not everybody shares my enthusiasm for spring. Grouchy ol' Dot!
