Win a Print in the March Common Threads Give-Away

March Give Away

It’s the first Monday of March, so it’s time for the Common Thread Give-a-way.  Last month Maria gave away on of her drawings.

This month, in a nod to the winter that won’t quit, I’m giving away a print of a watercolor and mixed media drawing of nearby Ice Pond Barn.  The print is on 8×10 archival paper in a protective matt.

If you’d like to enter the drawing for ‘Ice Pond Barn’, leave a comment on my blog.  When you’ve left a comment, take a trip over to the other blogs in our group.

I’ll be picking the winner (using and announcing who it is on Friday morning.

  12. Lovely. I would love to admire this daily in my barn red kitchen! Thank you for your blog.

  13. Barns are so majestic. So sad we are losing so many to the elements here in Iowa. Too costly to keep up and, I guess, they have lost their functionality on the corporate farms of today. Would love to win this print. Please enter me in the drawing.

  14. This is like a ray of winter sunshine! Love your drawings and would love to have this one.

  17. What an exact image of the big red barn on the farm we lived on as kids, even the cupolas crowning its roof!

  18. A lovely representation of our winter, this year. I love the red barn against the white snow. Your print is beautiful. I would love to have it in my home.

  20. Great picture, I hope I win, my birthday is March 9. It would make a fabulous birthday present.

  21. Red barns: so sturdy, upright and strong, weathering the seasons. It is wonderful to see them respected and cared for!

  22. The barn is such a great reminder of the times I spent calling the cows with my Grandfather. His girls so gladly came in from their afternoon grazing to be safely in the barn feeding and hearing Grandfather’s sweet voice and words. Lovely picture!

  23. It’s also the Winter That Won’t Quit here in Minnesota, and I still can’t get enough of it. I’d love that snowy barn print on my wall to remind me of winter>

  24. Love the watercolor + barn print. There is something about snow prints that call to me. Not sure what it is but we have one on our wall that shows a horse drawn sleigh pulling a soon-to-be Christmas tree in the snow. I especially like to look at that one in the dead of Summer. Put a barn in the picture and it doesn\\\’t get any better. Thanks for offering this print up. PS: I have just gone back and read through a number of your recent posts. Except for the \\\”Fox\\\” postings, I had to laugh out loud on several occasions and quietly to myself on a number of others. Really enjoying your blog! Wish I could write and especially paint like you but alas, it is not meant to be. Guess I will have to stick with quilting ….. I do have a barn quilt in the queue though.

  25. Reminds me of my childhood on the farm. We had a similar hay barn. Love it.

  26. I love your work! I have a passion for barns – they are fast disappearing from our American landscape and I wish Heritage preservation societies would take on saving them!

  27. lovely, reminds me of a study I did years ago( 50 ), just know we will all forget this brazen winter at the sign of the first crocus, but your painting will be a wonderful reminder : ) !

  28. In this frozen winter a red barn is a warm and comforting reminder of home. Beautiful.
