  68. Oh my gosh, my heart skipped a beat when I saw your painting. Two years ago, my husband won a trip to Laguna Beach. He is from California and always wanted to take me there. He has been ill for 10 years and on disability so we could never really afford to go. This trip was fabulous and it will always be the place of my heart. You are so lucky to be able to live there. It is truly the place of artists and who could not be inspired there! Thanks for offering your beautiful painting! Nice to meet you and I have enjoyed your blog. I also love interior design. Come and visit me!

  99. I am from Tennessee, USA! I am inspired by the geometry of quilts, particularly antique ones with unique designs and a true patchwork of fabrics. One of the best museum exhibits I've ever experienced is "The Golden Age of Couture" which showcased pieces from couturiers in the 1940s-1950s... breathtakingly spectacular, you can bet I went many times :-)

    Happy OWOH! Wow! What a beautiful painting - you've captured the intensity, power and depth of colour so wonderfully yet at the same time the scene seems so serene and contemplative. Such an inspiring gift to us, thank you!

I never know what is going to trip my trigger, so far I seem to jump from technique to technique. I'm hoping I'm gathering all this information for a fantastic "WAHOO". Your giveaway, takes me away.

  185. Hello Paulette! I'm visiting you from the beautiful country of New Zealand... I have to say that I just love your work. I am an artist as well, but never quite got into painting landscapes- portraits are my thing - but your "Laguna Beach" painting is just stunning! You've really captured the essence... it was my home for 7 years before meeting my now husband and relocating here. Three years later I am doing what I love, painting, creating, making art. I'm inspired by the beautiful country around me, people, Frida Kahlo (just to name a few!). I'd love to enter to win this beautiful painting of my old 'home town', and please (if you haven't already) come visit my blog and enter to win my original painting I'm giving away! :)
    Peace & Love,
