Give Away...



So, here is my first official giveaway, and I think it's a rather awesome first! The winner can select from any of the paintings listed in this post.
I have but one concern and that is shipping outside of the US. I've noticed many bloggers limit their giveaways to inside the country, no doubt due to shipping costs. I read some dos and dont's on giveaways and was advised not to charge shipping. The thing is, I want to keep this open to international readers. All I ask is if the winner is outside of the US, please be willing to pay for the shipping and customs. Another option is I will pay for shipping if the winner outside of US is willing to accept a fine art print, or satin print (less expensive to ship) rather than one of the large original paintings. So please keep this in mind when entering the giveaway :)
Sorry to complicate things...

Mandatory Entry:
1. The ONLY thing you need to do is to leave a comment on this post and be a public follower of my blog. CLICK THE "Follow" BUTTON TO THE RIGHT! Just make sure to leave a comment for this entry to be valid.

For extra entries do the following and leave a comment for each one you do:
1. Add my button to your blog
2. Post about my art and link back to me (on your blog)
3. Post about Susan Brown on Facebook (include a link to the giveaway in your post).
4. Any other creative promotion you can think of let me know and that will count as another entry 
This giveaway will close on Sunday August 22nd.

I love your painting "Southern." A Tennessean, it reminds me of the long car trips I would take with my parents and two sisters through the deep south in the summer, driving down willow-lined lanes to plantations to explore. Your work is beautiful and very soulful.

Your paintings are so beautiful. I'm going to try my hand at painting, but I'm very intimidated to even start! My Great-Grandfather was a fabulous artist and I'm hoping that maybe just a teeny bit is in my blood...hey, is 57 too old to start?? You'd think by this age I would know if I had any talent!

yaya said...

P.S...I added your button to my blog! Thanks for such a great giveaway chance!
