I have an artist friend who is–get this–giving away ten, as in “10” free portraits. You read that right. Marie Godwin is a very talented artist who is giving away free portraits of you, your pet, or someone else you love. For no particular reason, she just decided to do this one day, right after she woke up from the deep rest known as “sleep”. Artists don’t really rest. We create in our sleep. Well, maybe not on canvas or paper, but our dreams often give us the inspiration for our works. Our muses whisper ideas into our ears while we sleep and pack them away into our brain cells for later reference. I suspect this idea of Marie’s was all her own because no muse would ever claim responsibility for suggesting such a thing.
The contest is running until this Sunday and Marie told me there are still some spots left! You could win a portrait of your hamster or fifteenth cousin, twice removed! Here’s a link to the details:
