I couldn’t thank them enough for their original mention, but thought I’d offer their readers a Fab Freebie: one 8×10 watercolor to any lucky reader, anywhere. They agreed.

Thank you SO much for the shout out John and Sherry. Their give-away winner Angela and I have been in touch and I’m busy painting her pair of Guinea Pigs: Piglet and Tigger.

Just YOU wait. They make a most handsome pair…you’ll see.
