A Joyful Easter Giveaway!

(The Giveaway is now closed.
Thank you for all your comments.
I will announce the winner in the next post.
)

 A very blessed and joyful Easter to all of you,
my wonderful blog friends and visitors!  

"Gentle"

St. Augustine once said 
“We are an Easter people and alleluia is our song!”
and indeed, Alleluia is my song!
And to celebrate, I'm having a giveaway!
I was preparing for a 300 follower giveaway, 
until I realized that Easter is an infinitely better reason to celebrate!  

My giveaway for Easter is an original 5.75" x 8" mixed media piece entitled "Gentle."  I made it using colored pencils, watercolors and collage on a gessoed sketchpad background.  The flowers on her hair, the bookpaper leaves, the music sheet heart, the buttlerfly and the lace on her dress is collaged on.

For me, this piece is a reminder and encouragement to focus on things above...

"Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God." Colossians 3:1

It is an encouragement for me to speak with love, to listen, to be gentle... (2 Timothy 2:24)

If you like "Gentle," and would like a chance to win it...

1. For one entry, simply leave a comment on this post.

2. If you are a follower and would like a second entry, please leave a second comment on this post.

3.  If you would like third entry, make a post about the giveaway, or post it on the sidebar of your blog and link it to this post.  Please make a third comment on this post to tell me where you added it to your blog.
You may use this image
I will be using the random number generator, so please make sure you leave me a comment for each entry you make.  Since I will be going out of town, I will pick the winner after May 22. 

May you have a wonderful Easter season!
