The Forgotten Brush Giveaway!

Laura over at the lovely Forgotten Brush is currently running a pretty swell little giveaway on her blog, and one of my mini paintings has been included!

A Little Windy is a 2.5x3 framed watercolor. Laura was looking for donors to her giveaway and I contacted her over the holiday. Definitely go check it--and her blog-- out!

StudioHaus Blog
