Fabulous prizes once again!!! Guess who got their tickets? I did. Thumbs up

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, I surely hope I win this time and my name is the first drawn. I'm looking at a drop dead gorgeous Scarlet Rose Mallow which was painted with love and would look amazing on my wall. I have a *lot* of bare wall space.

Got my tickets!
Lovey dubby There's going to be a long line for Sharon's beautiful painting! I showed the photo to my husband and told him that prize would be the first chosen. I told him about the gorgeous painting that Sharon offered as a raffle prize awhile back and how everyone was hoping to win it. He asked me why didn't I just buy one of her paintings. @Sharon ... do you take orders? Green Grin!

@dave, since this time non-USA-residents can participate for Sharon's beautiful painting, .... just in case I do not win the painting, do we have the right to participate for the other prices as well and derive them to somebody of our choice? Everybody here has special pals!

If you win and if Sharon's prize is still available, it's yours. If you win (2nd or later) and Sharons' painting has been taken, then you'll have to choose a US resident to take it on your behalf (or take the 50 acorns instead.)

It is especially generous of Sharon to make the painting available as a prize to whomever wins it no matter where they reside. Our members in other countries have a shot at this one!! Hurray!

And thank you all for your very very kind words.

Truth is, the thought of one of my paintings hanging in another country is as exciting as having one hanging in another state. I have a list of all the states where my paintings are. Actually by now, there are very few states that don't have at least one of my paintings, but there are only three paintings in other countries. It's just great that so many like them. Thank you so much. Smiling

How nice of @Sharon to offer one of her paintings among all the other fabulous prizes in the Not a Raffle Raffle. I am so fortunate to own one of Sharon's pieces of artwork. It is so special to me. And since you know I am unlucky at contests, I know someone else will be as tickled as I am to own one. Good luck, Everyone!

What a beautiful painting. I would love to win it, but sure hope one of our out of country ATP members win it.
If I win it I will have Dave do a drawing from the out of country entries, and I will give it to them.

Thank you Sharon for such a generous raffle gift.

Thank you Sharon for such a generous raffle gift.

I had just enough acorns to buy 1 ticket. Lynn, I hope you win so Dave could do a drawing, as you suggested, to give your prize to out of country members who participated. Thumbs up *Blush*

It would be amazing to have that happen.
I so love the painting Sharon did, and I won in one of the early raffles. Everyone comments on it when they see it.

Sharon,
How cool that you know where your work is! I have a list of states/countries I've sent seeds to but your list is much more impressive.

Have you ever done a thread of your work so we can see more of it?

@Lalambchop1 thank you. Lovely words. I lived and taught in Louisville before I moved here so I have 10 years of painting experience as well as a lot of friends there and about 30 years of painting and friends here, so that covers a lot of paintings and would take up a lot of posting space. And I don't have digital images of many of those early paintings. However, without digging out my list I do have a digital image painting from the early days of Dave's Old Garden so I can go back at least that far with pictures.

A lot of them are bloom paintings, but not all. The most 'slightly abstracted' one, done maybe in about the early 2000s now lives in Maryland. The bad picture but one of my oldest Cubits paintings lives in North Carolina with @Vic . The one that @valleylynn has is maybe here on ATP in one of the oldest raffle articles that @Dave wrote. There's also one in B.C. with @mcash70 on my old computer, others too, but mcash and Lynn's are similar. Not all the old paintings have been transferred. @Calif_Sue also has the Sunflower Raffle painting, so that one is in California.

Your idea of a thread for them is a good one but probably Cubits would be the best place for that. I'll let you know. Again, thank you for the idea.

So this will be my Winter of Painting. I hope I can catch up with all requests then. I love donating to the 'Not- A Raffles' because it gives me a push into a new painting goal.
In N.C. with Vic. . . a rotten photo but the painting is one of my favorites, a much brighter creamy yellow . . .

A few others, some slightly abstracted to fit a request, some flowers, some not, but usually always land . . .
