Can't wait to see who wins.  Who ever gets this will really be able to use it to create some awesome art.

Of course I would love it.


Thank you to everyone who participated in our giveaway!

The winner is...

Mary Hockett Thoma from Spencer, OK, USA!

Congratulations, Mary!

It was inspiring to read everyone's responses about how they would use this book. What a wonderful, thoughtful community we have here!

I am thrilled to let you know that a major publisher of art instruction books has offered to donate books for future giveaways, so The Art Colony will be hosting one giveaway per month for the next 9-10 months! So please come back and check for our future giveaways, which will be posted on the front page of The Art Colony and will usually run the last 2 weeks of each month.

In the meantime, Happy Art-Making!! :)
