I had promised you another give-away when June came around, so here it is. I'm giving away four original, hand-painted etegami from my Japanese Proverbs series, the series I painted in 2010, and which became the basis for my 2011 Sketchbook Project titled "A Collection of Japanese Proverbs and Sayings
I will choose four names from followers of this blog who leave a comment asking to be included in the drawing. If you have strong feelings about a particular etegami, you should mention it, but I can't make any promises. Each etegami is packaged in a clear plastic envelope with my signature on the back and a typed note explaining the proverb. The actual etegami have softer colors than the scanned versions posted here. If you haven't read my earlier posts about Japanese proverbs, or if you've forgotten, do a blog search (see lower down on the right hand sidebar)
for "Japanese proverbs" or "Sketchbook Project 2011" and you should be able to find simple explanations of each of the four etegami being offered. The four winners will be announced on June 10
. I look forward to your comments!
I love your work, so I would love to get one of your etagami for free! :) -ChristiReplyDelete
PS - Mom LOVES the fan - I just gave it to her for her birthday last week. She's looking forward to displaying it at home.

I'd liket to try as well. I haven't thought about painting proverbs. You are always haven't thought about painting proverbs. You are always giving me stimulation.
Well, I just had a VERY enjoyable time catching up on all that you've been doing...beautiful work, as always. I enjoyed seeing all of the Fathers Day sentiments, and loved your prices for "faded". I'm glad that my summer schedule will allow me to return to my regular blog visits!ReplyDelete
The one of the hand is beautifully coloured but any of these would make me very happy.ReplyDelete
I enjoy proverbs in any language, and these are wonderful, as always. I can never get enough of your etegami Debbie!ReplyDelete
