Time to Celebrate! Giveaway

I just learned that this particular artwork (not mine, but the original Modigliani made in 1919) was sold at at Sotheby's last year at around 5 million dollars. Wowsers!

But this Mr Frans Helens here (that's the name of the portrait)  was looking a bit too serious. So, since he was going to help me celebrate the "almost 500" blog giveaway, I decided to make him more festive.... Doesn't he look happier and more like a Fiesta??






Here's the deal:
To win this painting and celebrate with me, just post here and tell me, Martha, I want to be added to the list.

If you want more chances, post the giveaway banner in your blog, twitter it, post in facebook... wherever you want.

Here's the button if you want to post it in your blog:



Just come again and tell me you posted it, or you are a new blog follower, etc...
 and you'll have your name again added to the list to be the lucky winner 
of the Happy Frans!!    *I will randomly select a winner the 1st of May!

I am working on the video of Frans' re-worked painting but what do you know...? My spankin' new movie maker got a cramp and doesn't want to cooperate (can't save my files, after I spent hours working on it... agh!)
But what is life without computer problems... right?

Anyway, come join the giveaway!!

  8. Martha, I want to be added to the list! :) Fantastic giveaway and thanks for the chance to win it.

    Btw, I had the same problem with my movie maker. What I did is, I had to save each step separately. Starting with the clips that I imported making them into automovie. For some reason if I worked on clips directly before saving them through movie maker, they wouldn't save. That changed when I got a new computer, so it could be something about computer capabilities as well. Hope it helps. :)

    1. Natasha what program do you use to change the format? All I read in the forums is about very frustrated people with the same problem and no solution, and WMM site doesn't help either :o|

  12. Martha, your painting is beautiful. I will have to pass, I am only collecting ACEO's now as I just don't have room to display any more art in my house, so will let someone else enjoy your beautiful painting.

  13. What a great painting! .... I can commiserate with you in the computer issues. It took me forever, days actually to get my video to save properly and then you tube gave me issues when i tried to upload. I couldn't get to your youtube video from your link on your e-mail yet. I'll try again to watch it later....

    1. You did fine, when I don't have many entries I just print names and clip paper, so having them already separate is better, thanks!
