how 'bout a giveaway?

While I'm still wrestling with mammoth ivory (better, but not perfect, but it'll do, but OMG I don't even know how to start this image!), and starting a ginormous sketch for a graphite drawing (holy wow, really does it have to be THAT big?) and desperately wishing that a client would pick one set of sketches over the other for the knife (it's a PERFECT image! Except it's not ferocious, but it fits SO beautifully!)... while I'm doing that, let's do something fun.

FREE ART!



I haven't given anything away for a while, and I've been frustrated and annoyed by the world lately, so I'd like to make someone happy. Making someone else happy makes me happy too. :-) So, up for grabs we have "Foal with Star," a tiny (2.5 by 3.5 inch) colored pencil and graphite drawing. It's framed, a whopping 4 by 6 inches. It has a wire and is ready to hang. Look at that little cutie!

To enter, just leave a comment below and tell me why you want to win! Make sure you are identifiable. If you post under the anonymous category, sign your name or at least initials. No ID = not in the running for winning. I will put the names into random.org on Thursday January 20th, after 10pm and it will randomly select a winner. So you have until 10pm (pacific) Thursday to enter. The winner will be posted that night. The winner has until Friday January 21st at 10pm (pacific) to claim it, otherwise I re-pick.

Oh, and names only go in once, so you don't need to leave multiple comments, it won't increase your odds. ;-)

I'll ship it anywhere in the world via the USPS. If you don't like having things shipped via USPS, don't try to win it.

Have fun, and good luck! :-)

[EDIT] YOU DO NOT NEED A GOOGLE ACCOUNT! JUST PICK "ANONYMOUS" AS YOUR ID TO LEAVE A COMMENT! (But be sure to sign your name!)

I am secretly a "horse person" that has not fully reached my potential, haha. Some day though, some day!

I admire your talent, and I love your dedication to your work. It inspires me to try harder with my artwork. I would love to have a piece of your work to enjoy and display.

Plus, baby horses are just so cute!

The first and most important reason for wanting some of your work is my admiration for your art. Simply, it;s beautiful and satisfying.

Second, this piece is much more affordable than some of your other pieces. :)

Best luck with the stubborn mammoth ivory.

Ah....the reason you should pick me or should I say my daughter Ashleigh is because it is her birthday today...she is a deprived horse kid ( Dad does not think we have time for a horse ) who is also a budding artist and photographer. Also a pretty good little farm girl who can pull a goat kid if need be.. and can handle the occasional ugly rooster. And last she so delights in giving random acts of kindness and in other people showing kindness... that should help a tad with your disappointment in the world.

OK, I'm in. Hawaii needs more little horses, and as a previous commenter noted, this piece is surprisingly affordable.

Me me me! Apart from being a chicken-crazy-person I just took up a relation with a horse some weeks ago. She's mine in all but name so maybe I too will draw horses and not only chickens...

Ooh, I'd like to win because Addie is a total animal lover. That would make her year!

I'd like to win because 1: Ive never won anything, 2: I LOVE foals - they are so full of life, and 3: because I think you do some awesome work and one of these days, Im just going to have to buy something if I can ever get over debating on what I like! You really do some awesome work :)

Pick me because...one of my favorite cousins is a horse vet in Texas! I would love to send this to her as a present. Plus, I'd love to have some of your grown up art in my life/family. Plus, I have SAVED for ALL OF THESE YEARS the picture of the girl you drew/colored from your sophomore project:)

Katherine... I would love to have one of your pieces - no matter what the size. You are amazingly talented and I really admire what you do. I'm glad that someone in our family has such a great talent. I think Southern Calif. needs more exposure to your artwork as well. Cousin Jenn

"I've been frustrated and annoyed by the world lately, so I'd like to make someone happy." What an inspired statement. It has already made my day happy. Count me in the giveaway.

I want to win for two reasons
A) I <3 horses, and this foal is super cute (and would look great in my room)
B) You wouldn't have to ship it to me, because you'll see me next week!

That's why, haha!

I'm just a huge fan of your art, and owning an original "Katherine Plumer" would go nicely in my curio along with those original signed prints and cowboy hat I have from Ron Smith, Winston Churchill's autographed book and hand written letters, Lee Griffith's art, Weldon Lister's castings, Tira Mitchell's art, Photo's with President G.W. Bush,Original signed books and prints from Creative Art and much more.
Don't you think your print would fit in with these great talents of the engraving world? I do.

Pick me, please. I have a filly who looks just like that except her "star" is more of a crescent moon -- but close enough! :)
