Free 4x6" Print for Kawaii Easter Basket Giveaway!

'Sweetness' illustration for my Basket GIVEAWAY!!

Basket will include this small 4"X6" print on matte photo paper and signed by me. I just did this watercolor illustration last night for the lucky winner of my April 4th Giveaway! I hope you all like it!

I tweaked it in photoshop after it was done, hence that weird effect in the icing.
Anyhoo, I've had such a great time preparing for this GIVEAWAY and appreciate everyone's support. If you're interested in WINNING the basket please be sure to read the rules of eligibility (which-BTW it's open to all!) in the GIVEAWAY post.

I've also been working on illustrations for my new penpals from my Indie 2.0 class - I'll show you those soon!

-Ciao Amarettogirl

your artwork is very special! those cherries look amazing!

March 20, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterHeidi pumpkin pie

that is an added and probably the most special part of the giveaway basket. i must say that while i do not have your talent i do long to have a smidgen of the artistic gifts you possess. i want to thank you for being an inspiration on a number of blessed levels. i have been dormant and closed off for toooo many years. although unemployment has its share of struggles it has provided me with the opportunity to rediscover about me and learn to crawl and soon walk again. MUCHOS GRACIAS!!!!! xoxo

Let me know when I can't get one of those for me, will you? ;)

March 31, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterLilian

this is really nice. I was wondering how long does it take you to draw one of these? And do you watch tv/ listen to music when you do it? I'm curious how you get into the drawing zen...what inspires you
