Pick Your Pumpkin Painting Giveaway!

It's time for my second annual pumpkin painting drawing giveaway!!  I have painted several this year, trying to get in an autumnal state of mind in spite of the heat.  This year I'm going to do it a little differently.  The person picked from the random generator (I love that phrase) will get to choose a pumpkin painting from what I have left in my Etsy store that hasn't sold by that point....and I have several.  People, I still have to try to sell these things so I didn't want to take any out of the store! Just trying to pay my paint bill, you understand.  Friday, October 7th I'll do the drawing.  The rules are below:


1. Either subscribe to this blog (from upper right sidebar subscribe box) or sign up to Follow (also at the right sidebar but further down) If you already get emails or follow, then just go to number 2. 

2. Please make a comment under this post.  I'd love to hear your favorite part about fall!

3. To double your chances you can also sign up for my Facebook fan page (use the button on my blog sidebar or click here.  I use FB for notifying people of sales, sharing links to videos and random comments about my art.

4. If you have any questions let me know at pollyjonesart@gmail.com!

Fall is my favorite season. My husband and I got married in the fall when we lived in Florida. We decorated with pumpkins and sunflowers. I love your paintings!

I love the crispness of the air and the sound of dried leaves moving across the sidewalk in the wind.

My favorite thing about fall? My birthday! :) My birthday is one week before halloween, so I have always LOVED pumpkins. I delayed too long in buying a favorite pumpkin of yours a year or two ago...I was so mad at myself. I would love to win one of these little beauties!

Fall is my favorite! I love the crisp air and apple and pumpkin candles....and of course my birthday! :)

How do I love thee, fall? Let me count the ways. I love pumpkins and all things pumpkin--pumpkin muffins and candles and lattes. I love all those yummy spices that come with fall--cinnamon and nutmeg and allspice--and the cool mornings and evenings. And I love finally getting to unpack my sweaters and scarves--hooray! Basically, I love almost everything about fall except the allergens it brings. :) What a lovely season! And what lovely pumpkin paintings!

I didn't realize you had a FB page I just posted a link to one of your paintings the other day!

Ironically what I love about fall is the PUMPKIN flavored everything that comes back into vogue!

I LOVE almost everything about fall. Now that we live somewhere where the leaves actually change, I love all the beautiful colors. But I also love apple cider, candy corn, and pumpkin desserts, which you can enjoy whether you have beautiful trees or not. :)

I would love to add one of your pumpkin paintings to my fall decoration collection.

It was so good to see you last weekend!

My favorite part of fall is caramel apples and delightful spooky gray skies :)

I LOVE this pumpkin collection of yours! I've been admiring them for quite a while - love how you incorporated some mixed media into them.

The best part about autumn for me is all the baking. I love seasonal foods and there's just something about the smell and taste of fall spices. :)

Such great pumpkin paintings! I would love to add one to my collection.
Fall ushers in the holiday season and brings with it a chance to spend more time outside admiring the changing season. A fall evening on a porch with a cup of coffee and pumpkin bread, the best.

I love EVERYTHING about fall! I love the feeling the heat fading away, the smell of cool air, the butterflies, the kids being back in school, all of the activities, games & festivals, and the holidays being just far enough away to be happy thoughts rather than stressful ones. : )

I love the crispness in the air, starting to rug up again and walking through drifts of autumn leaves.

Fall means Halloween- a chance to transform pumpkins and myself into some faux-sinister alter ego.

I love the cool crisp air and the colors of fall. It doesn't hurt that my birthday is in October so that adds to the fun for me. I love your pumpkin paintings the best, and have tried to do similar myself after taking a painting class last fall, I need to get back to that again! I subscribe to your blog through google reader and have "liked" your FB page for a while now. I really hope I win!

I LOVE everything about fall! The crispness of cool mornings and the energy that it seems to stir in me. I love to be busy decorating, cooking and planting. I think it is is my favorite time of the year!

Nicole Atkinson said...

I love Fall because I live in Florida and the weather FINALLY cools down a little! Unfortunately we don't get all the beautiful fall folliage that other parts of the country enjoy, but the beautiful colors of your pumpkins would defeintely make up for that! :-) The other best part of Fall is HALLOWEEN!

I added you to my google reader a while back. Back when you posted pics of your living room. I always like seeing what you do.

Lael said...

I love getting your emails in my inbox and being freshly inspired and challenged by your thought processes and color usage. I'd be honored to own a piece by Polly!
