Painting with a Purpose: Week 1 Giveaway!

This little fishy is ready to swim into your home, bringing with her lots of love and playfulness for a summer of fun and hope!

As part of our Painting with a Purpose Art a-Thon to raise money and awareness for Half the Sky Foundation, Cowgirl and I collaborated on this painting as a means to celebrate the gifts of art and friendship. This 8 by 10 inch rainbow fish is the first of four paintings we will be giving away to anyone who makes a donation to Half the Sky Foundation and then leaves a comment here or through personal email to me. You only have to donate once; but each Friday you must check back in and leave a comment showing your support for our campaign. Full details can be found here.

Cowgirl will draw a name at random on Monday to select the winner, so be sure to check back or leave contact information should you be the lucky winner! I am still debating adding a wire hanger and may leave that decision up to the winner.

If you haven't donated yet, look over to the right sidebar and click on the image that says Donate Now. This will take you to our pledge page. If you do not like to pay online, there is a place for you to download a form and mail in your donation.

Then come back here and leave a comment or email me at: lishofmann(at)novia(dot)net. The drawing will be from comments left here and emails. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Cowgirl and I are super excited to begin our second piece. And we are amazed and grateful for everyone who has already contributed to this worthy campaign.

Our little fishy is signed by both of us (Cowgirl's preferred nickname is C-Dog) and she is looking forward to hearing from you this weekend!

  1. Ava says: Your painting looks beautiful. I like the friendship fish. Way to go girls!

    Diana says: We just donated and love this idea so much. We'd be honored to hang your artwork in our house if we happen to be one of the lucky winners. It would be the first piece of art hung in our house! Looking forward to seeing more of your creations.

  2. Beautiful painting. I think what you are doing is wonderful.

    That's great that you made a second tote. I'm sure you feel more confidant about your sewing skills after making two. I know you will do an amazing job on the altered board book. Can't wait to see it. Thanks so much for leaving me a comment and letting me know that I was able to encourage you in your sewing. It's feels good to make a difference.

  3. This friendship fish looks very happy! :)

  4. Love your friendship fish but I guess I missed entering this drawing since I didn't leave my comment yesterday. Oh well, maybe next week I can get my comment in on time. It's hard keeping up while I'm on the road but I'll try!! This is such a great way to support a worthy cause!
