~ A Give Away ~

Hi Folks!
well I thought I would list this on ebay tonight,
... but I've changed my mind...
instead,
I will be giving it away to one lucky person~
all you have to do is leave a comment for me here on this post,
and you will automatically be in the running for the random drawing
to be held on Wednesday, May 19th at 6:00pm....
for a better chance at winning,
become a follower of Midnight Farm & I'll enter your name twice!!!!

the picture is painted by me in acrylics on canvas artist board...
then stained & sealed with a beeswax finish...a sweet little Witch dressed in her Strawberry Best
is out at midnight, under a crescent moon, tending to her tender strawberry patch...
the painting measures approx. 9.5" x 7.5" ~
The frame is a wood frame that I've hand-painted an old Oxblood Red color, with Pitch Black corners...
it has been severely aged and distressed, then given a rub of blackened beeswax for a mellow glow...

it is not under glass, and has a brown paper dust cover on the back,
with a length of twine for hanging...
signed both front & back by Li'l Old Me.

it would look swell displayed all year long, on a wall with samplers
...or maybe propped on a shelf with old strawberry make-do's ~

Best of Luck to you!!!!

Blessed be!
Lori
