Lucky 200


Greetings All-
It’s hard to believe, but next week I will file my 200th post. 

Every Sunday for nearly 4 years I have written a blog post for your perusal.  To be honest, when I started this endeavor it never occurred to me that I would write 50 posts, let alone 200.  I’m pretty impressed with myself if the truth be known.
I believe a little celebration is in order.  With gifts - for you! 
Here’s the deal:  If you leave a sweet little comment, or any comment at all, I’ll put your name into my lucky plein air painting hat. On Sunday January 29th , 4 years from the date of my first post, at 9am in the bright shiny morning, Handsome Husband will pick out a name, and before you know it a lovely little oil painting will be in the mail addressed to the winner. 
6x6 Elms at Dusk by Patricia Scarborough could be yours!
I‘m getting chills just thinking about it. 
Quick!  Comment!!
(Btw, what a time to not be able to publish comments immediately!  Hang in there, and do comment, and I'll get this computer situation taken care of asap.)

Well, of course I want to add my name to the hat! But, mostly, I just want to say that I enjoy your blog, and I love your paintings. So glad I finally got to meet you! :)

Oh Patty, you just HAD to dangle that painting in front of me..... I SO admire your work and your ability to talk about it entertainingly. Your consistency impresses the hell out of me. Pertinacity in action. Here's to 200 times 200 more!

Patty said...

I am honored that you've all been keeping track of me. Hugs to you all!

Gosh, you're all being so kind! I'm getting all wiggly just thinking about sending this painting off to one of you.

"Blogs every Sunday."

"Your latest prize."

I've been missing out! I always catch the blogs you link on Facebook, or thought I was. I haven't quite gotten into following blogs outside of Facebook, though.

How in the world did we even meet? I just can't remember anymore. I can tell you this: I smile whenever I see your blog show up in my feed, and I always enjoy "the visit," and the art.

Congratulations!!!

Patty said...

Gosh Vickie, what a sweet comment! I'm a bit spastic about FB, yours is a good reminder to keep the link love going.
So glad I make you smile!

Congratulations on such a milestone, Patty!
You don't have to put my name in the drawing, since I already own a wonderful little painting of yours. (Not that I wouldn't love another, but let someone else get this one, kay?)

Patty said...

You are a very kind soul,Karine. Just one more reason to adore you from afar.
