Treasures Arrive at my Doorstep
The multi-talented Fannie Narte is also among the most generous and kind art bloggers I have met since my arrival in this blog world.
Fannie celebrated her one year blog anniversary with an incredible ten day giveaway. She gifted lucky bloggers with the most astounding gifts of art and I was indeed one of the lucky participants. The spectacular art quilt, "Words Can Make the Heart Sing" was my prize and I couldn't be more thrilled. The scan cannot possibly do justice to this amazing piece of art. The stitching is incredibly intricate and the colors sublime. You must visit Fannie's Etsy shop to see her art quilts for sale, in addition to the other fine work she offers.
In addition, every participant, win or lose, had their choice of an ATC hand embellished print and I chose the glorious, "Take That Leap." It will serve as a wonderful inspiration in my studio.
Having run out of superlatives to describe Fannie's work, I leave it to you to visit her website and blog and see for yourself the magic that lives there.
My sincere thanks, Fannie, to an artist with a heart as big as the sky.
