I recently won a giveaway hosted by Audrey Walas on her blog. Audrey is a French artist living in London. Her art is simple but stunning and I was the lucky recipient of a poster of one of her paintings. There were 4 that I could choose from, and the choice was not easy because all her paintings are so well executed, but finally I chose this one of a young girl entitled ‘L’Aube’.
L’aube – the dawn – I think Audrey has captured perfectly the first rays of the morning sun lighting this pretty girl’s face. This painting reminds me of my childhood. My bedroom window faced east and some summer mornings I would wake up and lift my face to the faint light of the waxing sun.
It is always exciting to receive something from a fellow blogger for the simple reason that the person who sends it becomes so much more real. Sometimes blogging can seem very virtual – ‘talking’ daily to people we have never met has become so common that sometimes we may forget that there is another person on the other end, living their life, thinking their thoughts. These little giveaways help bring us closer together and appreciate each other a little but more.
If you appreciate art and would like to support a fellow blogger, then I suggest that you visit Audrey’s blog. For any of you that would like to purchase any of Audrey’s fantastic paintings, prints or postcards, please visit her Etsy shop Odette Aussi. Right now, Audrey is offering free delivery worldwide. Alternatively, you may visit her website here.
Thanks again Audrey and keep sharing your beautiful art and pretty creations with us.
