If you frequent my art giveaway blog at www.igivyouart.blogspot.com, you already know the gnus, also known as wildebeests, pride of the savannah.
I'm incorporating that blog into this one.
So the good news is that there will be random art giveaways on *this* blog, and if you're reading this right now, you could win some artz. And because the giveaways won't be as frequent, the quality of the art will be higher, and the quality of my morning will be chiller.
The bad news is that it's not going to be every day. But who could expect that, anyway? It's not like Godiva chocolates are going to start falling from the sky either. So it's more like "expected and mediocre news".
If you'd like to read why the change is occurring, you can hop on over to i*give*you*art and check it out. Or you can finish reading this post, check out the free art, make a comment, and possibly win it. Or you can do both. I'm not going to tell you what to do. I'm not your mom. I'm more like a slightly benevolent cousin, the black sheep of the family who shows up to the family reunions in army boots.
Anyway, in honor of the change, and as a nifty gifty for those of you who got here from there with only a minor stop in Poughkeepsie, the free artz startz today. Here's a sweet little painting of dancing bunnies under the moon. Very yin/yang in a Watership Down sort of way. I think it's Blackavar and Clover, but you can draw your own conclusions. Name those bunnies whatever you want, if you win. I won't judge. Even if you go with Dwayne and Mr. Rumplebottom.
To be entered to win this painting, simply leave a comment, and the Random Number Generator will do the rest tomorrow morning at 9am EST.
In fact, i'll ask you a question, to help it along:
What was your favorite book when you were a kid?
Because mine was Watership Down. From second grade onward, through the movie, after they made me pull the thing tearfully apart in 9th grade, until I found Diana Gabaldon and Tom Robbins, I was deeply smitten with Hazel-rah and the crew. Still am.
i*give*you*art peoples, you are very welcome here. The art may be less frequent, but the quality of the pictures and writing should be better. And you can see a lot more chubby baby, too.
