Ode to Vasari and a Giveway!


It's time to confess. I have fallen completely in love with Vasari's alizarin crimson. You know how alizarin can be rather grainy? Well, this isn't. It is the best that I've ever used. Since I learn so much from you, I would like to share a tube of this awesome paint! If you would like to try it, just send me an email (or post it in comments) and on Friday, I'll put all of your names in a hat and draw a lucky winner.

Thank you for your daily inspiration! I appreciate it!

I think I'd like to try that aliz crimson. I use W&N paints mostly, so it's always good to try something new.

Thank you, everyone! I will be putting your names in the drawing. I appreciate you! :)

Beautiful as always, Darla.

I'd like a chance at that Vasari. You know about 10 ways to get ahold of me if I win. :D

Darla McDowell said...

Thanks, Kari! And you bet! I'll add your name to the hat! :)

Darla, another beautiful painting. You are truly becoming a master! Thank you for the tip on Vasari's Alizarin Crimson. I have several tubes of Vasari paint, but not that color. I guess it's time to break the piggy bank! Their paint is luscious, but pricey, right?

Darla McDowell said...

Thank you, Linda! I am getting ready to do the drawing, and I will add your name, too. :)

Good luck, everyone!

I'm sold, I'll purchase a tube of it the next time I place an order - I haven't tried this brand of oil yet. I love the painting, it's stunning. . .

Darla McDowell said...

I think you'll love it, Lisa. And thank you! I always appreciate hearing from you, sweet girl. :)
