An Artists giveaway...I'm IN!

Debbie at 'reflections of debbie' is having a great artist giveaway this week.

She asks that you post a photo, a fave photo (of your own doing)

on your blog. She will cruise around the web, looking at all these fantastic pieces of art.

She will choose one to make a drawing of.

She has posted some lovely colored pencil drawings

on her blog! Check them out here.


So, I am throwing my hat in the ring. (but I really wanna' jump

up and down waving frantically and scream... Pick me , Pick me...but I won't. I will refrain)

Below, are some recent pix from Brazil (my banner pic is from this same place).

I love Brazil.

I love the passion and the heat, the rawness and the color.

This last trip we took (to the north east state of Pernambuco), we were really able to work and sweat and play with the Brazilians.

We stayed in a beautiful, soulful little town on the outskirts

of a big city.

These Brazilians of little money, but big heart, adopted us as a neighbor allowing us a glimpse of the

town through their eyes.

they laughed and sang and fed us well. So well.

They took my heart.









Check out Debbies' challenge....do post some pix of your own!!
