First GiveAway For You My Friends!

First of all, I was on a break not out of choice but out of necessity. L'tl A wasn't well...viral flu... "its in the air," the doc said. And then I wasn't well... Hope to catch up with every one of you friends soon...
Thank you my dear friends for your overwhelming responses and all your kind and appreciative words...I am deeply honored and humbled:)))

Anyways, on the happiest note, here's my First Ever Giveway... as part of my first bloganniversary.

Number One:
Calendar 2010, 5*7 inches

Calendar 2010 with my artworks. That which you see here is the foremost page. It is spirally bound and has 7 pages. It has a simple design and is designed by me:) The days are according to the UAE format. Though I had mentioned it to the printer not to do that, they took it for granted that its for the UAE inhibitants:) I made this especially for my yet-unkown-blogger-friend. Hope whoever receives it will like it!

Number Two:
 Naadanpennu, 5*7 inches, photo print of acrylic painting
(parineeta series)


 A traditional Kerala girl attired in kasavu mundu veshti (the dress traditionally called so is handwoven in offwhite with golden thread at the border) with palakkamala (the necklace) and jhimki (eardrops). The cream line on top of the bindi (red dot on the forehead) is made of sandalwood paste and is a sign of auspicion. It is also said to cool ones brain...

Number Three:
Celebration of Nature, 5*7 inches, photo print of acrylic painting

Warli painting, a folk art from Maharashtra, India. To know more about Warli paiting, read THIS. Its a post on Indian art in ATCs. I've painted the same one in 2.5''*3.5'', ATC.


Now, whoever comments to this particular post until the weekend - since a timing is utterly essential to keep track...I'll set the time to be 12 am on Friday (26.10.03) UAE time; their names will go for a draw. The names of each commentor will be written in a piece of paper and the lucky names will be picked by L'tl A. The winners will be announced in the weekend which is FRI and SAT here...UAE weekend - any of these days:) Obviously there'll be three recipients.

I am enjoying all this...Are you???

i want the third one with out any competition.. :)..ha ha

Seema Kozhithody said...

Deeps...ur Naadanpennu is simply gorgeous, the embellishment and the overall look! I really loved it.. but just a genuine doubt...y have u chosen the pink colour for the human skin? Is der any colour restriction for acrylic painting? A wheatish brown,(if possible), if not, a cream or off white wud have been fine, I suppose, also the green colour for palakkka necklace...isnt it so? am just asking out of curiosity.. The Warli painting too I liked well...
