Spearmints, GIVEAWAY, 5x7 Oil

*PLEASE* leave me some contact info on your comment! :)
Happy Holidays to all views of my blog! As a gift to all my blog friends I'm going to give this little 5x7 painting to one of you! All you need to do is to tell me you want it, by making a comment on this post by Tuesday, December 8th! In his last years my dad always had a supply of these wonderful mints in the car, near his chair, everywhere he might be. I enjoyed painting the shapes, and especially the cellophane wrappers!

If you are not familiar with making 'comments: look on the blog (if you get this in an email form, look at the bottom of the email. It should say "Posted by Kelley MacDonald on Kelley MacDonald's Daily Paintings..." Click on the BLUE words (it's a link to my blog) then look below today's post - you'll see the words "2 Comments" (or 5 comments, or SOME number of comments), and click on THAT. It will open up a little window with comments made by others, and a box for you to type your comment in. Then if you have a google account, check off that dot, if not, you can click on "Name... URL" and type your name and blogsite, or email I believe. If nothing works include your email at the end of your 'Comment' so I can contact you!

Good luck everyone, and thank you for supporting me with your kind comments all through the year!
Maybe you missed the two exhortations to PLEASE leave me some sort of contact info (i.e. just your name won't get me in touch with you, and there are a LOT of people named 'Chris' out there!). Thank YOU! If I'm sounding desperate, I am... I have about a dozen people I couldn't contact if I wanted to who left comments!

  5. I admire all your paintings Kelley. My dad was a lover of peppermint canes, the bigger the better. I always tried to find one bigger than the ubiquitous tiny canes each Christmas for him. Happy Holidays!

  9. I can smell the spearmint, as real as an icy winter day.
    I left the house the other day with spearmint Life Savers in my jacket pocket, and realized I had reached another marker in my journey to Old Lady - the other pocket had tissues, I am sure.
    Lovely, as always. And it is my birthday week........Enjoy the holidays, VFV

  14. So what is it about these mints and people the ages of our parents? My parents NEVER seem to travel without them (and bought a supply when they reached my house) and my in-laws were always well stocked too! I had to laugh when I saw this painting...it really hit home! Yeah, I'd like it!

  26. Hi Kelley!

    Yes - it would be nice to have one of your paintings... I've always enjoyed the "dialog" you have with "us" "out there". Someday, I swear, Artists will find a way to have a "webinar" or such, with others to paint with others from afar.
    I've always envied the art groups you and others have been able to develop. I'm more aware of groups outside my area, than in my own ( from being "on line".)
    I enjoy your comments, as well as your paintings.

  31. Kelley:
    I love your work and am thrilled to have adopted the teacup and the jar of hydrangeas at the North River Arts Holiday sale. They have a special place in my study and it would be pretty wonderful to have these lovely mints to go with them!! The associations are totally warm and minty! Thanks a ton for offering this sweet treat!

  42. Kelley, I thought maybe if I posted on your Boston Cream I would win that one. Then I realized its your mints..... lol

    No thats just a big lie. lol I did not know you were having a post a comment and have a chance at winning a painting until I read your post on FB. SO GIRL here is my comment!!

    I'll take the mints instead. ;)

    Awesome brush work. It looks like melted saran wrap. love it

    I took a couple of workshops with Ken Auster and he has the same kind of brushwork.

    Good luck and I really need them mints because I just had some garlic bread. :)
