October 2011 Giveaway!

Jeepers, didn't I just do a giveaway?!  Oh, yeah, that's right.  Last month I was horribly late so it kind of bled over into the October schedule.  Well, let's get back on track, then, shall we?

This month's giveaway is a return to my 'usual' avian subject matter.  This male Downy Woodpecker is done in colored pencil and is framed in a 5x7 black frame.

If you'd like to win this little fuzzy feathered fellow (aka an avian termite), you must:

1.  Be a public follower of this blog (click the Google Friend Connect button on the sidebar to follow if you haven't already done so)
2.  Leave a comment on this post saying you'd like to be entered in the giveaway or would like to win.

I'll draw for a winner before month end.  As always, I appreciate your support of my drawings, my photography, my blogging!  Thank you!  You all rock!

This giveaway opportunity is now closed!

Arija said...

You have so kindly supported me during this hard time and I feel so guilty that I have not visited more often. A great way to keep drawing so you have these great giveaways. Of course I would love one of your drawings but maybe not just yet since there is no way I can reciprocate at present.

Melodie said...

THis has got to be my month to win! The woodpecker always reminds me of my Hubby when I see one...We used to have an old rotting tree in the back,Ike took it out,that was full of red headed wood peckers that I just loved watching!

trav4adventures said...

That's beautiful! I would love to enter. We saw some woodpeckers this summer over in Arizona and I'm always intrigued by them!

Catherine said...

It's hard to believe it is the middle of October already. Goodness it is going fast.

Hi Tex, As you will know, I've been offline more than on for the last couple of months but getting back into blogging a bit now. Checking out my Blog Roll this morning I see that the Run*A*Round Ranch Report is still right up there with the best of the blogs I've discovered so far. I recall looking at your blog a couple of times back in the summer (when I didn't leave a comment) and thinking that you were sure having a rough time, weatherwise, in Texas. You sure made the best of it, though, and managed to keep a positive outlook through it all. Your drawing here is excellent! I would love to win it, so throw me into the drawing. As always, thank you for sharing, and best regards. John
