December 2014 Giveaway!

A busy month for many, so let's get right to this month's giveaway! It's a bit different than my normal subjects (mostly birds, a few butterflies, and a squirrel or two thrown in for good measure) but for my 36th giveaway, I wanted to try something new. It's a Black Bear drawn in colored pencil by me and framed in an 8x10 mirror-matted frame. (Difficult to photograph. It looks better in person.) :)
If you'd like to be entered in the giveaway, you must:

1. Be a public follower of this blog (Use the 'Join This Site' button on the side panel to sign up if you haven't already done so)
AND
2. Leave a comment on this post saying you'd like to win, want to be entered, etc. Be sure to say you want to be entered!

Thanks, everyone, for your continued interest and support! I'll choose a winner sometime later this month (or maybe after the holidays...)

This giveaway opportunity is now closed!
