Paying it Forward

Last night I came by an offer that I couldn't refuse. Jeanette Jobson is offering a piece of art to the first three commentators who respond. In response, they agree to give away three somethings, publicly on their blogs. The idea is to "pay it forward" or give something without receiving anything back - because we all have received non reciprocated gifts. I love Jeanette's work and I just couldn't pass by an opportunity to have some of it.

So, I am offering the first three responders who leave a comment their choice of one of the following:
  • graphite portrait of an individual, 9 in x 12 in on Bristol board, based on a reasonable photo (reasonable meaning, if it's too blurry and I don't know you, I doubt it will be all that successful)
  • colored pencil or pen and ink work based on a subject you suggest and I agree to
  • or if you have no preference, something of my choice
I will aim to get you your piece as soon as possible, but as it is a busy season, I'll say by the end of January 2008. In return, you must give away three somethings.

Finally, Karin Jurick has produced another video, this time on YouTube. You actually see her paint this time - a fascinating, worthwhile ten minutes. When I first saw her art, I thought to myself "I'd like to do just that, with CPs." She's one of those artists that can create magic on canvas out of seemingly any moment. Watch her work her magic here.
