Third giveaway: Familia/Family Print for Mother

As a daughter of parents and as the parent of a son, I love the truth of these words and try to remember them as I go about my day mothering my child

If I had my child to raise all over again,
I'd build self-esteem first, and the house later.
I'd finger-paint more, and point the finger less.
I would do less correcting and more connecting.
I'd take my eyes off my watch, and watch with my eyes.
I'd take more hikes and fly more kites.
I'd stop playing serious, and seriously play.
I would run through more fields and gaze at more stars.
I'd do more hugging and less tugging.
~Diane Loomans.

Hola Claudia and Sergio! Por supuesto que todo es tan precioso que cuesta mucho mucho elegir solamente uno, pero creo que mi favorito sigue siendo Mother and Child Love. Me gustan muchisimo todos los de la madre con los hijos.
Love and blessings,

Gatitoy Diosa (Goddess and cat) would be awesome!

Serpent in orange, as I see it on Flickr, is my personal favorite piece out of the recent uploads. I'm always a fan of warm hues, but I'm really drawn to the dangerous and oddly comfortable feel to the work.

Kathy Crabbe said...

This one is my favorite -


She is lovely, and I esp. love the way you create your stylized trees :)

Claudia, I loved perusing your online galleries and shop. I had a smile on my face the whole time.

My favorite item in your etsy shop is Love Goddess.

I also liked your jewelry. I am so inspired by the different ways you find to express your creativity...painting, drawing, photography, jewelry, poetry, web design, teaching, videotaping about important issues. You are the most prolific artist I know and I'm so happy to be your friend!

And I love the print you are giving away. Your work is filled with love and it comes across over the internet.

Hola! Lately I've been really into "Hermanitos"...I just really like it a lot! Maybe because I always wanted a brother. I think its very sweet and different from a lot of your other work.

I have been meaning to stop by much sooner but time just caught up with me. I've just placed a link to this give away on my twitter and I took a few minutes to look at your etsy shop. There are SO MANY pieces I ♥. I think my very fave though is "El Olivo Lloron". I feel so much spirit coming through and also appreciate many of my favourite colours in the piece. Thanks for this wonderful give away.
