MARINA who blogs at Letters from Athens!! 🎉🎊🎉 Congratulations!
So the painting will be winging its way to Greece. (No Warren Beatty opening the wrong envelope at this celebration!)
A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who commented. I loved all your ~up towns, and was glad that I hadn’t made the competition about the best name. There is no way I could have chosen a winner! Thank you too if you didn’t enter, but still enjoy reading my blog. It is one of my pleasures to know that in this crazy old world there are people like you who delight in the simple things and enjoy the humanity of others.
If you are really shattered that you didn’t win the painting, you have the chance to buy one! They are in my Etsy shop, AnneLawsonArt. (You can also click on the feather drawing on the side bar at the right.) It is easy to buy through Etsy, but if you don’t want to, email me and we can work things out.
My email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Just to let you know, I am working on larger versions of the trees that are not in the shop. They are 23 x 16 inches (59 x 41 cm). Again, email me if you would like to know more.
And lastly, Happy International Women’s Day to you all! Let’s celebrate the great gains women have made, and work towards eradicating sexism and the barriers that still exist.

Congratulations, Marina! So nice to see such a lovely painting going to a good home. 🙂
I know, from the email from her, that she is very excited!
I bet this will make Marina’s day! 🙂
I think it has, and it is on the way to her ~ so another lovely event in about 10 days.
Lucky Marina! And Happy International Women’s Day to you, too! Here in the US, women are feeling so empowered and purposeful right now!
Yesterday I saw two books in the shop that were photos of women’s marches in response to Trump’s election. The books were full of warmth and positive energy.
Woohoo for Marina! You know she’ll treasure it. 🙂
Yes, I think she will, Sue. I am sorry that not everyone could win. It would have been wonderful to be able to send it to everyone!
That’s great news. How wonderful to be able to send your work to Marina
Congratulations, Marina! Anne’s work is beautiful.
