Giveaway Winner!

!cid_86D0328F-321C-4D77-B87C-24AD32D14FC4[8]Today is the day! Can you feel the excitement? Oh, I can feel it alright. Today I get to publish the winner of this amazing signed print “Junk Food” by Nathan Rohlander. Most of you know this painting from ABC’s hit show Modern Family; it hangs in Jay and Gloria’s foyer. This has been a super special giveaway for me to conduct because I was fortunate enough to get to know the artist more personally (you can join me in this by reading the interview I posted in July).

First I’d like to take a moment and display some honorable mentions. These are some highlights of entries over the past 4 weeks that I enjoyed reading about various people’s favorite works by Rohlander:

*“Junk Food.  I fall in love with this piece every time I see it.  The simplicity speaks so loudly.....happiness, contentment, and being well! Creates warmth.” –Nicole*

*“Though I am drawn to all of the work in the Different Point of View album, “Hide & Seek” reminds me of childhood shopping trips with my mom and playing in the clothes rack, making temporary forts and hideouts in the department store, this made my mom crazy!  Junk Food is another favorite, every party I have ends up in my very, very small kitchen.  Everyone is just drawn to the kitchen right?  So glad I found this sight and the artist, I have coveted this print since I saw it on Modern Family.” -Ginifer*

*“I still just LOVE Junk Food. I am an absolute flip-flop lover.I own more pairs than I can count and have trinkets and home furnishings base on that theme and would just love to own this piece of beautiful art.” -Paula*

*“My favorite work of art by Nathan Rohlander is "A Different Point of View". I am so obsessed that I had to do some serious investigating to track him down! Winning this piece would be a dream come true!!!” –Glamazon56*

I really enjoyed reading all your entries and hearing your views on the beauty you found in different pieces. Thank you so much for taking the time to enter this giveaway! I’m excited to announce a winner so I’ll get to the good stuff and reveal the lucky follower who will be hanging this beauty on their wall with pride.
And the winner is……
*Drum roll*
Maggie Torgerson, who said:
"Junk Food" is by far my favorite piece.  I'm not an artist, nor do I have any art training, but there's something about the piece that really intrigues me.  I love the perspective of the piece, and that it's not just a painting of legs and feet.  The more I look at it, the more thought provoking it becomes--I find myself visualizing what the subject looks like and what they're doing from the waist, up.”
  Congrats Maggie, you’ve won a really awesome prize and I’m thrilled to give it to you! A huge huge thank you to the generous and talented artist Nathan Rohlander who supplied me with this beautiful signed print to give away.
