oh dear, I am sorry. I have been so tied up by school I haven’t painted anything in forever. 

I hope to get more time to paint soon.

Hello to any of the new folk that “followed” me.
Thank you!!!!
I always thought that once I reached 100 followers that I would do a give-a-way but over night I reached 300. so….. I am doing 3 give-a-ways!
If you are interested just inbox me which painting from my blog you would like, or if you want a specific animal etc. that I have not painted just tell me in the message. I will pick three people at random!  
Thanks again all!

PS. the originals of some of the paintings on my blog are lost or already given away, so you may just get a “repainting”. Oh! and they are all really small so…. yeah, you might be disappointed. Oh! I guess this should have a cut off lets say in a week? so Feb 28 2014?

dawonderland asked: how did you post your photo on RADAR thing on tumblr , please tell me : )

I have no idea how I got on the tumblr radar. I am extremely surprised, I don’t have a large number of followers and most of my posts don’t get very many notes, I don’t even know how the people that run the radar found my blog, there are much more worthy candidates out there!

I Don’t think there is any formula or anything to get on the radar, but producing your own material may help. I researched it quickly and this is a pretty good resource: http://tumblring.net/how-to-get-featured-on-tumblr-radar/

I looked at your blog, it is great! You have a nice cohesion to the pictures you post :)
