New to OWOH?  I have a little story I'd like to share with you. 
Last year, my first OWOH,  I connected with a woman who lives in Montana, Abigail of Rusted Wing Gallery.  I purchased a piece of art from her younger daughter who lives with her in Montana and as life would have it, by chance I happen to also purchase a piece of art from one of her older daughters who lives in New Zealand.  I had no idea they were all related.  This opened the door for Abigail and I to start communicating with one another.  During our first several emails we talked about art, snow,  friends and work.  Then one day she asked me if I was by any chance single and would I be open to meeting a friend of hers who happened to live here in Santa Cruz Ca.  So I said why not... and that is how I was introduced to Ray.  We began with a couple of emails and quickly went into phone conversations that lasted two and three hours.  We had our first date on February 19, 2010.  We will be celebrating our one year anniversary of our first date in two weeks.  
Ray and I now share the same address with his soon to be eighteen year old son Case.  I have OWOH to thank for giving artist a platform to meet each other and share a piece of themselves.  I have met many lovely people and have made lasting friendships.  Art is the language we share.  
In the meantime my life has been fully consumed with my new family...Ray has two older children, Mekenzie and Calhan... and combining our homes and lives.  I haven't produced much in the way of "new" art in my series of work.  I have several pieces going all at once and new ideas for expanding my experience of creating. I'm pushing my art to another level and I can't wait to share what I am doing.   Since I had such an amazing response to the pieces I shared as my giveaway last year I thought I would continue with more of the same.

So for my TWO giveaways, using the random generator on the evening of February 17th, I will send two lucky people their choice of poster.  These are beautiful full color high quality, heavy paper posters.  The choices are either a storybook illustration......or for the rockers at heart...well you get the picture.
ADDED TODAY AT ll:40 AM PST..if you would prefer an 8 x 10 print of one of the illustrations instead of a poster just let me know.
Make sure you leave a comment and a way to get in touch with you, (email is best) in case you win. And don't forget to include which poster is your choice.
And I can't wait to meet some new artist and hopefully make some new friends....I acquired some great pieces last year and would love to add to my collection of art from around the world.  
Good luck, have fun!  
Who knows maybe you'll meet the love of your life if nothing else!

My Dear Juner,

How great it was to hear from you again! Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving your sweet comment - I miss hearing from you too! Wow, how amazing to hear how much has happened in your life since the last time we spoke! I am happy for you beyond words. Just reading your post here brought me to tears - literally. I'm sitting in the airport lounge right now, mascara running down my cheeks after that! What an amazing story you and Ray have, and how great that it came to be from such an event as this! I hope to one day meet you and the one you love! :-) As for your give-away, well...I don't think I need to tell you which I would choose if I was the lucky winner! My husband Cam is sitting here with me now, and he's still determined to purchase the original from you one of these days... so fingers crossed you'll take care of him for us till that day comes! I love your art as well. I hope you continue with your amazing talent, which has inspired me to much in my own work!
I'm so happy to have "met" you, and I hope that we keep in better touch from here on.
Much love and many blessings to you, Ray, and your combined family :) xox

Hi June,,, you are also named for one of my best friends. Your gifts are lovely... but quite a bit outside of my cultural exposure. Was Janis the same era as Rick James? Anyway, nice sharing your blog. I'm a quilter, visit me if u can.

June, what a talent you have! Your rocker series is amazing, but honestly, Finley Heaton has stolen my heart! I would love to have him come live with me in my studio.

Lucys Baby said...

June, your art rocks! Way Amazing...
and I love your story, on Karen Valentine's blog she is having a "share your love story" on Valentine's Day, you should share yours there. I will be sharing mine.
It's a mix of loss and love.
My first name is Janice, and I grew up in the 70's - Yes Janice Joplin, I've always loved her. Your interpretation- Phenomenal!
