"the big chew"

The time was right. All the entries were in and stacked by the fire. But due to her distemper shot, Luchianna was under the weather and sleeping. Even after her own distemper shot, Baby was primed and ready to go. Good thing we have two paper eating kittens.  I hadn't realized till this point that Baby had the gift as well.
She began by playing with all the papers, then she reached down and grabbed one!
The winner is...drum roll please...Nika! (Note the bite marks.) Happy New Year! 2011, bring it on!

Thanks to all my blogger friends for making this a happening!  I love y'all. Take your pick from the California paintings Nika!
Bedtime now.... I have a painting (at least one) to do tomorrow. Need my brain sleep.

Congrats to Nika! You are generous to give such a gift!

Sorry to hear that Luchianna wasn't up to the task but you have a pretty sweet pinch hitter!

Happy New Year!

Congratulations, Nika! A lucky person, indeed.

You are generous as well as talented, Loriann. This was fun!

Happy New Year!

Dear Loriann,
I'm overwhelmed and speechless! Thank you so much for your generosity, I never hoped to be the lucky one.
Your California paintings are amazing and as I was watching them appear on my monitor day by day, I could feel them open a door in my heart. They all speak to me and I will have a hard time picking The One.
Happy New Year to you and all the readers, may it be luminous and fruitful in all respects.
Thank you for your heartfelt congratulations, Katherine and Melinda.

Thanks for your kind words Kvan and Melinda! Thanks for participating in the big chew. (As I write Baby is practicing for next year...chewing the papers that wrap my paintings for the gallery.) Happy New Year!

Hi Nika and congratulations!!!!
Shoot me an email when you figure out which one is "the One." I am so glad you won!
