Update:  I’ll be announcing the winner tomorrow, so take a moment to visit the sites of the other artists in our group.  Good Luck!

I am the featured artist for October’s Common Thread Give-Away and in keeping with the season, I’m giving away a signed, matted print of a mixed media drawing of Chuck, our Halloween Cat (who’s currently on walk-about).  It’s a 5×7 print on watercolor paper.

  3. I have a black kitty (lightning bolt is his name) and I love your rendering of your kitty. Am enjoying your blog!

  4. Full Moon Fiber Art sent me this way. I love black cats…my black cat Sam was with me for 16 wonderful years. My dad’s name is Chuck! I’d love to be a winner!

    1. We’ve got a pair – one that won’t move from the sofa as the days get shorter, and Chuck who’s currently wandering the forest and wilding until the first snow hits.

  5. I too am a middle aged woman trying to get in touch with my creativity–maybe this print will help speed the process–it is inspiring!

  6. I love the eyes on Chuck. Very mesmerizing………………..uh, oh! I would very much like to welcome Chuck to my home. He would fit in with the other 2-dimensional critters around the place.

  7. I love cats and love your print of this one – I also enjoy your blog . Thanks for participating in the giveaway

  8. I love your art and chuck makes an apperance in my screen-saner periodically – where he is sitting on the wood-pile : ).

  9. How beautiful. What talent you have. Thank you for your generosity of this give away. I have just framed a black cat that I made in Kindergarten (I’m 71 now). I have 2 cats and love to spoil them. Thank you for the opportunity.

  10. This drawing depicts everything I love about Autumn! Colorful and cheerful! You have certainly captured the season!

  11. I love this–I truly believe that black cats are GOOD luck! Reminds me of my Nellie found abandoned at Woolley Hollow Park so many years ago and her uniquely musical greetings!

  12. Really enjoy your blog. Love the cat with the pumpkin. Would love if you would include my name in the drawing. Thanks!

  13. Beautiful art Rachel! I am so glad you are part of the give-a-way! You have captured the season perfectly! I would be honored to win Chuck. Thank you for doing this!

  14. I have your beautiful picture of the sleeping lady hill. . .thanks for your wonderful words and art! vmg

  15. I so love black cats, October and Halloween. Would love to add this Chuck to my home. Will he share his adventures when he returns from walk-about?

    1. No, he expects absolute, unquestioning loyalty and servitude from his humans. He disappears for days and weeks into the woods when the weather is nice, and when it snows he shows up looking for a place by the fire.
