with 11 comments

I am so pleased to announce the winner of the painting ‘brambles’, the cover art for my book within easy reach! The winning raffle entry was drawn at my book launch at Westminster Books on June 9, 2016.


The winner is Carol Steel, a long-term follower of my blog and a blogger at . Carol posts her beautiful photographs, her published poems and her insights into the wildlife she sees. Carol also won First and Second Place in the 2016 Writers’ Federation of New Brunswick Writing Competition — Dawn Watson Memorial Prize.


Congratulations Carol!!! The painting ‘brambles’ is yours. Thanks to all those who entered!

Holding the raffles for my paintings has been a very enjoyable part of the process of marketing my book!

    • Hi Pia. I had lots of fun running the raffle. Painting blackberries is an interesting study in using ultramarine blue with some cadmium red and titanium white. I like the look of your new studio! Jane

  4. I am so pleased to have won the cover art for your first book. What good luck for me! And thanks for the mention of my blog and my wins at the WFNB competition this year. I haven’t been blogging much lately because I have been concentrating on my poetry. Thank you again, Jane for sharing your work of art and poetry with the larger world. I’m sure anyone who buys your “within easy reach” will enjoy the memories, the poems and the drawings very much. I am happy to have been lucky and to have won your painting. It means so much to me.
