  1. My favorite is the 12x12 mixed media on linen that is bronze and has the fan-like leaf prints and looks like a tree.
    The inspiration word is "home"

  2. My favorite (like I told you) is the little one you and M made- I love the colors! But of course anything you make is beautiful!! Something with green, yellow, blue...I would love for my apartment!!

  3. Hi Hannah. I'd like to be entered into your drawing. I like the 30" x 48" mixed media on canvas that has the blue sky and the brown leaves best- I'd want something similar.

  4. i'm not even sure how i could pick a favorite….yikes! but i would love a painting with the theme "new beginnings." i loved the yellow painting you just posted and the bronze one on linen. p.s. i really love seeing your year in pictures. what a lovely year! xoxo

  5. They are all beautiful - I like the nature themed ones (the leaves are beautiful), but in brighter, bolder colors. Your blog is great, I've read all of the posts.

    And while I have your attention, I want more advice on baby-wearing gear! I'll inbox you later :)

  6. I love the 6x6 acrylic blue and pink one!

  7. Congrats on a year of blogging! You've done such amazing creative things this year. I love the 10x10s because they are GREEN. and so lovely. Thanks for the giveaway!

  8. My favorite is the 30" x 10" mixed media on canvas--I would love one of your beautiful pieces for my home!

  9. I love them all but as you know for this series I like the less vibrantly colored ones best of all. My favorites by far are the large gold and black with swirling ginkgo leaves or the horizontal with the same color scheme. The textures and movement are so beautiful and they look like mystical rivers or swirling air to me. When I look at the black ones in the series I think of outer space, the subconscious, magic, and the spirit world.

  10. Of course I LOVE the 12X12 mixed media on linen so much and it is certainly my favorite. But holy cow! The one that is listed two above it, the 30X48 mixed media on canvas (with the blue sky above and the leaves below) is stunning!

    My inspiration word would be patience.

  11. Congratulations!!! One year:) i love everything you create. I even loved the tree you sketched on the package you sent me . Thank you for sharing your family, recipes, interior and talent with us bloggy friends!

  12. Your creations are amazing, but the one that strikes a cord in my heart is the 18 x 36 mixed media on canvas. I loved it when I saw it online and then completely loved it in person. Your blog is motivating to me too so thank you for all you do. If perhaps I am a lucky winner, I would love a piece over our bed called "love". Good Luck to all.
