One World One Heart Giveaway

Welcome to the One World One Heart giveaway blog hop! Click here for the complete list of participating bloggers.

Hi everyone!
What a beautiful idea to share ideas and meet other creative souls around the planet.
Looks like I wont be getting much sleep for the next few days looking at all of these amazing blogs...only joking...I love my sleep! I might give up the vacuuming instead!
I am a mother of 2 gorgeous girls, Aussie artist/singer married to a wonderful Mexican/American(honorary Australian as he has been here for 24 years now!)
We live on the beautiful South Coast of NSW in a mudbrick casa...I'm lucky to have my own purple studio in the backyard and my husband enjoys his recording studio which is right next door to mine...our three cats believe that they are actually the rulers of our little kingdom and they're probably right although Miss 17 would most probably disagree and Miss 13 would confidently and quietly "Know" that she is really in charge. My husband patiently awaits the day when maybe a "boy" grandchild will help to correct the unfair amount of female energy in our household. My giveaway is this small mixed media piece just completed on the weekend. May it bring a little peace into your world :)
Tracy x

"The Bliss of Silence" unframed, unmounted, acrylic and felt marker on watercolour paper 9cmx16cm

Simply leave a comment with your name and email address to be entered to win.

Open Worldwide

Ends February 17 midnight EST
