a new season - the arrival of donna heart - and a giveaway!

hi everyone!  i know i have been a lazy blogger, but i seriously have had my attentions diverted over the last two weeks.  my dear friend Mel has left us all in search of a new life and adventure to the isle of New Zealand - farewell gorgeous friend!!!  and to add to all the farewell happenings associated with that, i've been working with stewart from Goodwin Media to design my new logo and brand.  so without further ado - here 'tis!...

wow - i never knew it would take so much of my time and attention to get to this!  but i'm really happy with the end result, i think it's perfectly me!  there are some gorgeous bookmarks soon to be printed, business cards, and a few other bits and pieces too.  so now all that is completed, i can actually get to the printers and have some cards ready to sell very soon!  I am soo excited to be so close to having this dream become reality.  if you had told me 5 months ago that i'd be going into small business this year- i'd have scoffed!  But here i am!  and to celebrate the creation of 'donna heart - where art and life collide' my new business, i'd like to have a giveaway of one of my prints.



this print is titled 'she loves red' and will arrive to you beautifully and professionally mounted on foam core backing-and matted with an archival quality black mat which shows off these colours beautifully.  it measures 21.5 x 37 cm (8.5 x 14.5 inches)
all you have to do is leave a comment - no more than a sentence in length, answering this question:
 what do you love?
AND! tell a friend about this new blog. I'll draw the winner on wednesday night (4th Nov) at 8 pm western australian time. 
also, in a couple of short weeks, i'll have my ETSY store up and running with beautiful cards and prints for sale in time for christmas.  I love red - what do you love?
Thanks for stopping by,
x donna

  9. I love my family, my friends, my soul-mates... I love many, many things about this life, but most of all I love the poetry - the things that happen that eons later, you look back on and see the connections, the intricacies and the reasons - the poetry!

  10. Donna I think you were on NET with my brother Caleb? When Mary posted your art a while ago I thought you looked familiar but I didnt see your full name anywhere then. Hi!

    I love your art! Oh, thats not my 'entry' in the comp, but I just had to tell you, its gorgeous!!! It makes me have an instant emotional response, and thats my definition of art.

    Anyway, my one liner...

    at the moment when I think of what I love... the first thing that springs to mind is when my newborn sons wandering eyes connect with mine, his gaze fixes on me, his eyes widen and begin to sparkle, his mouth curves open and he SMILES and then to top it off he gurgles at me.... my heart explodes and I LOVE.

  11. This is so great, Donna - It inspires me to be more productive/prolific myself!
    Hmmm... I love - the color of the sky at twilight, childhood memories, the sun on the tops of fall trees in late afternoon - a cool breeze in the summer, ocean waves, big smiles, laughing until I cry, my bed on a Saturday morning, cuddling, deep conversation, a great book on a rainy day, Christmas Eve, happy surprises, when things make sense, dreaming, moonlight, coming home.

  19. I love hope...whisperings of hope, daring to hope, desperate hope, WILD hope...contented, peaceful hope. Hope that inspires courage and broadens horizons, hope that dreams dreams that are bigger than you are. Hope that looks to possiblity, potential. Hope that creates bubbles of excitement in your heart, brings tears of longing to your eyes, starts up flutterbys in your tummy. Hope that makes you feel safe in the midst of uncertainty and hope that settles into still, sure, calm peace. Hope.
