The final painting in the 12 Days of Christmas is The Colors of Night. This one is ready to hang and needs no frame, but you can frame it. 

*This is our last day. Remember the final will be chosen AFTER two days because the blog comes out on one day but it is emailed the next to my subscribers, so there will always be a delay of one day. 

*If you live out of the continental USA and you win, you must cover your shipping. Just email me to be enter for the 12 Days of Christmas Give Away. Enter just once for the full contest. 

This has been an awesome 12 days sharing the art with you and finishing up sending out this last of the 12 paintings next week.   Sometimes we need a surprise in life that brings us a sense of comfort or excitement. I had it two weeks ago when I received an unexpected gift from a collector that needed a painting for a really special specific situation and budget was critical. I meet their needs, sent the work and was totally amazed when I received a check in the mail for four times the amount I had asked for.  It gave me pause to think, how in a small way I could make give back to my followers. When I was in the studio a day later, I knew it would be to gift out some of the paintings from the year that I had not sold.  They were small pieces with just a few large ones, but I hope they will bring some special joy to the chosen recipients.  

Mary was chosen by God... and her surprise was not something she expected, nor was it something she was ready to handle. Her trust was solid, and her willingness to follow God in His plan was evident. She faced a huge risk, but knew He would take care of her. His plan was the way, the only way.

Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favor with God. You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. Luke 1:29-31
