Reader Appreciation Giveaway Original Hand-Painted Art Print On Vintage Paper


This week's Reader Appreciation Giveaway is from an Etsy shop I really dig. ArtElem is an artist whose unique take on art really speaks to me. But, instead of me blabbering on and on about it why don't I just show you some of my favorites? I could look at these all day.

I'd like to purchase about four of these fantastical prints (I'm kinda partial to the elephants) and have them framed for Violet's room. I'm also obsessed with the deer and rabbit couples and the fancy deer in love. Fancy deer! Need I need to say more? Most of ArtElem's prints are between $8 and $12 so it wouldn't be hard to create an interesting collage of frames in any room in your home.

The artist says "every artwork is done with great love. It’s important to me that my work carried good cheer and joy to their owner. In my original artworks I try to reflect my own view of our colorful and magical world."

ArtElem has very generously donated the beautiful owl print below for this week's giveaway. I really want you guys to see all the magical little paintings available on Etsy so, if you want to enter to win, just click on over to ArtElem's shop and tell me which work of art strikes you most in the comments below. I'm kind of drawn to the gramophone playing butterflies but I like the tree head and the rooster too. I'm also obsessed with all the love couples So many good ones! Make sure you leave your email and I'll use to pick a winner Wednesday!

I would definitely get one of the french bulldog portraits, as I own a frenchie I'm in love with.

I love the tree head and the owls! These are so cute! I may have to buy one even if I don't win!

March 18, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterSusan

I love the butterfly with the doves. My beloved (now deceased) grandmother used to call my sister her butterfly. And we all believe that my grandmother and her friend are a pair of mourning doves now (long, crazy story, but we believe!).

March 18, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterKat

LOVE so many of these. But I think my favorite is the typewriter. Also love the elephants + butterflies. And the Seahorses. And...and...all of them, really :)

March 18, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterSarah

I would take the King Owls for my boys room. or the typewriter with hearts...or one of the the giraffe prints...or wait, the fancy Lab in the jacket/tie. i cannot decide. what fun to look at...

March 18, 2013 | Unregistered Commenterjess

These are magnificent. I'm especially drawn to the peacock with the pink flower!

March 18, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterCassie

Not angling for a print, just wanted to say I think it's lovely you're featuring these talented artists and bringing their work to your reader's attention.

March 18, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterE.

I love the cat print and Mr. Dog, really all of the cat and dog prints are wonderful. I am thinking the cat prints would make excellent gifts for my mom!
The owl print would be perfect for my 4 month old's owl themed room!

March 18, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterBeccaV

I'm enamored of the gramophone butterflies. Gorgeous print - would be great in my kiddo's room.

They're gorgeous, particularly the crows. But this owl print is super-fantastic too!

I love the Pink Rose, it reminds me of my grandma

March 18, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterMande

I am really drawn to the rooster in the tux. For some reason he reminds me of David Byrne...

March 18, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterRhea

These are great. Thanks for exposing these to us. Deerman is my fav.

March 18, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterRyan Griffiths

Immediately drawn to that charming octopus!

March 18, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterAce

Oooooh, I really like the victrola and the elephants, but I am especially partial to the giraffe with wings. This is because whenever I have to take those pop-psychology quizzes, and I'm asked 'what animal do you want to be?', I always answer giraffe. This is because giraffes are tall, leggy blondes and I most decidedly am NOT.

Hey, a girl can dream. Right?

March 19, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterMichelle

The peacock feathers, definitely!!!

March 19, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterChantal

Love the Kings Owls.

March 19, 2013 | Unregistered Commentergin

Blue Jellyfish is my favourite though it was a difficult decision, there are so many beauties!

March 19, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJemma Henderson

I actually love the giveaway print the most! I used to work with owls and got to watch a family of great horned owls grow up.

March 19, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterAmanda

i think the grammaphone with the butterflies is my favorite

March 19, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterAmanda

I love all of the elephant prints! Can't pick just one!!!

such beautiful work. i'd have to say that the fancy couple on the park bench is my favourite.

March 19, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterSandi

March 19, 2013 | Unregistered Commentermama

These are adorable! I'm partial to all the fancy deer and rabbit couples, and the animals in love.

March 19, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterSamantha

LOVE these, the owls especialy. Your jean jacket looks awesome too.

March 19, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterWendy

Dig the Peacocks. I have a "study" an artist friend did of peacocks. Those two together would look AWESOME! Interesting medium.

March 19, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterPam

Mr. Dog is my favorite. I love his attitude.

March 19, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterSuz

It's hard to declare a fave--all are charming and witty!!! The English bulldog is cute and the deer couple. Thanks for hosting cool giveaways!

March 20, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterNiobe19

It's tie between the unicorn and the flying giraffe. My 5 year old daughter is obsessed with unicorns, which makes me smile, and the giraffe just speaks to me. :-)

March 20, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterLeslie

I like all of them but the octopus ones are especially cool!

March 20, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterLiz

The Cat King, Mr. Dog, Zebra Art Print, Mr. many to love!!

March 20, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterLucy

The "Seahorses" would be great in my fish room!

March 20, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterMeredith Y.

My fave (so hard to choose) is the white rabbit on the settee. This is nice that you have drawn attention to such an affordable (and talented) artist. I like these kindof cross-pollinations. Plus how cool is it that your print ships from Russia?
