  1. Such beautiful, evocative drawings... Please enter me!


  2. The Little Mermaid painting still needs a name... I was thinking something with "Resolute" in it. If anyone here has ideas to offer I'd love to hear! :)

  3. I especially love the Little Red Riding Hood piece!

    625 for me.

  4. I'll go with 647. Nice giveaway. Thanks, Paula!

  5. 927. Your art is beautiful, Paula! Thank you for sharing it!

  6. Also, I do love helping with names. What are the titles of the other 3 works?

  7. And I'd love to help with a name! What are the titles of the other three works? (If they're posted somewhere obvious, sorry for being blind.)

  8. 700. My second entry! Love this art!

  9. Hi Christina :) Cinderella's title is "Out from the Ashes - Cinderella Phoenix" and officially Beauty and the Beast is "Two Faces, One Destiny - Beauty and Beast Rose" but I just call it Beauty & Beast Rose. Apparently I name my paintings like people name show dogs. ;) "Red Hood and Wolf" is my placeholder name for the Red Riding Hood one. I figure if there's a long version, it'll come to me eventually.
    But I have a second Little Mermaid painting that's different - it shows her falling - and I need titles to differentiate them.

  10. Hi Kate! my guess is 773

  11. My guess is 876. This art is beautiful! I love the simplicity:)

  12. Your Talent is Awesome..... 504
