One World One Heart 2011 Blog Event - Welcome Blog Travelers!

                                      
                                                 One World One Heart Blog Event

What choice do I have? I'm Barbara Rosenzweig and I love gardening, have been doing it for over 40 years (am I giving away my age?), and love each flower's intense colors and textures! I have absolutely no choice but to try to capture their beauty in my watercolors. Travel, too, gives me wonderfully inspiring landscapes to paint, here in Pennsylvania, USA, where I live, throughout our country, and the world.


I'm a mom to two grown daughters and a wife to a man who puts up with all of the time I devote to painting.  Throughout my adult life, whether the dishes were piled high in the sink or papers needed to be graded (did I mention that I was a biology teacher for 36 years), I took time out to indulge my creative streak.



In the winter, with snow storms making frequent visits, I have perpetual sunshine in my studio (my younger daughter's former bedroom!).The reason - each spring, summer, and fall I take photos of my beauties to paint all winter long. What a wonderful way to spend a lifetime!




For this awesome blog event, I have 2 gifts, each representing a passion of mine - painting and photography.

# 1: A matted Limited Edition print of my Watercolor Painting "Red Tree Peony" 8x10:



#2: My Original Photograph "Sunset on the Beach" 8x10.


All you have to do is post here to say "Hello," tell me where you come from, and what gift you want. Be sure to leave your current email address with your comment, so that I can contact the winners.

Everyone from all over the world is welcome!

You have until February 17th to comment. Maybe you will be the one to win the gift you choose in your comment - picked by a number generator.
The Winners will be announced and I will email them, as well as post it

Good Luck!
...and thanks for visiting.
Hope to see you again soon!.

  1. Hi Barb, I come from Lecanto, Florida and just moved there from California less than a year ago. I would love that tree peony, by the way your gardens are lovely and I have been gardening for about as long as you, can no longer do much because of a bad back, but I dream, my last gardens I had a lavender farm in California.

  24. Your watercolors are stunning. I'm also an avid gardener and my hubby is equally lovely about allowing me to putter in the gardens and studio. Aren't we lucky women! I'm sure you have a zillion photos of your own to inspire you but in case you're interested, I have some Flickr sets you might find interesting - some from my home gardens and some from our visit to Monet's Garden in Giverny.
    And now I'm off to visit more of your blog. Hopefully you'll have time to stop by my blogs "for a cuppa tea" as well.

I really love your name -- rose twig. :) Anyway, I just signed up as a follower because I would love to see how your garden will look this year and also to see more of your wonderful paintings.

    Thanks for the chance to win a piece of your artwork. :)

  112. "hello!" from the snowy mountains of Montana! I don't know that I can choose between either of these pieces...I would be happy with both! (not that I expect both mind you! lol) If I had to choose today, I would pick the flower (maybe for the want of spring.) :)
    Count me in for your give-a-way, and I hope you can swing by and visit me as well.
