Cinque Terre, Italy Painting Giveaway!

Tuesday, July 16, 2013


I am so excited and honored to get to be sharing Joanne Grant Art and her gorgeous painting today. Quite honestly, this is one of the most beautiful paintings of Italia I've ever seen -- and what's amazing is she's giving it to one of you!

She painted this in soft pastel {!!} as she recalled the vibrant colors, awnings and balconies overflowing with flowers so characteristic of Cinque Terre, Italy. It's one of our favorite places on earth. Yours too?! She's a passionate and extremely talented artist, a mother of three, and as she says -- ecstatically married to her high school sweetheart of 26 years. What absolutely incredible talent to paint such beautiful scenes and what kind generosity to give away this 11x16 print today.
Thank you, Joanne!

Someone so very lucky will get to hang this beautiful painting in their home!

  8. This is gorgeous. We went to Italy last year (you actually answered a bunch of my questions on formspring at the time) and Cinque Terre was our absolute favorite. I so wish I could be back there right now. This painting takes me back.

    Also, I didn't know if you wanted us to put our favorite paintings in her gallery in teh comments or what, but besides this one, I love Three Boats and Reflection.

  10. I haven't really been to Italy in general before! [save for an afternoon spent at the first town across the border from France] but I have been to the French riviera, and I feel like, at least in pictures, the French Mediterranean and the Italian Mediterranean coasts give off a similar vibe. :) this painting is absolutely gorgeous!

  13. We still have our Vernazza wine glasses that we brought home and still dream about that pesto lasagna that we ate EACH DAY and then literally ordered a third helping for DESSERT (I'm not even kidding).
    GREAT memories and beautiful painting!

  50. Too Funny- Two things:
    I arrived home from The Cinque Terre Saturday night and put my first post (about it) up today. LOVED IT!

    Secondly, my afternoon plan was to sit and do some watercolour paintings of our trip.

    Needless to say this contest had nice timing!
