Good Riddance 2016 Arty Farty Giveaway!

Six years ago, a change started to happen in my work in the style and subject matter in getting away from figurative representation. Maybe you have been following along, and have seen pieces of that work exhibited here and there at galleries as well as posted online. The response to them has been pretty fantastic and I’ve sold a number of them without much fanfare. I had my first solo show of this new work and the response was pretty overwhelming. An artist friend wrote to me — and many have alluded to this — that this is will probably become my true work.

Don’t get me wrong, I love portraiture and I will always find ways to incorporate it and take on commissions. I’ve been drawing people for way too long to stop in a blink.

As a little send off to a year that can’t end soon enough, I thought I’d run a giveaway here for a framed print and a few unframed mini prints of some portraits. And stickers!



One winner will receive “Lydia” which is a framed open edition print. “Pink Waves” is an unframed limited mini print; another winner will get 3 of these to either hoard or perhaps gift to someone.  Runner-up will get a set of round stickers featuring my art. Both the original paintings have homes, but you can enter to receive all these puppies two ways:

  • Follow me over at then, share your favorite painting of mine and use #ArabellaArt.
  • You can also enter by commenting below. You can increase your chances by doing both.

Ends on Wednesday the 28th. Winners chosen using a randomizer.

Have at it and good luck!

  1. Hi there Arabella! I remember When you 1st showed your talent/gift for drawing as a child! I love your biomorphic art which comes from a place within your spirit that is unique to you alone! Your portraitures, however, will always hold a special place in my heart. Merry Christmas cousin, Ben, Ike & Tina! May the New Year be fabulous!

  2. I am a big fan of your art. I tried to copy a picture of the cat in the space helmet, but my phone wouldn’t let me.

  3. It’s still crazy to me that I was geeking out over your Flickr page in my college days and that I moved back to Cleveland and our orbits intersected. This is to say that I’m entering one of these (again)…

    This one is one of my favorites and has been a fixture in the last two apartments I’ve lived in…

  4. Thanks for the print and for doing the wonderful art that you do.

    I am excited about winning the print!
