"Take me out to the Ballgame" Giveaway

This is Slugger. If you couldn't tell already, he's crazy about baseball.

Hey Y'all! It's time for another Friday giveaway. This Fridays giveaway is "Take me out to the Ballgame". The painting is of Slugger the octopus. He just loves baseball. On any given day you can find him out in the local ocean sand lot playing a game of ball with Luis the crab, Marty lobster, Sid squid, and a couple of the local clams. On Saturdays however, his dad loves to take him and his brothers to watch the Marlins play a game of ball. He's all ready for the game. With his baseball bat, pennant's, popcorn & soda, he's sure to enjoy the game. Slugger even remembered to bring his trading cards. I think he hopes to get a few autographs this time. Good luck Slugger!

All you have to do to win this original painting is to leave a comment. If you link back to this post on your blog, you will have your name added 5 more times to the drawing (that's a total of 6 chances to win Slugger). You can link back to this post by pressing the "Links to this post" and then press "Create a link". I am sure there is an easier way of doing this, but I am just learning how to do this link business. The winner will be chosen by one of my munchkins Monday August 11, 2008 at 4pm. My girls are having just as much fun with the giveaways as I am. They love to pick the winners. 

"Take me out to the Ballgame" measures 9"x10". This is hand painted by me! I used a medium thick watercolor paper and watercolors with some acrylic. A frame will not be included in this giveaway unless I can find one that I think looks cute. Look forward to seeing Slugger and you at the big game on Monday. Oh, I almost forgot, I'll bring the Crackerjacks!

he is so cute! maybe you can put baseball bats in all off his arms and send him out to find the little punks who messed with our cars!! hehe.

Artfulife said...

Sarah, you are too funny. Last night some punk kids went through our neighborhood and vandalized cars, trucks and tagged a bunch of property. Very sad. They threw a big rock at my new car and took a key and scratched Tony's truck. What a shame.

Christina Joy said...
