Clara Nilles Canvas Print Giveaway!


You are going to be amazed at this artist and her beautiful work.  Clara is an animal artist from Maryland with so much talent.  This is straight from her bio on her website:

"Art is my passion.

Primarily self taught, I have been drawing and painting since I can remember.   After a long career in finance, I finally decided to pursue my biggest dream . . . . of becoming an artist.   My long-standing medium of choice has been acrylic and pastels, because of their extensive layering capabilities and intense vivid colors. 

Most of my paintings employ many layers in brilliant pure color.  I believe color is the universal language that brings a positive energy to people and communicates strong emotions and mood.   I also think that animals bring out the goodness and feelings of being with the earth.   It’s a combination that has timeless appeal for children and adults alike.

In my paintings, I strive to capture the engaging look or the lively spirit of the animal......something that we often overlook.   I make a conscious effort to create paintings with their own voice, emotion, and mood.   My paintings are frequently imaginative, slightly whimsical, but mostly fun.  I want people to feel positive, charmed, and connected, when viewing my works. "


She definitely does all of that in her work as you can see for yourselves:

 Jelly Bean Giraffes on Pineapple (8.25 x 10.5)

 Leopard Lovers on Lime (12 x 12)

Polar Bear Blush on Slate (12 x 12)

Clara has generously offered one of the three giclee prints pictured here to one lucky winner.  They are printed on high quality canvas and she will sign it herself.  How awesome is that?!

I was thinking about my father's bathhouse when I was looking through the pictures. And the one with the buffaloes would look SO good on that wall and in that environment! :)
