You may remember that last year I was very fortunate to place the winning bid on Flora Bowley’s painting from our class with her at the Do What You Love retreat.
If you already know about Flora you may also know that Papaya! produce various products using her paintings; they wanted to use the aforementioned painting, entitled ‘Release and Grow’, so I’ve been busy getting it reproduced in digital format.
As part of the service, the printers I went to created a GORGEOUS 30.5 x 30.5cm photographic print of the painting. The colours are exquisitely replicated and it will look amazing in a frame. Now obviously since I have the original, it’s only right that someone else should own this print.
And thus I am doing a giveaway of the print! Hooray!
It really is a beauty.
If you fancy your chances, just tweet/blog/FB or otherwise spread the word and then leave a comment here to let me know you’ve done so.
I wouldn’t normally be so strict but as well as seeking a new home for this print I am also spreading the word for Flora about her second online class, starting on September 10th. So please mention that too ~ she would be most grateful!
Plenty of time to sign up if you’d like to treat yourself to what will undoubtedly be one of the most creatively rewarding things you’ll ever do. As someone who has been fortunate enough to be taught by Flora in person I can unreservedly guarantee that you would LOVE her online class. You only have to have a quick read through of the page about it to see how much work has gone into it, and how beautifully put together it is. The content is certainly the most packed I’ve seen, and Flora’s teaching style and philosophy are accessible and inspiring.
So. If you’d like to win the print, which will be carefully packaged and sent to you wherever you are in the world, please do spread the word and let me know.
Edit: It might help if I gave a deadline, right?! Deadline for entries is Tuesday 28th August at 12pm.
Hi Tara ,
Well, I have to throw my hat in the ring for this giveaway ! And give a vote of recommendation for the online course too – I did a previous round which was a perfect top up after the workshop in person.
Hope all is well with you , Rhiannon x
i’m already signed up for her class and VERY excited about it…..a dear friend of mine did a retreat AND took her online class afterward — so delighted was she with what she’d learned and experienced in person. so on her recommendation, i treated myself…;)
gorgeous print, i must say…
I love your generosity — not only in offering the print to someone else, but in spreading the word about Flora’s class!
I shared this post on my Facebook page and linked you to it on your Facebook page.
This is absolutely beautiful! I’ve also participated in one of Flora’s retreats (they’re more than just a workshop right?!) and recommend it to anyone who desires to pursue and grow their own gifts… A beautiful and generous giveaway – thanks Tara!

Shared it on Facebook! Thanks for sharing her work in this way, took flora’s class in June and it truly changed my entire world. Am taking the September course also, as I have come to think of it as nourishment for the artist in me. Would lovelovelove to hang your print in my studio, congratulations on your good fortune of owning the original- I imagine it is quite inspiring in every way 🙂
Ooooh. I would love love to have a print of that particular painting, given as I also watched it grow!! Xxx am happy to spread the word. May even do the online course myself.
Posted on my fb page/timeline. Took the last Flora online class and got inspired to paint again. Would love to win this print!
I retweeted Flora’s tweet about this giveaway!!! I would LOVE to win this print!! :o)
I would love to win a print of Floras painting…how exciting that would be……please let me win….pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. I am very proud and honoured to share any link which helps support Floras work, she is amazing and I am her biggest fan from England! What I love about Floras is her approach to painting, over the last few months I have learnt a great deal from her, I am much more relaxed when I paint now, as there are no mistakes! Floras has given me more confidence in my ability to paint and create……so thank you Flora for your generosity in giving away all your secrets.
I’m registered for the online September class and can’t wait!
I shared this on facebook. Would be awesome to win
Spread the word on blog and to all who will listen. I am new to painting and I think I have gone to heaven…. on earth. Flora’s work looks amazing and I have just the perfect spot for it. I can hardly wait to see it in person some day soon I hope. I live close to Portland and hope to see some of her work at a local gallery. I just bought her book and am working my way through it. She is amazing and great that you are spreading the word as well.
I hope to some day have an in person class with her
How wonderful! I just posted to my biz FB page. So sweet of you to offer such a wonderful give-away.
Just facebooked the opportunity! What a great piece-brilliant!
I am not on facebook due to getting 2 viruses and it costing a LOT of money to get rid of them. But I would love to comment here. I took Flora’s e-course in the spring and am back for a second time. It was soooooo freeing and educational. I am passing on the freeing advice to my daugther who has gone back to art school to be a teacher. Flora’s life advice is amazing and well worth breathing in as an everyday breath. I would l ove to take a class from her in person. Many of you have been very blessed or blessed well by Flora. Lucky will be the person that wins your print. It is a very generous gift to someone from you and Flora.
I’d love to win this! I’ve just posted about it on Facebook! Thanks for a chance to enter & win~
beautiful print! I spread the word on twitter @creativestash – thanks so much for the opportunity to win!
I would love to get Floras print, love her art. One day Im hoping to take her class. Ill shere where ever I can. Hawe a beautiful life..
OK, I’m sharing on Facebook. Would be fantastic to win this. I’m a Flora Fan Forever. Loved her online course.
I posted on Facebook, however I already had before this giveaway came along. I so enjoyed the ecourse. All though I wasn’t there when she painted it I would love to hang this in my home. I haven’t taken from her in person, however I did meet her and listened to her talk about her book which I also have. She is very inspiring. So glad I did this.
I posted this on FACEBOOK on my art page. I’m a HUGE FAN of her work and would LOVE to have a print of this! Beautiful!
I would love an opportunity for a print. I think I missed the dead line though. Just in case.
Technically speaking you did Kay, but if I end up doing a redraw (tomorrow 12pm UK time), I’m more than happy to include you. 🙂
