and the winner is...

Before I announce the winner, I want to thank everyone who entered my contest. I really had such fun reading all of your plant and flower suggestions and thinking about just how I would go about painting them. I will probably spend some time playing around with the plants in my sketchbook and maybe painting them, too. Thinking of all these flowers certainly made me that much more impatient for spring (not that I need much encouragement in that regard!).

In the past I've had some very silly methods of choosing a winner for my giveaways. Today I went for simple. I wrote each person's name and flower on a slip of paper and put it in a little bucket (those who got extra chances had one slip for each chance). This morning I enlisted Matthias' help.
