And, as promised, we have a giveaway today.  Joe did an extra painting this week.  This original is for our home, but we have prints available in Joe's etsy shop, and we're giving away one print to a randomly chosen reader who leaves a comment (or comments) below.

"In Due Time" by Joe Swanson
print available here.

To enter the giveaway, leave a comment.  Let us know what you think of the project, your favorite painting so far.  For extra chances to win, please mention us on your blog, on facebook, myspace, twitter, etc.  Leave a separate comment letting us know where you spread the word for us (one comment about the project or a fave painting, separate comment if you do a shout out on Facebook, separate if you tweet about the project, etc.).  The more you help us spread the word, the more chances you have to win.  

We were doing well the first few days of this project, but it seems we're losing steam, so we need your help!  I'll configure a new ticker later to help you see the progression of the projects success.

Winner randomly chosen (and announced) on Monday morning.  Spread the word!  (thanks!)


  1. I have really enjoyed the paintings I have seen so far. I am looking forward to seeing more. You can count on my support of the "Retrieval Project" whether I purchase a painting or not.

    Peace and Blessings in Christ Jesus,

  2. I really enjoy visiting your site. I went to purchase a painting, but it sold! You'll have to ask Sarah the significance of Aug 6 for her friend Katie. Your theme left me dumbfounded and then touched. Your art blessed me. I will be ordering an original, and a print (when it's released), for sure.

  3. Okay... so you're on "Myspace", "Facebook", & "Twitter". I will do what I can to keep it going. Hope it helps. Much love...

  4. Keep up the great work! I am hoping to have enough money by payday so I can snag one of your beautiful works of art. :)

  5. Joe and Jenny~ I am loving seeing the beautiful art you are both producing. Jenny- I find your art to be very inspirational and calm and centering. Joe I think your stuff is awesome and I would love to pick lil parts from certain ones and make a beautiful tattoo with them! =)

  6. I love this idea... as soon as I have time I'll be promoting you on my blog! Count me in for the giveaway and I'd love to know how much you've made toward your goal... Have a magical weekend!

  7. I'm so extremely proud and excited for you guys. This is really going great for you and I hope that God multiplies it exponentially!!

    Blessings to the Swanson Fam!

  8. I love your project! I look forward to seeing it every day and will definitely be buying one (or two) in the next week or two. (As soon as we can!) My favorite so far has been Jenny's "Change". Love that one! (Tho I have truly loved them all!) It's so cool to see your two different styles and takes on each word!


We appreciate your feedback!
