Michael and I have a goal of bringing more art into our home over the next couple of years. I've mentioned before how it can be a little daunting to know where to start looking for artists. But have you ever been searching, and then all at once an artist's collection or piece of art just sings to you? Your heart is doing backflips and your mind is racing? That happens to me a lot in museums, where I feel a connection with an artist, but it's (obviously!) harder to find that in the art market in a real and affordable way.

I'm so, so thrilled to share today's (HUGE) give away from acclaimed artist and philanthropist, Jessie Mackay, and artist who makes my heart sing. Her work has been praised by NYT art critics and hangs in celebrity homes (check out her paintings in James Carville and Mary Matalin's home featured in Architectural Digest). Here are a few of my favorites currently available on Jessie's site.

Today she is generously offering up this 24x30 gallery-wrapped abstract painting called 'Soft Thoughts.'

Here are some close ups of this lovely painting, just sitting in my loft, waiting to be shipped to your home!

I love the bits of bright, almost neon paint peeking through the soft grays and creams.

Lucky you, there are a couple of ways to enter your name into the pot.  
1) Simply leave a comment on this post sharing where you would hang 'Soft Thoughts' in your home. 2) Like Jessie Mackay Art on Facebook and leave a comment on this post saying so.

The winner will be chosen at random from the comments here on July 25 at midnight. Good luck!
