Kim said...

I love beautiful art and these are absolutely BEAUTIFUL. They each potray something we will each need some time in our lives at one time or another. I don't know which one I would choose because they are all so wonderful, but security and a "Hug" from my Savior is always at the top of my list.

What a GREAT giveaway!! The pictures are GORGEOUS!!

karis stapley said...

When I think of David, I still think of the fun side of seeing him dance with his wife at a church adult dinner party and how we enjoyed talking with them, and now its so neat to see this amazingly talented side. He truly is an amazing artist in really capturing the feelings and emotions on Christ's and the childrens faces. My favorite is def. "My Child", because I think a diff. times in our lives, we may feel like wanting to "go home", but that picture is a good reminder that he can be and is here with us on earth.

Emma said...

This is such an awesome giveaway. I am in awe of David Bowman's work and absolutely love his piece entitled "My Child."

Thanks so much to David and Shauna for the chance to win. :o)

Becca Watson said...

What a great giveaway! Those pictures are wonderful!

Lilly's Life said...

How wonderful and how generous of both you and David to do this.

I really like the fact that the three pieces of art featured focus on children. If only we could protect all the innocent children in the world and shower them with lots of love and a greater sense of security in these troubled times. This artwork is inspirational and a very strong reminder that God loves us all and we are all his children. We need to do God's work for him and look after each other particularly the little children and elderly.

Happy New Year everyone and thanks again for sharing David's artwork with us.

-Melissa- said...

Wow! What a great giveaway. I love the Security picture. They are all beautiful.

Amy said...

And to David...WOW, amazing work. Truly a great talent that you have. Thanks for sharing it with others.
And I'll be shouting you out on my blog! I've got to babysit soon, but I will get it done!
THANK YOU BOTH!

KC Mom said...

No Way!!! I've always loved "My Child". It reminds me of how the Savior feels about my three girls. I was struck the other day that I was raising children of God...and that print shows it perfectly. Also, with the recent death of my daughter's best friend Megan, I love the tenderness of the Savior embracing the girl. I feel like Megan has really worked to comfort her family and friends and that comfort comes from the Lord.
Thanks for sharing Shauna.

Amy said...

I love his artwork!

wonder woman said...

Those are beautiful pictures. I love that first one -- reminds me of what my boys do to me everyday.

Did he draw "Even Superman has a dad?" It looks like a similar style, but the "Who's your hero?" made me wonder.

WOW What an AWESOME giveaway! I LOVE all of his portraits! They are STUNNING! David is an incredibly talented artist! I LOVE how they all show Christ's loving personality! They are all BEAUTIFUL!! I think one of my faves is "Innocence" because you see that he's not just our *Savior* but he loves each of us especially children & enjoys being around them. I Love the playful feel of that portrait! Just reminds me of being with my own kids.

Thanks for the chance to win!

KC Mom said...

Double checking that my comment got on here earlier and to say, I blogged about it too! It's so hard for me...I really would love to have a print for myself but I also know how much it would mean to someone else.

What a wonderful idea! I just love it when I see Christ with his children. It reminds me that he is with us at all times and that we all need to remember that we are all like the little children. These prints are amazing, David is so talented.

Rhonda said...

That is so great of you and David to do this!!! The more pictures we have of our Savior on our walls, helps us to remember Him and what we should be doing. david's pictures are outstanding!!

Wishing you a Happy New Year!!!

Love them all!!!
Thank you Shauna for such a great opportunity...
Merry Day Hugs to you~ Les

Sher said...

They are beautiful pictures. Do you know him? Do you think he does custom portraits? When my uncle passed away suddenly, a couple of years ago, my grandma had an artist (I don't know who) draw a picture of him and the Savior. It was touching and beautiful.
Anyway, thanks!

Untypically Jia said...

I'm a sucker for printed art and these are just beautiful! Consider me entered!

Doré said...

What a generous giveaway Shauna! Thank you so much!

nikkicrumpet said...

Wow Shauna what a wonderfully generous giveaway! How can you not love his art. He depicts Jesus in the way I've always believed him to be. A kind, loving, gentle man. And I love the one where he's smiling. It's an expression used so seldom in pictures of Christ...and I'm sure he smiled a lot! Thanks for the chance to win one of these amazing pieces of art!

devri said...

I am in, they are gorgeous.. Happy New year Woman. I will shout you out if I can tonight.. Computer goes down in the morning till we move and get it set back up next week.

Shandi said...

Happy New Year, Shauna!!! I finally figured out how to get to your blog. As I was reading it I saw that you were having this giveaway. You are so sweet to do stuff like this. I LOVE the one of the little boy touching Jesus' nose. I can totally see my little man doing that. He's 14 mos. old & does that to all of our family & friends. Hope you & your family have an amazing New Year with lots of wonderful blessings. Please enter me into your drawing for David's art work. Thanks hun.

Heidi Ashworth said...

Are you serious?? That is awesome, not to mention thoughtful of both you and the artist! I love all 3 of them! I could no sooner choose a favorite than choose where to go on vacation! Does he have others, and where could I find them?

Kim@ForeverWherever said...

I like all of them...very nice!
Thanks for sharing this with us!

Jodi said...

I love these prints. I don't know that I've ever heard of David Bowman. I'm sure I've seen his work, but mainly just recognized Greg Olsen's work like this. Man. It's beautiful. All Three of them. I hope I win -- security. It reminds me of my daughter. Thanks Shauna and David! Thanks for the opportunity :)

soawesomeimightgetarrested said...

thanks for always leaving a little love wherever you go Shauna:)

Jodi said...

Thanks again Shauna and David! I posted this on my blog as well!

The Haley Family said...

Those are beautiful prints! My favorites are the black and white. The emotion is so strong when I look at those! I have 3 boys, so the boy print is precious. But...also have a little girl-my baby-so the other print will be so fitting as she grows up! Thanks for the opportunity!

Cory CL said...

Being an art collector, I love to find new artists that can really evoke emotion out of their work. I hope that David continues to be inspired and continues to paint with his heart...and not what publishers demand of most artists these days. I hope to see more of David's work in the future, especially if one of them landed in my home ;)

susette said...

You are such an amazing woman. Thanks for sharing your love and hard work with so many of us. David's art is beautiful and I hope he sells a million prints. He deserves to :) He's a natural!!

Bo said...

Good morning Shauna...This is the sweetest giveaway from you and Mr. David Bowman! What Christian home wouldn't be enhanced with any one of these beautiful works of art...
My favorite, though it is a difficult choice, is "Innocence" because of Jesus depicted as smiling. Love it! ;-) Bo

Keeley said...

Wow, breath taking! Those gave me the chills-

Theresa said...

Oh, I hope it's not too late to try to win.

Happy New Year, I pray that your year is filled with love and peace.

Paula (SweetPea) said...

Enter me.

Happy New Year!

Her Royal Highness said...

Those pictures are absolutely priceless and gorgeous! I don't even know which one is my "favorite". I think if I had to choose, though, I'd choose 'Innocence' because there are so many pictures of the Savior looking serious and not enough of Him smiling. I like to think of Him laughing with little kids.

Julie said...

happy new year and pick me

Jan said...

These are incredibly beautiful and touching. How I would love to have one of these!!

Thanks to you and to David for the generosity!

MindyLew said...

Rachel Ann said...

lindsay>boo said...

I saw this on a friend's blog. I would love to win one of those beautiful prints.

Kristin said...

I LOVE the security print. It is very calming and just what I think it would be like to be with Jesus.

Anya said...

May the new year bring you strength,
health and comfort too
Even joy and happiness,
that's what I wish for you

May the new year bless you
with peace from the start
May it fulfil your expectations
bringing silence in your heart

Jill said...

What a great giveaway! Thanks! I posted about your blog and these pics on my blog! I look forward to seeing who your winners are!

Nora Morgan said...

Thank you for commenting on my blog and inviting me on over here. These prints are amazing. I love the first one especially. The smile lines around Jesus' eyes are a more accurate portrayal of His character than the "always-so-serious" pics we see. I believe He is a happy man, and only solemn when the occasion arises.

Heather said...

There is so much emotion in the faces. LOVE IT.

Vanessa said...

Tammy sent me!

Thanks for your nice comments on my blog!

karen said...

Great giveaway, and an awesome start to 2009! My favorite is the one titled "My Child." So sweet! Thanks for visiting my blog, and making me aware of yours. I don't know how you found mine (I'm kind of new at this) but I'm glad you did! Happy new year!

Lisa Loo said...

I found this oppurtunity on Carla's blog. I had honestly never heard of David Bowman but after going to his website--I am enchanted! I have always wanted to come check your blog out--you seem to comment on alot of the blogs I do--I love your blog name and the Tigger pictures. I will have to come and lurk and stalk some more! Thanx for doing the giveaway. I LOVE "My Child"!

Lisa Loo said...

I'm sorry--I got so excited I didn't read completely through the post. I usually have to really look at a picture for quite awhile before I can discover what exactly I love or feel about it. With "My Child" I was just completely overwhelmed by an immediate feeling of tenderness followed by a rush of tears. I am rarely blinsided like that---what beautiful, beautiful work!!

Katie Hatch said...

I'm Karen Norman's daughter! Found your comment on her blog and thought I'd check out the giveaway. I hope I win!

What beautiful art and what a wonderful opportunity you are offering to some lucky person. Thank you for posting his website as I would never have know he existed.

I came across you blog by following a couple of others. I can't even tell you the path I took to get here. I believe it was a "planned" action from above for the feeling of peace that I needed.

The Garden Maiden said...

I usually don't enter these, but it is a new year and so why not!

His art in inspiring. I love love the second one with the little girl burying her face in the Saviors shoulder. I think I have buried my face there a time or two.

natalia said...

Ciao Shauna I wish you a very special new year !!

The Pejsa Family said...

So generous!! Beautiful artwork!

Kritta22 said...

I love Security!! What a great giveaway!!!

Kristal said...

Very nice! I love the "Security" piece. What I love about all three is that he portrays teh Savior as a person, not a picture like most artists do (looking blankly into the distance with hand(s) out)

Valerie said...

Thank you for choosing such wonderful gifts for the giveaway!

Misty said...

Absolutely beautiful!
