A great Christmas gift for you to give your loved ones is a great piece of art.  Last year, Carmen Guedez did a giveaway with us, and she’s back at it again with some beautiful art.  Artwork can really brighten up a space and it’s a great conversation starter, too!  We got one of her paintings last year to review, and loved it.  They are all side wrapped canvas paintings on wooden frames and make for great conversations.  Each painting is 100% original and hand signed, so you get to officially say you are an art collector.

Carmen is an artist from North Carolina who is a full time painter.  If you’re looking for a solid piece of art, this is where to go!  Her work has been sold around the world and featured in many big galleries.  Currently she is offering 75% off original paintings (excluding sale items, cards, and prints) when you sign up for her newsletter.  You also get FREE shipping on any order.

Some of her paintings are very large (4 ft x 2 ft), so free shipping is huge!

The Giveaway:

Carmen is giving one Southern Savers reader her “Home is Where the Heart Is” painting which is 48″x24″.


100% Hand-Made Original Abstract Painting (not a print).
UV Protective varnish.
1 3/8″ painted edges (no staples on the sides).
Original signature on front and back of the artwork.
Certificate of authenticity – hand signed, embossed with the original CGUEDEZ logo and with a Fine Arts Registered Number included.
