Updated: Congratulations to Liz who won our fabulous giveaway! A big fat thanks to all of you awesome people who entered, and to the wonderful Amanda M. Roberson Fine Art for her generous giveaway! Be sure to keep them in mind for great keepsake gifts and one of a kind art. ;}


Hey you guys! We’re excited to share this super wonderful product with all of you super wonderful people. Amanda M. Roberson Fine Art is here today with her beautiful designs. And they are adorably swoon worthy.

Amanda Roberson Fine Art provides custom art, from sweet sketches to lovely paintings, and if you live near the Montgomery area, she is now offering studio classes. {What a fun gal’s night!} Her style is best described from her website:

As an artist, I strive to find the beauty of God’s creation in everyday things. My goal is to create works that are simple, timeless, unique and affordable. Heavily influenced by the French Impressionistic style (Monet, Cassett, Renoir, among others) I use heavy brush strokes to incorporate color, light and movement into forms that are as simple as every day and as complex as the world around us.

Here’s just a small sampling of her beautiful work from photographs clients sent in:

Isn’t it beautiful? You can order a piece of one of a kind art for your home, and even have them printed on  sweet cards like these. Christmas cards…stationery…personal cards…the posibilities really are endless! They’re the perfect gift to anyone, especially yourself!

Here’s what Amanda is generously giving away to our Handmade Home readers today:

One 8 x 10 sketch from the winner’s choice of photograph that they send in. That’s custom art for you…a one of a kind piece. The sketch comes matted and backed to a finished size of 11 x 14. In addition to that, this wonderful sketch will also come on a small pack of cards, from one of the choices shown above.

Want to win? Here’s what you need to do:

1. Visit her site, and leave a comment here telling us your favorite piece or product from her awesome creations.

2. Join AMR Art’s Facebook page and leave a comment here, telling us you did.

  140. Amy Brown says:

    I have several favorites of Amanda’s but one that especially hits home was a painting of an angel that she had at a Holiday Market a few years back. Something about that piece spoke to me so I bought it. Not even a week later a cousin of mine passed away and the more I looked at it the more I knew I needed to give it to his wife so she would have an earthly angel to remind her that her husband was in the arms of the Heavenly angels. I was so happy to pass on Amanda’s blessing of artistry. Art, like music, does so much to one’s soul. It soothes, inspires, entertains, welcomes, documents, brings forth happiness…

    I was already a fan of Amanda’s page and happily shared the giveaway via facebook. :)
