I so much enjoyed reading all the comment entries in the India painting giveaway contest! I love getting comments to hear how you’re inspired, and stories of your travels and keeping your memories alive through remembrances like the little India paintings. Please please keep leaving your thoughts and ideas here even on non-giveaway posts — it’s fun to read them and makes sharing things with you here more rewarding!
I really wish I had brought many more paintings home so everyone could have one! But a winner must be chosen, so I asked Random Generator for impartial help.

Congratulations!! Also check out her website of India-inspired products — beautiful! Salma said in her comment she liked the dark elephant:
Salma, please email me at india.pied.a.terre (at) gmail.com with your address, and I will mail the painting to you. Thank you to everyone who participated. This is much more fun than keeping things for myself! So I plan to definitely do more giveaways in the future. I blog our inspiration for the India apartment and our Chicago home here publicly because I like to share and inspire other people. I’m certain on my next trip to India, I’ll be looking for giveaways for others, as much as personal souvenirs!
