Merry Christmas! It's hard to believe today is the last day of the Twelve Days of Christmas giveaway. This has been a lot of fun and thank you to the hundreds of you that have participated in the fun.
I can't tell you how much I enjoyed all of your suggestions for themes for the Thirty Paintings in Thirty Days Challenge! I do think having a theme for the Challenge helps a lot as it keeps you focused and makes it a lot easier to come up with things to paint every day!
The winner of the 11th Day Giveaway is Kathy Dugan Collins. Kathy is the winner of one of my hand painted canvas bags. There aren't many of these out there so I hope you will enjoy it! Send me your address and I will mail it to you.
The 12th Day giveaway prize is one of my original oil paintings.
It is featured here and it is a 12" x 12" oil painting. I will ship it to the winner right away. If you would like to have a chance to win the painting, my request is simple. I am a true believer that as artists we all need to think about giving back. We need to do everything we can to help our fellow artists. That's why my radio show is named "Artists Helping Artists".
I am looking for suggestions as to how we can all help our fellow artists. So to be eligible for the final giveaway leave your suggestions here. What do you think is a great way to help a fellow artist? Share your ideas on my blog or on any of my facebook pages. And you are welcome to make as many suggestions as you want if you would like to increase your chances to win. The winner will be announced tomorrow morning.
I have a lot of great workshops scheduled in 2016. I will be teaching in Cape Cod, Richmond, Atlanta, South Pasadena and Ventura. Click here for more information! I am also offering Online Studio painting classes every month. Join me each month as we paint traditional oil paintings and abstract paintings with a palette knife. Click here to sign up.
