I guess we have grown weary of the contest for the Highlights, only 3 participants. I am not sure where to promote it, I have tweeted all of you, face booked all of you too, any ideas?
Larissa is stiff competition, she is going to be hard to beat:)

I have not felt well this week, so I haven't been much help, sorry. Now off to the dentist, I woke up this morning looking like the elephant man, my whole left side of my jaw is swollen.

Oh no, Andrew, I hope it's not infected! 

I love to win, Nancy, and I want the print, but I wish I had more competition.  I do love this contest.  :( Maybe you're right and there needs to be a little break.

Get better, Andrew.

I am going to make one but will not be in the running since I just won.  I want to remind people who participate to take a few minutes to message the folks who you've chosen to put in your highlight...and maybe even encourage them to make one themselves!


Larissa, you may be right.

Oh Andrew! I do hope you are better soon, poor guy:(  I don't think it is lack of help I just think we do need a break. I know I am crazy busy it is show season.

Andrea, I am glad you mentioned messaging the folks you feature, I have done that with the ones I make and it helps.

Larissa you are a great contributor, I love your spunk!

Maybe we should make this the break point and start again in July, it is super hot and I am inside a lot more, and I try not to do shows from the end of June until September, what do you all think?

Thanks!  I've been eyeing the Flow Blue Fish Artist Print since you first listed the original painting.

PM on the way!

Got it today!

Eric loves it too; I hadn't told him I won, but he's very into fish and thought it was great.  I told him I had to get a frame, and he insisted that I get it matted too, in dark blue.  Trust me, that's a compliment.

That is a compliment! Thanks for telling me Larissa:) I know how costly matting and framing are.
Please when you get it finished take a photo? I would like to see it in dark blue.
