Thank you to a couple of people who asked about following me. I had never thought about it before, but I would really like you all to follow me. I now have a button, so it is easy to do. Just scoot on over to the right hand side of my page, find the "Followers" section, and click the little button and you'll get notified when I have a new posting and other exciting things. I am planning on giving away a painting when I get to a certain number of followers. Let's start at 50... when I get 50 followers I will write a post to let you know that the contest has started. At that point, comment on any post you desire and I will randomly choose a winner to receive a painting. So, let's get started!!

I did a lot of the challenges on the Different Strokes From Different Folks blog over the past year and a half-ish. Until further notice, that blog is being dissolved and others are popping up to satisfy our artistic desires. I participated in the portrait exchange challenge both years. This year, as a thank you to the blog coordinator (Karin Jurick), several of us participated in a special challenge for Karin. 118 of the 180 artists who did the portrait challenge painted or drew or otherwise created a work of art using Karin's photo. Jill Polsby compiled them all into a very nice book, which was then sent to Karin. Well, this has been a couple of month- long process and was kept a surprise for all this time. The time has finally come, though, that we can reveal our paintings! Go here to see all of the submissions.
