Thank you to everyone who participated in last week’s contest by casting their vote for their favorite painting! Click here to see the painting that received the most votes.

We’re now on to Contest #2 for this month and here are the finalists. Once again, it was difficult to decide on ten paintings to include, so I’ve taken the liberty to add two extras this time, making it a total of twelve paintings. Remember, you help decide who the winner will be by voting for your favorite painting. The painting that receives the most votes by the end of the week will receive a free download of their choice (Drawing, Value, Color or Edges) and will be entered into the final contest at the end of the month for a chance to win an entire set of instructional DVD’s which includes “Painting Outdoor Light“.

With so many great entries, it’s going to be difficult to choose your favorite, but now it’s up to you. Each of the paintings is displayed with the artist’s name, title, size and medium, along with an assigned number at the bottom. The order in which the paintings are displayed is an exact match to those that are shown in the voting box at the bottom of the blog. Once you’ve decided which painting to vote for, simply click your choice and then press the “CLICK HERE TO VOTE” button at the bottom. Only one vote per computer is allowed, so make it count! The winner will be announced next week on November 15, 2011.

There are two more weekly contests for this month. Click here to find out how to enter.

If you have already entered one of the past contests, you are also allowed to enter your work in any of the remaining contests as well.

You can now submit artwork for contest #3. The deadline for entries is Monday, November 14 by midnight EST. Just email me your JPEG images to Be sure to label the title of your email “Contest #3”.

Good Luck!
