Thank you to everyone who participated in last week’s contest by casting their vote for their favorite painting! I’ll be posting the winner of contest #2 later today.

Well, here we are, already on to contest # 3, with only one more art contest remaining. A special thanks to everyone who submitted their work for consideration. Since I haven’t been able to pick only ten finalists for the past two contests, I decided to continue the tradition by posting one extra this week, making it a total of eleven paintings. Remember, it’s now up to you to 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“. I will also feature the winning painting on my Facebook page as well as my blog.

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 Tuesday, November 22, 2011.

Remember, it’s all about the votes, so be creative in getting others to vote for your favorite painting!

There is only one more weekly contest left for this month, so if you were thinking about entering, now is your last chance to decide. 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 the final contest as well.

You can now submit artwork for contest #4. The deadline for entries is Monday, November 21 by midnight EST. Just email me your JPEG images to BPortrait@aol.com. Be sure to label the title of your email “Contest # 4” and include the title, dimensions, and medium of the painting.

Good Luck!
