PAINTER'S IN MODERN TIMES NEWSLETTER - 27TH NOVEMBER 2008

PAINTERS IN MODERN TIMES – WHAT’S NEW

27th of November 2008

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

News Just to Hand

Some of you may have noticed that when voting in challenges that the vote tally no longer exists. Redbubble Admin felt that this function enabled cheating in challenges and have therefore removed it. Personally I don’t believe this occurs in PiMT due to the fact that no member has ever won a challenge more than once and as the mature intelligent painter’s we all are we know that in the end cheating is only cheating yourself.

Hopefully many of you will not miss this feature in voting and we are still waiting to find out if personal vote tallies will come back. As soon as I find out any news I will let you know.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Also I love to brag about our members achievements and as it turns out I can again this week!

Denise Martin entered a challenge in the Australian Artist Magazine entitled ‘Flowers and Gardens’. Her entry became a finalist and was published in the September edition of the Magazine!! Way to go!! Congratulations

The painting that became the finalist is Waratahs

Current Challenges

VOTING HAS OPENED FOR:


The Road Ahead

You can now vote for as many entries as you like and now go back to vote for an entry you may have overlooked.

NOW OPEN…

Flowers

Holiday Season Celebration

This one is especially for the buyers of greeting cards and will be a really quick one. The idea is to showcase images that would be perfect for greeting cards for the upcoming holiday season. Just think quality cards with quality hand painted artworks for people to purchase for their loved ones!!!
As the main aim is to supply a ‘shopfront to customers’ this exercise will be purely for participation and hopefully sales! The regular featured artist spot does not apply here.
PLEASE ENSURE YOUR IMAGE IS AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE AS A CARD TO AVOID ITS REMOVAL

It’s in the Eyes

COMING SOON

*Cubism

AND DON"T FORGET…..

Redbubbles for Christmas

OH NO!!! JUST 3 DAYS!!!
