  3. Love ArtPrize. I was just about to write a post about it as well. Anyone can enter and it's better every year (well, this is only the second year, so...).

  4. Those are amazing...what amazes me is not so much the content, but how patient each artist has to be with their pieces...how long must each spent on them? Months and months and maybe years. I could NEVER do that part of it! I can hardly wait for the paint to dry in a room before I get impatient seeing the finsihed result!
    And thanks for your nice comment today...it made me laugh out loud.
