I seem to be giving away more art than I am selling lately, BUT…I’m doing another contest! The theme this time is horse shows and hunter/jumper/equitation with the very specific goal of finding a subject to paint and enter in the poster contest for the Washington International Horse Show.
The subject is very near and dear to my heart.
So, horsey folks – what I’m looking for are photos of horse show scenes that really speak to you as a competitor. Jumps? The little lead-liners? Picking up your ribbon? Leaving the ring? Braiding?
To enter, post your photo(s) to my Facebook page before June 19, 2011. My only request is that they not be professional photos that you don’t own the copyright to. I will be using the chosen photo as a reference for my painting.
If I pick your photo to paint, you will win a custom 8×10 portrait of your horse. If my painting wins the contest, you’ll get bragging rights, a poster or two and I’ll share some of the SWAG with you as well. The original artwork would be for sale at the Washington International Horse Show in October.
