This is the 1st week of our Painting Challenge Contest. We are very happy to present to you for your viewing pleasure the following works which were submitted this week by our Lightchasers Artists.
ATTENTION ARTISTS: PLEASE TAKE NOTICE!!!!!
DUE TO THE ONGOING CONCERNS ABOUT THE CORONAVIRUS, WE WILL BE CANCELLING OUR WEEKLY THURSDAY PAINTOUTS FOR 30 DAYS
OR UNTIL WE THINK IT IS PRUDENT TO RESUME THEM.
Since we will not be meeting every Thursday, we will be offering to you instead a WEEKLY PAINTING CHALLENGE to keep your brushes active over the interim.
1. This Challenge is for Lightchaser Members only.
2. Each week send in ONE painting. Please only submit paintings done between Monday to Sunday of that week. The deadline to submit is Sunday at 5PM! YOU ARE ON YOUR HONOR TO COMPLY WITH THIS.
3. In your email please include:
A. Type Weekly Painting Challenge in the subject line of your email
B. In the body of the email please advise the following info: Your name Title of painting Medium Size of painting Attach a photo of your unframed painting done that week. Entries without all the above info will be disqualified. C. Send the email to email@example.com.
4. The Light Chasers board will vote on the paintings and the winner will be announced the following Sunday along with that weeks new entries. Board members will recuse themselves if they submit a painting.
5. Each weeks winners of the Challenge will qualify for the final judging for several prizes that will be awarded when we resume our usual weekly Thursday paintouts.
All mediums are acceptable that we allow in our Annual Shows. (Please consult the rules for our Annual Show on our Lightchasers Website to check on Mediums allowed) Photography is not acceptable.
SAFETY TIP OF THE DAY:
If you are painting inside your home, please have proper ventilation!
Open the windows, use an exhaust fan or a free standing fan to blow the toxins away from you and out the window!
So lets not let this Corona Virus stop us from doing what we love.
