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

       Entries without all the above info will be disqualified.

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)

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.  

Lightchaser's you were emailed a Flyer last week with information about the Rosemary & Company Contest taking place this week. This is a Great chance for you to show your work in a very visible way and support one of our valuable Sponsors. Please consider entering your work in this Contest.
The rules and specifics have already been sent out to you for your information, so make the most of this opportunity to display your art to a larger viewing audience and Maybe even win a prize!!!
