How the pARTy Works

On a given day an image will be shared, along with the subsequent artwork painted by the pARTy hosts.

Participants are then invited to create art from the referenced image, Anything goes, but the artwork must have been started and finished within a 24 hour period.

In the fairness of allowing all an equal opportunity to participate, artists will have a window of time to complete their pARTy entry, again keeping in mind said entry must have actually been created within a 24 hour window.

NEW: pARTy submissions must be emailed to by the pARTy deadline so that they can be uploaded to the blog. You may also register for the pARTy forum and post your work there, but when doing so, please register in your own name and send us an email so that we can process your registration - otherwise we will assume it is just spam!

We regret that entries not meeting these requirements cannot be shared on the pARTy blog.

If you are posting pARTy artwork to your own website, please give credit to the individual photographer providing the photo. It would be great if you also mentioned The Virtual pARTy as well. We thank you in advance for this courtesy.

Thanks for joining us! And happy creating - Linda & Kim

August's Virtual pARTy


The next Virtual pARTy will be held August 19th through the 22nd. This window of time is to allow participants the opportunity to allocate a 24 hour period for completing a piece of art inspired by the reference photo chosen by pARTy host Linda Shantz.

Linda will be choosing something from her recent trip to Saratoga Race Course opening weekend.

New pARTy participants are encouraged to visit the pARTy forum and register prior to submitting their artwork. If you've registered for a previous pARTy, there is no need to do so a second time.

pARTy followers may also check out the pARTy forum to see who's RSVPed and their corresponding artwork.

Stay tuned. Image to come shortly!
Happy creating!


  1. This sounds fun. I am a NEWBIE painter and have been following the Daily Painters site for a few months. I hope NEW/potentially awful work is okay to submit, just for the practice of actually trying to do a painting in 24 hours? It helps develop courage......BTW, love love love Kimberly Santini's work (have yet to check out Linda's)-I too want to paint animals. The new one, "Nuzzling" is gorgeous.

  2. Hoping to be able to join the party this time around :)
