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

New Year's pARTy!

Okay, so we're a little late. This week we'll be hosting the first pARTy of the New Year. I bet you all thought we'd dropped off the face of the earth!

The pARTy will run from Tuesday, January 19th, through to Saturday, January 23. Remember the idea is to complete your painting within a 24-hour period. I will try to get the photo posted tonight, so that our overseas participants can get going if they choose. At that point I'll review the 'rules' and things will be set in motion!

Hope lots of you are able to play!


  1. Wow, this has totally changed since I last visited. I'd love to play. Hope I understand all the directions. I love the pic.
