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

Heads Up! Next pARTy Coming!

Okay, let's try to keep the momentum going with another pARTy for February. This one will be run during February 16th through the 20th. I think this time around I'll be looking for a snow photo. Snow is challenging to paint, and maybe we'll get some International participants this time who might not otherwise have the chance to paint snow!

Mark your calendars! And the same 'rules' apply. I think the header, above, is up-to-date on the information. Feel free to share, too! The more the merrier!


  1. It sounds fun. I'm looking forward to it.

  2. This time I actually WROTE it on my calendar =p Looking forward to seeing the next photo!

  3. Thanks, Linda, for keeping the (snow)ball rolling!

  4. This is exciting! Now if I can just get organized LOL.
