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

Ready....Set...pARTy! March 2010

Here's your image for the March pARTy. You have from midnight tonight until midnight March 20th to get your painting to us. Remember the idea is to complete your painting in a 24-hour span of time. Complete instructions are above. Email a low-res image (72 dpi, approx. 4 x 6 inches dimensionally) of your painting to us at - if you don't get a reply acknowledging receipt, that means something went awry!

This handsome boy is Bellator, a young Warmblood gelding that lives at Inish'Or Farm in Puslinch, Ontario. Please remember to give credit to the photographer - in this case, Linda Shantz.

PS - if you'd like a high-res file from which to work, just send a request to the address above.
