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 thevirtualparty77@yahoo.ca 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

Derby Week pARTy


Lise Leblanc "Lucky 7" 9 x 12 oil on canvas

Okay, so our reference photo by Kim Santini was taken last summer at Saratoga, but this is Derby Week, so a racing theme is appropriate. In fact I believe Kim will be doing a horse instead of a dog-a-day to celebrate this week. Add to that the final week of my April Thirty Horses, Thirty Days, and there will be lots of daily ponies around! And that, my friends, is what we call shameless self-promotion by your pARTy hosts! :-D

We had another great turnout for our pARTy, having a go at a fairly challenging image.
