Smitten Photo Contest - you could win a custom painting!

'Magnetic'  part of my Smitten series
6 x 6 in gouache on paper - SOLD
Happy New Year everyone! I hope all your resolutions and wishes for this year come true. :)
Now, down to business, I'm hosting a challenge over on my facebook page that gives you the chance to win an 8" x 10" watercolor painting based on your photo. I'm looking for photos that represent love, along the lines of my 'Smitten' series of paintings. It can be love in all its forms, young or old, people or animals, your interpretation. But please no nudity, I'm keeping this family friendly. 
So what you do is click here (you can also just click on the banner at the top of my blog) to go to the contest and submit your photo before January 23. Voting begins on January 24, which is your chance to get all your friends to come vote for your photo, and the photo with the most votes wins the painting. Pretty simple. :)
I'd love to see all your photos about love! I think this will be a lot of fun.    
You'll probably be very sick of hearing from me this month because I'm joining in with Leslie Saeta and about a million other people to do the thirty paintings in thirty days (because I'm crazy like that). Gulp. Ambitious I know, and probably not doable for me, but what the heck right? Right.
Until tomorrow then. Thanks friends. :)


  1. this is incredible crystal! the composition is wonderful and your faces are always, always outstanding. so inspirational! and i'm really looking forward to seeing 30 new pieces in 30 days! bravo!

    happy new year my friend and thank you for your kindness and support.

  2. Impresionante trabajo!

    Feliz 2013.

    Un saludo.

  3. I would so love to have done the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge - but since I'm back to work four days a week on the 7th, I'm having to settle for the 75 day sketch challenge instead, which I started on the 1st. Oh well, at least it's something!
    I entered the contest :0D
    A photo of myself giving my little boy a huge smackeroony kiss when he was still so little. There is no greater love than between a Mother and child is there? Poor lamb - he looks like he's being swallowed whole! Lol! ;0)

  4. Good luck on your challenge, Crystal...sounds wonderful! I look forward to seeing them..

  5. What a great idea! Hmm. I have to start hunting for photos ; ) I really look forward to seeing your 30 in 30! Happy New Years : )
    p.s. I love "Magnetic". So powerful!

  6. 30 in 30? Wow, you are my hero! Can't wait to see all your paintings. Love "Magnetic" it's so beautiful! Hmmm...may have to send you a photo (and cross my fingers like crazy)!


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment they really do mean so much to me! Because not all bloggers have their email enabled so I can reply directly through email I will try to reply here in the comments. If I don't please forgive me, life must have been hectic that day! :)) Huzzah!!
