 :thankyou:  Dianne for your sweet comments about my Robin.  Bless you for that.  I am so looking forward to getting back into routine and being able to set some time aside to paint.  I am especially looking forward to the Portrait painting lessons.  Patricia

Time is winding down for the challenge!!!!! Any last minute painters still planning to post?? I'll put up the voting after midnight, PST. Which probably means it will happen in the morning.  :sleep:  I need my beauty sleep!

If members don't mind, I would like to wait to post the December Challenge Poll until we hear from Toolman on whether he would like to be included. He has not participated in the forums before, but did post his robin at 8:30 on December31st his time. Toolman, instructions for posting a photo in the format are here:
[font=.HelveticaNeueUI]http://www.paintbasket.com/members/index.php?topic=504.0[/font]
[font=.HelveticaNeueUI][/size]Or just let us know you want it included, and I can take the smg id # from your album page. [/font] :welcome:   to Paint Basket! And you have painted a wonderful robin. I'm glad you are joining the family!

Sorry for the delay folks. Have been very ill since arriving in the great white north! Guess I'm just not meant to live in these climes!
I should have the poll up and running later today, so last chance to get your submission in. Will close off this thread in 1 hr.
Hope everyone had a pleasant Christmas and New Year, all the best once again.
Cheers, Val
