March 'Win an original painting!' competition

It's the 1st of March so it's time to begin the second monthly competition to win one of my original paintings. This month I am offering a snowy painting.

Too cold to rest
Artist quality watercolour on watercolour paper
11.7" x 8.3"

This painting was included in a previous post and was so well received that I thought someone would like the opportunity to win it.

In addition five other lucky people will win one of five signed limited edition prints of the painting.

This time, there are only a couple of things you need to do to qualify:

1. Subscribe to my email posts.
2. Comment on this posting, mentioning your intention to enter the competition.
******Also please tell me your subscription email address (you may email it to me if you don't want it to appear in the comments), but no need to do this if you entered the February competition.******


......and that's it!

This is a great opportunity to own an original artwork.

Please note:
One entry per person
The painting and prints will be unframed and unmounted.
The prints of the artwork will be printed on A4 paper and will have a small white border on all edges.

The competition will run from the first of the month to the last day of the month.
The winner and runner-up prizes will be determined by a draw from all qualifying names and will be announced during the first week of April.

Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any inquiries about the competition and Good Luck!!

**The results of February's competition will be announced on Tuesday 3rd March**

Count me in! This is lovely John. I love the angel of the setting and whenever I look at it I wonder what I would be seeing on the other side of the road if I were sitting on that bench...maybe I have a thermos of hot chocolate too. haha

I love your scene, your tree branches are so realistic. I have such a hard time with creating branches. I'd like to join the competition. When I read of it on Michelle's blog, I thought I'd had to paint something to earn it. How lovely it is so easy. Honor

Robert said...

competition or not I really like this painting..:)

Rita T. said...

I think this one is my favorite because it reminds me of home, though I really don't like snow that much. Something nostalgic about the painting, though.

I already subscribe to your feed. Great stuff.

Alcy's Hobby Room said...

I have subscribed to your email & would like to join the competition. Not sure if I qualify to join as I live in Asia. If I am, then I hope to win the painting because where I live there's no snow (only sun, rain & more sun!). Looking at your painting "Too Cold To Rest" will definitely help to cool me in this hot, humid weather. Thank you.

Hi John -

I was so jealous of last month's winners - what a stunning painting Outside the Pavilion, Whitby is. Then you offer this. Your work is just...stunning.

I would like to be entered, please. I subscribe to your feed - and love it. :)

Thanks so much!

Emily said...

I'd like to enter the competition! I live somewhere depressingly warm and sunny these days, but I grew up far to the north, walking to school in the snow. Your lovely painting is so evocative of those days for me.

John, I'm so happy you've chosen this painting for this month's competition. I love it so much because it reminds me of home here in the US, oddly enough. Wish me luck! And thank you so much! You're awfully talented.

I've just subscribed to your email, John, and I would love to enter your competition. This painting makes me feel like running up the hill (well, perhaps not actually 'running', but maybe trudging instead), hopping on a sled and yelling "wheeeeeee" all the way down! Cheers! ~Elizabeth

ArtyJohn said...

Thanks Elizabeth
I'm glad the painting makes you so happy.
Thanks for entering the competition.
