Is a painting competition, that I participated in this past Saturday (Indianapolis, In), and your vote counts. The way it works is the "contenders" sign up, not knowing what materials they will be given (we know we will get canvas, paint and brushes....but thats it). You show up on the painting day (6.3.06), with 4 hours to complete your painting.
This is the fun part. The paintings from that day are now up online for voting! You choose your favorite 3 anytime between now and 6-15-06. From the 100+ paintings created on that day the online votes will narrow it down to the top 32, who will be the contenders in the main event. On 6.16.06 these 32 will be narrowed down to 16 (based of votes from the crowd), and then go head to head in battle. Two paintings will be placed next to each other on the stage, the crowd cheers for their favorite, the loser faces THE Wheel of Death! Being destroyed right on the spot. The winner will receive $2000!
Visit the website to view all of the paintings and vote! It will ask for your e-mail after you vote, you then have to confirm your vote through your e-mail, for it to count!http://www.groovetruck.com/artvsart/index.htm
I am #76, and the title of my painting is "Where there is one.....there are a thousand."
The paintings look much better in person, but it is a chance for you to see what Indianapolis is made of! Thanks for looking!
