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 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

February pARTy Showcase

February pARTy participant Linda Massey had a special challenge thrown her way in the days leading up to the pARTy deadline. Here's what she emailed along with her entry (pictured above):

"...I didn't think I would get you something as Friday morning while I was feeding in the foot caught and (I) fell head over tea kettle onto the concrete aisle way onto my head... I wasn't able to drop feed buckets and get my hands down to block the fall so my hard head took the hit.... I spent the better part of the day getting checked for concussions, taking x-rays and CT scans and spent the night swelling up and turning B and B.... I have some whiplash but basically I was fine. But my body nerves were so shaken I couldn't stop my right hand from shaking... the doc said that was okay and would go away after a day or two... so this aft. I picked up a brush and sure enough I was fine. And painting was better medicine than the doctors prescribed for the pain. "

We would like to award Linda Massey the Gold Medal this time around!

Thanks, Linda, for playing, despite your injuries. We hope that you are continuing to feel better.

  1. I think she needs the gold hard hat as well. Great painting.
    Do you think there is a connection between clumsy and artistic? My friend just broke her thumb in a car door and me... I try to count how many times I've broken my little toe.

  2. We have to dig up the photo she sent us!

  3. Whoa - hope you are all better by now! ouch! Great painting - definitely good for the healing process ;-)

  4. Great article and the tips are very omprehensive. For sure many entrepreneurs with small and big businesses are going to benefit from this. Keep it up!
