Dennis and Nolan, thank you for chosing my Lily for the replay contest!! It was so unexpected :o  what fun though! :D
Paint Basket is such a happy part of my life and a little win like this makes me even happier :yippee: . I was struggling to find the heading to put this under but chose "Motivation" because this win has certainly given me that! I appreciate you creating this contest for us newbies out there still learning from your wonderful lessons.
Thank you for the care, attention and generosity you provide on Paint Basket!!! :hug:  Now, off to figure out how to spend by winnings ;) .....

Musika, here's a cut and paste of last weeks newsletter announcing the "replay challenge"...
*************************
The Buzz
Last week we made the announcement for the oil challenge - to paint any painting from the previous oil lessons. We are happy to announce that our winner is Corine with her go at the Rose. As the winner she will get $14 credit. Congrats! We encourage everyone to post those completed paintings. Here is the winning painting. You can view a close up HERE.
 

This challenge was great fun so we have decided to extend it for another week, but this time, we will give out two $14 prizes - one for the best watercolour painting and another for the best oil / acrylic painting. The paintings must be done from one of the class replays and posted on the forum. Good luck and have fun!

See what I missed by having a life outside pb!  I didn't know about this either.  Of course I probably wouldn't finish a painting in time... but it's fun to watch......hmm.. and I read the news letter too.... maybe just skimmed over it! 
Congrats  Corine and Denise!! :clap: :clap:

 :thankyou: It is also just one of our ways in thanking you all for your support and camaraderie.
We get a tremendous satisfaction when we see others benefiting from our knowledge and expertise. I personally believe in the Biblical principle of What you Sow you Reap.

We appreciate you all - so, keep on  :painting:

Dennis, I agree, you can't go wrong with Biblical principles as it is our manual for daily living.  Patricia
