I was browsing through all the winning challenges from the past few months and thought how time consuming it is to do this and pondered ..... is there another a way to view  the winning art ...... maybe  a place that would feature all the winning works of art in one place?    :whistle:


A couple of suggestions to run by everyone to see what you all think.   

   :)  Have a gallery dedicated to the winning challenges only.    ..... 

....  a title could be  "The Monthly Challenge Gallery"    ( suggestion only )


   :)  At the end of each year, there could be a member vote for the best overall painting posted in the galley for that year ........ artist of the year award?


I'm not sure what that would mean as extra work  to set this up ..... It's just an idea.

Maybe I'm way off base with this, but no harm in asking.    Thanks.   :)

I wasn't going to comment until an official showed up...I think the idea of a gallery is great-it's hard to see all the great work submitted until it is all pulled together for the the vote.  :whistle:

Hi Guys, I think this is a fantastic idea!  :heeha:   Thanks Ray for bringing this post to my attention.  O0

After posting all of the winning works at the end of last year I had thought something along those lines.... with all that has been going on it sort of went to the back burner.

This is great...since my artwork time is basically nil at the moment, I think this will give me something great to focus on.

Ray, I may just be call on you for some brainstorming and ideas.  :think:

 :yippee: Wow, this is going to be such fun!!!  :yippee: More prezzies all round!!!!!  :2funny:
Cheers, Val

What a great idea.  It is a good incentive for me to try harder with the challenges.

Look forward to seeing the gallery and maybe someday doing well enough to be in it!

Wow this is certainly an incentive for doing our best and do the challenges.  As always Nolan/Dennis you are an amazing/caring duo. 

Great idea Didwaud for thinking of posting all the winnings to be viewed in one gulp.
