And the Winner is:

“SABLE SPIRIT” entered by Aleshia Kiedaisch.  Congratulations Aleshia!

We laboured over this for several hours and then the difficult task fell to me to select “the one.”  I will say that it was much harder to do than I would have thought as there are so many great names.  Thank you again to all who entered and shared their suggestions.  Cheers,  Joan

The Contest Is Now Closed

Thank you to everyone that has taken the time to send in your entry.  I am overwhelmed and humbled by your responses.

There have been 257 names entered . . . but I can only pick one. However if you would like to suggest titles for any of the other paintings, please feel welcome to do so.  I may not be able to email each of you personally to thank you, but please know that I appreciate each and every suggestion.

The winner of this contest will be posted later today.  Thank you.


FRIDAY, MAY 20th, 12:00pm

I’m stumped.  I have not been able to come up with a title for this artwork that accurately reflects the quirky expression on this horse’s face.  So I thought that I would like some help with the naming.

Hence the “Name the Painting” Contest

Simply email your suggestion(s) to me at Subject line “contest” That’s it! (I also encourage you to check out my Facebook fan page for my most recent updates.)

The winning name will be announced on Monday, June 20th and the winner will receive a limited edition print of the artwork.

Nice and easy!
