Contest Winner – Congrats Aleshia!

No longer Unnamed! This painting is now called Sable Spirit - Congrats Aleshia!

Hello Everyone;

First, I wish to thank everyone that took the time to enter our “Name the Painting” contest. It was a truly difficult task to narrow down the list even to the top contenders. A small group of friends and family spent many hours between last night and today going over the list many times . . . inevitably the last choice was mine to select “the one” from the many.

And the winner is:

“SABLE SPIRIT” entered by Aleshia Kiedaisch . . . congratulations Aleshia!! It has also now been posted under the contest tab on this blog.

The wonderful response to these paintings tells me that, although tiny, Sable Island and its wild horses hold a large place in the hearts and imaginations of Canadians. I would like to invite you to suggest other titles for paintings in this series. I may not be able to respond personally to all of you, but I will pay attention. The new paintings will be posted as they are finished on my Sable Island Horses blog.

We extended the Show too!

For those of you that live in proximity to my studio, we have had so many people calling and asking if they can come out to the studio to see the paintings that we have extended the show. The show and studio will be open daily from 1-5 pm until end of day on Sunday, July 3rd, or by appointment by calling us at 1-250-752-0395.

A most humble and heartfelt “Thank you” to all.

Warmest Regards,
Joan

Unnamed...but not for much longer!

“Name the Painting” Contest Closed

Our contest is now closed for entries but Wow, you people have been incredible!!!  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 . . . and I can only pick one.  But let me tell you what has happened because of this . . . some of the names suit the other paintings in the series and some of the names have actually sparked new paintings in my head!!

This entire “Sable Island” series is just getting started.   I have just spent the last 2 days (at our opening here at the studio) talking non-stop about Sable Island.  The stories and aura of this magic island and its horses have completely captivated me.  20 paintings is a good start!

SO, 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.  I believe that “TIME” is the only thing any of us really ever have to spend, so I most humbly thank you for your time and consideration.

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