    The Details…

     

    Each week, I post the weekly Call for Entries along with the previous weeks completed portrait (above). I may change the subject theme each week, or leave the theme open, so please pay close attention to the details in each announcement.

    Entries will be accepted through Friday afternoon around 5PM CST, at which time I will close comments and select one winner from the entries received. I’ll announce the winner on Saturday and post the completed portrait with the following week’s Giveaway announcement.

    Qualified entries will include a valid e-mail address, and the comment should include one link to a photograph owned/taken by the entrant. If you do not have a place to upload photos to link one, you can e-mail it to gallery *at* intricateart dot-com. Your entry, however, should be included in the comment section below, with your story – should you choose to include one.

    The Selection Process: In case you’re curious, I’ll share my little artsy process in selecting the winner. First – I do not read any entries at all during the week. I do not read them because I don’t want anyone’s entries to have any more time than any others to settle in my creative brain. At the end of the week, I close comments. When I sit down to go through all of the entries, I read the story first, and open the photo link in a new window. When I finish reading, I flip over to the photo and my initial reaction is what I go by.

    If your entry is not chosen, you may enter again. I encourage you to include a short story with your entry.

    Once you have won a portrait, I ask that you refrain from multiple entries, to give others an opportunity to win one as well.

    Your challenge? To inspire me! Choose your photo wisely – I will select a winner based on how the photo and/or story moves me.

    Good luck!!

    Today marks the start of Week #24 of my 2009 weekly graphite portrait giveaway! Each week, one winner will be selected to receive one 5×7 graphite (pencil) drawing from their photograph.

    Last week, there were no entries – which was a blessing in disguise. We spent the weekend getting my eldest ready for her camping trip, so time was precious.

    My plan, should that happen again, is to go back to previous weeks and draw a winner from previous entries.

    Custom german shepherd dog portrait giveaway pencil drawing by Leanne Wildermuth
    New! Video of me as I worked on Bubba’s portrait! Watch here!

    Today begins Week #22 of my 2009 weekly graphite portrait giveaway! Each week, one winner will be selected to receive one 5×7 graphite (pencil) drawing from their photograph.

    Last week’s winner was Kellie Mintern, of Mintern’s German Shepherds. She sent in a photo of Bubba, along with a link to his story and updates on him, which I found myself lost in as I went through last weeks entries.

    Kellie kept her friends updated on Bubba through back surgery, acupuncture and sadly, kidney failure. I ached with her as I read her updates and found myself thinking of my dear, sweet Chloe (a shepherd rottie mix) who we lost in 2006.

    Last week’s winner was Karen with her stunning German Shepherd, MoJo. She shared a beautiful poem about their relationship:

    I am worried…..
    you are there.
    I am so sad…..
    you are there.
    I reach out and touch you…..
    you are there.
    I am so very joyful…..
    you are there.
    I will never take for granted one minute of our lives…..
    that we have been blessed to share.

    Thank you so much for sharing, Karen! I know I’m not the only one who can relate to those words!

    budgie parakeet custom bird portrait drawing by Leanne Wildermuth
    Today begins Week #18 of my 2009 weekly graphite portrait giveaway! Each week, one winner will be selected to receive one 5×7 graphite (pencil) drawing from their photograph.

    Last week’s winner was Stephanie’s adorable Budgie parakeet, Pippin. Pippin passed away a little over a month ago, but while she was here, she made a huge difference in Stephanie’s life. You can read her first entry here, her most recent here.

    A note on framing for portrait winners: I recommend the Nielsen Bainbridge Archival Gallery Frame, available through Dick Blick.

    Weekly Contest Announcement!

     

    Each Monday, I post the weekly Call for Entries along with the previous weeks completed portrait (above). I may change the subject theme each week, or leave the theme open, so please pay close attention to the details in each announcement.

    Entries will be accepted through Friday afternoon around 5PM CST, at which time I will close comments and select one winner from the entries received. I’ll announce the winner on Saturday and post the completed portrait with the following week’s Giveaway announcement.

    Qualified entries will include a valid e-mail address, and the comment should include one link to a photograph owned/taken by the entrant. If you do not have a place to upload photos to link one, you can e-mail it to gallery *at* intricateart dot-com. Your entry, however, should be included in the comment section below, with your story – should you choose to include one.

    The Selection Process: In case you’re curious, I’ll share my little artsy process in selecting the winner. First – I do not read any entries at all during the week. I do not read them because I don’t want anyone’s entries to have any more time than any others to settle in my creative brain. At the end of the week, I close comments. When I sit down to go through all of the entries, I read the story first, and open the photo link in a new window. When I finish reading, I flip over to the photo and my initial reaction is what I go by.

    If your entry is not chosen, you may enter again. I encourage you to include a short story with your entry.
