congratulations to our week six t-shirt winners-ahlia and Kathy!
And thank you to everyone who voted in this week's contest! I hope you will visit and vote again in the coming weeks. Better yet, please join us and make some art!
And an early congratulations to Deena for her uncontested Week 7 win!
While we wish she'd had some competition, it is a fantastic painting and worthy of the extra attention!!
