Inspiration, Contest and Giveaway!

At the beginning of the year, right around the time I started participating in the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge hosted by Leslie Saeta on her blog Slice of Life, I decided that, as a graduate with an art degree, it was time for me to go ahead and make myself an artist's page on facebook.  So I did.  It's called Wise Ramblings:  The Art of Janin Wise.

Shortly after that, I read a site that said it never hurts to ask.  That you should feel alright in promoting you-- that you have to be your own fan.  Now, the author of the piece was talking about self publishing a novel, but in my opinion, this would hold true for all the creative endeavors!  ...and I realized that could possibly include mine...

But I let it stew in my head a bit.

Now, if you're on facebook, I'm sure you've had the Country Outfitter's boot giveaways show up in your news feed.  It shows up in mine from people who don't know each other at all.  And it dawned on me that by doing their giveaway-- they're actually bringing people to their page.... but I'm an artist...

So I came up with an idea earlier this week.

It's a contest running through Tuesday morning (January 29th):

If Wise Ramblings: The Art of Janin Wise gets 250 'Likes' by the end of Monday night, one winner will get to choose a critter to inspire the last painting for the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge on Wednesday, January 31st, AND that winner will get the signed original!

All you have to do to enter the contest is like the page. 

I even made two easy to share options (:


 and


I'm actually excited and hope we make it.  I'd love to find out what the winner chooses (:
