Just trying to clear up some confusion. The painting idea and the contest are separate things.
The contest can be found here.
The painting thing is basically trying to keep the whole idea behind painting table Saturday going. It seems the original driving force has been dark for a while. So I want to keep it going. What I will basically do is get a list of everyone wanting to be a part of it and pointing people to your blog once a week.
I hope this clears up some confusion on the hole contest versus painting fun.
