Happy Friday to you!
I was sure you’d want to know that I have the website current and refreshed. New images posted and links to new work on the front page, there’s even an entirely new page added…just waiting for you to come visit. Why should you? Well, I’m going to assume if you read this blog you like my art so over 40 new images is one reason!
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!
I’ve also got an offer for you! It’s a way to show my thanks to those of you who support me as well as expand my fan base a bit. Win/Win!
I really do appreciate you supporting my art in so many different ways. Visiting galleries & shows, reading the blog, visiting the website, words of encouragement, collecting my art, liking my Facebook Page, signing up for my newsletter, taking a class and recommending me to friends. Wow, you guys are busy (and amazing), thank you!
So on to the fun stuff - I will be giving away one 8 x 10″ (or 8 x 8″ if the image is square) print of my digital and/or photo art each day from now through Thanksgiving. Are you as excited about that as I am? I’m pretty sure I heard voices in cyberspace asking, “How will it work, Lynne? Please tell us!” Well, since you asked…
Each day you can enter by doing one (or more) of these things:
*Sign up/follow this blog via email – Look in right column at the top of this page, click on “Sign Me Up” and every time I write a new blog post it will arrive in your inbox so you’ll never miss a thing! Already subscribed? What about my other blog? It’s full of digital art (like the kind you could win)? Same instructions, just do it at Digital+Art+Daily instead. Or do both and you’ve gotten your first two entries submitted already!
*Go to my Facebook Page (http://www.facebook.com/lynnemedskerart) and click that “Like” button!
*Visit the website (www.lynnemedsker.com) and pick out an image that you’d like to win. Left click on it, then hit “Copy Shortcut” (for Windows) or ” Copy Image Address” (for Mac). Then post that image on your Facebook profile and put @Lynne Medsker Art & Photography in the description so I will see it on my page too. (Yes, I just gave you permission to copy my work…this time! Otherwise I prefer you ask first.)
*Do the same selection as listed above but post the link to the image to your Twitter account, being sure to add @lynnemedskerart in your post so I see it!
*Speaking of which, you can also enter by following me on Twitter! I’m not an avid tweeter but I do enjoy sharing interesting info and fun stuff on there when I get a chance.
*Another option is to select your favorite image(s) to add to one of your Pinterest boards. Be sure to put a mention to me in the description/comments @Lynne Medsker. Of course you’re welcome to follow my boards there too if any of them interest you. :)
*You can also sign up for my twice-monthly newsletter when you visit the website, there is a link to sign up at the bottom of each page.
*The last (and my personal favorite) way to enter is to (please!) tell your friends about my art and ask them to do any (or all) of the items listed above. When they do they’ll gain an entry and you will too! (Ask them to mention your name so you’ll get credit.) As an artist it can be difficult to “advertise” yourself so I am really relying on you – my family, friends, fans and fellow artists – to help me with some word-of-mouth promoting.
So that’s it! You can do any of the above items as often as you like each day (although if you are sharing my art I’d prefer you’d use a different image each time/day, please). I’ll cut off entry at midnight (Eastern time) each evening and announce the winner the following day at noon, here on my blog, as well as my Facebook page and Twitter. (Disclaimer: I will do my best to make sure I get each entry via these different sites but can’t be responsible for missed entries, be sure to mention/tag/link me.)
I’m excited to see which of you will be winners and also which art you’ll choose! The prints will be processed and mailed the week after Thanksgiving. Thanks so much for participating and GOOD LUCK!
P.S. Those steps above in BOLD? They are great for helping any person or business that you enjoy and support. Just to recap them:
Sign-up/Follow their blogs
“Like” their pages on Facebook
Share their information/images/posts on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and other social media sites
Sign-up for their newsletters (then forward them to your friends!)
Tell your friends! If you’ve found something you enjoy there’s a good chance your friends will too!
