How to Name Your File before you Submit it to an Art Show

FYI: I'm using my blog post today mainly to help my AWA ladies. With the upcoming new year and new shows on the horizon, yes, there are submission deadlines within the next two weeks, one to Brush with Burden and one to the LSU Vet School Show - I wanted to get this to the membership now. 

As VP of AWA,  I decided to put together a video for our members who may not be as "tech savvy" as I am. Hahaha! I love that. I'm not that tech savvy but I do know a few things about a few things. Some of which includes art stuff. 

Anyway, I am including in this post a short video on how to rename file names for the benefit of our AWA Members. I do hope it makes sense. (See at the bottom of this post)

Basically, you chose the file that you want to rename. Click on the file and rename it as follows:

LastnameFirstname,PaintingName,SizeofPainting,Medium,Price.jpg

If not for sale then instead of Price you would put "NFS".

PLEASE NOTE: There may be additional ways specified by each show. ALWAYS refer to a show's Prospectus for submissions before you submit your artwork!

Brush With Burden filing deadline is January 20, 2016. Link to their info page is here. And the Call for Entry link is here.

LSU Vet School Animals in Art Show filing deadline is January 8, 2016 through Entry Thingy. The link for Entry Thingy is here

You will have to register with Call for Entry before making submissions on their site. You will have to register with Entry Thingy before making submissions on their site as well.

So, GOOD LUCK and let me know how it goes!

Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen....

Can you name all of Santa's reindeers?  I can now. But back when I was a kid my Daddy challenged us one year to name all of them for him for a dollar.  I'm just saying the competition was a little tough when you're the second youngest and the older ones had age and knowledge as an advantage over you. I don't know who won but I'm sure it wasn't me. 
Christmas Chaos as we try to take our annual family photo

This time is great for remembering Christmases and holidays past and looking forward to making new memories with my family again this year.

I'm hoping to make your gift giving more enjoyable and easy so that you can spend more time with family and friends. Well, maybe not all of them.

Buying an original painting is the perfect idea when you are shopping for the personal gift for someone you love, or maybe you just like them a little bit, or even if you want a cool idea for a fun white elephant gift. Art is the way to go. Every year I have a few people where I pound my brain wanting to get them something unique as their gift. Art fills that place.

Paintings vary in size from 7" x 7" on up to 19" x 31".
