The passing of a great artist 'Dave Farrow' and this contest is to honor his life, his art, and his memory.
Dave passed in November 2019
The URL to DAVE'S Portfolio is:
Please visit his shop and take time to comment on as many of his works as you want to. This is to honor a good friend and fellow artist. I am grateful to each of you who do this. I hope it will help his wife Loraine to see how many friends and artists life's he touched here on FAA.
A Landscape Painting in watercolor, pencil, acrylic or oil, photography, digital art mixed media
Before you begin your work to honor Dave, please go to his Shop and Look at his work. Like and favor as many as you wish. He visited and commented on many of our works and I tried to come up with a way that we could honor this great man and artist.
Pick one of his works you like and color pencil, paint with oil, watercolor or acrylic paint a landscape that emulates one of Dave's works. It doesn't have to be exactly like it, just something that is similar.
This contest submissions begins today Jan 4, 2020 and ends Jan 11, 2020 at which time Voting will begin On Jan 12, 2020 and end on Jan 14, 2020. At the end of the contest 3 winners will be announced.
Submit up to 2 works of a Landscape after viewing Dave's work.
'I will be checking to see that we have been to Dave's shop and commented on his work.' So please be generous with your Honor visits to Dave's Page. Dave's wife left a sweet message at Dave's Shop so take time to read it, please. It was to all of us.
There will be 3 winner's, 3 honorable mentions, and 3 of the host's favorite works. So the total in all will be 9 winners.
Do not and I stress DO NOT SUBMIT ANY NUDITY, VULGAR or material that is not family oriented. If such work is found in the submissions, it will be removed without NOTICE. This is to be a landscape of nature in honor of a Wonderful Artist whose work was always beautiful, refreshing and Nature oriented.
You have 8 days counting to day to submit work.
You must be a member of FAA to submit work.
You have 3 days to vote and may vote for as many images as you like but only 1 once for any single art work.
Members/non-Members alike are invited to vote.
THERE WILL BE NO SOLICITATION OF ANY KIND: For those who do not follow this rule and it comes to my attention, I will disqualify them from winning and remove their art work, and another winner will be chosen in their place. Some contest I allow Solicitation but for this one because it is to honor one of our own, I am solidifying the NO SOLICITATION FOR THIS CONTEST. Thank you ahead of time for understanding and sticking to the rules.
The prize is the chance to honor one of our own in the Art World. A Great Artist and wonderful friend who will live on through his art he gave to the world.
Guess that covers it folks, now let's go, have fun and start Honoring Dave Farrow, Friend, Artist, Humorous Being, Special Person.
Note: I will open up the conversation in the Discussion area for those of you who wish to come and leave messages. I emailed Mrs. Farrow and told her of the contest and want to send copies of the messages left there for Dave.
Thank you one and all for helping me to make this a successful endeavor and I truly hope you will enjoy the contest. Dave would have been tickled about this. I believe I hear him laughing now. :-)
