We have survived 10 whole days. Whew. Now, I think it’s time to have a little fun. I’ve been toying with the best way to do this. After mulling it over for a week or so, I’m just going to do what I do best; dive in and figure it out as I go.
Which means, this may be a weekly thing or it may be a total nightmare and I’ll have to think of something else. Anyway, what am I talking about?
Yep. Every Friday I’m going to announce a winner for a free painting. As in it’ll cost you nothing, nada, zippo, zilch… and shipping/delivery is on the house. Wherever you are I’ll get it to you.
I’m going to make you work for it a little. I am trying to build my mailing list here, so you and I can still talk should social media fall off the map.
(I know, fat chance, but the mailing list is my turf. My turf, my rules.)
Here’s what you have to do… #1. From now until this Thursday at 9PM EST (or when I go to bed, which could be early Friday morning – night owl habits die hard), I want you to share, forward, or shout out and get your friends to subscribe to this mailing list.
ONLY if you want to and ONLY if you feel like they would enjoy being part of this project. No, you may NOT add people yourself. That would be spammy and I would have to hurt you. They have to sign up on their own. It’s the rules. See? R.U.L.E.S.
#2. Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with a list of who you shared with. For every subscriber that you sent my way, you’ll get an entry into the drawing.
Winner and freebie painting will be announced on Friday.
(And if all goes well – it’ll be EVERY Friday and with each new week, our new subscriber friends will be in on the drawing too!)
PS: If you think this is a horrible idea, email me at the address above. I’m open to suggestions! 😀
RULE CHANGE: Anyone who is on my mailing list will be entered into the FREEBIE FRIDAY drawing. That makes me feel better. If you still want to share this great project, then go for it! But I’m not going to make that a requirement for being included in the drawing. If you’re on the list, YOU’RE IN. If you’re not… well, what are you waiting for?
Oh right… today’s painting…
3×9in Acrylic on canvas panel. $10. SOLD
Miss this one?
Sign up to see these paintings first.
What’s this all about? Check out the details.
Also: I will be mailing all sold paintings every Friday.
If you’d like to keep a “running tab” of your paintings, make sure your first purchase is with shipping and any subsequent purchase is a “pick up” (aka: free shipping). Then on Friday, I will seal up your package and ship them together.
If I know you personally, I can hold items for you. After your “pick up” purchase, please send me an email so we can arrange a time to get your item(s) to you.
