Here is a slightly different contest. I agreed to do a couple paintings for UnityPoint Iowa Methodist Hospital, for one of the rooms where they do EEG tests for children. The room is very bland, neutral brown, and does not even have a window. I thought paintings of a couple of bettas would liven things up.
This is where you come in.
I am looking for photos of your favorite betta boys. I would like for their whole bodies/fins to be in the photo, long fins preferred. The more flare, the better. Let's try for medium sized images, because I want to be able to see the details on your betta, but I don't want the thread to become too heavy. Maximum of 3 fish per entry.
Please include their names so I can sign the paintings with them.
This contest will have 2 winners, whose bettas will be featured in the paintings. I am planning to document the project from start to finish, so the winners will be provided with all the photos and images of the final result in high and low resolution (ready for sharing or printing). Depending on how popular this is, I may let everyone else see the pictures, too
I will judge based on which fish will work best in a composition.
Deadline is September 22nd!
Sorry that it's so soon but I don't want to keep the hospital waiting.
