Our Paintsites coordinators have decided to resume Paintsites! We recognize that the COVID pandemic is not over by any means, and we also recognize that some members will choose not to join Paintsites at this time. The blog will continue to be published as a Weekly Painting Blog for all our members with the same submission guidelines.
Paint site Guidelines
Check the Paintsites website for details including directions and possible cancellations. To keep our members and guests as safe as possible during the COVID-19 era, we must change how we do things. Some of the paintsites have visitor limits. When this occurs we will post the information in paintsite details on the Society website. Participants must wear masks and observe the 6 ft. rule. We no longer take photos of paintings on site. Please take your own photo, crop if needed, and submit to email@example.com according to our Weekly Blog submission guidelines.
Blog Submission Guidelines
We invite paintsite artists to paint or sketch during the week, pick one painting from that week and submit it by Saturday of that week. Here are some guidelines:
- Submit a digital photo of your artwork to firstname.lastname@example.org. Cropped photos are preferred.
- Include your name, the date and comments about the site or unique media notes.
- Be creative! Some of your best subjects are in or around your home. You may want to paint from personal photos of your travels.
- Submissions after Saturday midnight will appear in the following week's blog.
- One submission per member per week, please.
