Originally, I said that the top ten designs would be posted. But I received only three designs, so I decided to put the selection to my panel of judges.
I didn’t get the participation I expected. You might say the contest fell flat on its face. But you have to agree – the designs I did get are fabulous!
The winner of the “Paint the Writer’s Wagon” Contest is Shawn MacKenzie from Vermont!
Runner-up design was submitted by Angie Ledbetter of Louisiana. Angie blogs at Gumbo Writer.
Angie said, “What a great way to spend a Sunday. My entry is a conglomeration — or mixed media, if you will — of paint, pencil, photographs, printed and torn-from-magazine images collaged on canvas, with some Sharpies, fine point pens, paint pencils, a tiny bit of bling and who knows what else thrown in.”
The third design was not submitted via official channels, and the artist did not respond to my request for her contact info.
Of the prizes available, Shawn picked a set of two Kathryn Magendie Books, Tender Graces and Secret Graces, signed by the author. Shawn will also get her design poster-sized!
A very special Thank You to Kathryn Magendie for providing the awarded prize. You can find her books at her website. Follow her on Twitter. Kathryn also blogs at Tender Graces and is on staff at the Rose and Thorn Journal.
