Well folks, it's a day late, but I am ready to announce our prize winner for our first painting contest! Apache 6 has won with a majority of the votes for his entry:He'll be receiving our grand prize entry, and we ask that he gets in touch with us so we can get him his prizes!Thanks to all the contributors and we'll be running another contest in the Spring!Now, it's post 100, and I just want to say to our 60,000+ page views, and 52 followers one word:Wow. When I began this blog a year ago, I never thought it would have this level of support and fans that would have people clambering for more. I promise to have more of my own work up..and there is another arena I plan to be delving into soon..3D printing.
