“Name the Painting” Contest

Contest winners Aleshia and Bill with their horse Nessey and their print "Sable Spirit"

THURSDAY, JUNE 30th, 6:13 p.m.

Today we had the Name the Painting winners, Aleshia and her husband come by the studio. My husband (Paul) had previously gone down to Victoria to deliver the print to them and there was a little photo op with their horse Nessey (whom no doubt provided some inspiration)



MONDAY, JUNE 20th, 8:20 p.m.  

And the Winner is:

“SABLE SPIRIT” entered by Aleshia Kiedaisch.  Congratulations Aleshia!

We laboured over this for several hours and then the difficult task fell to me to select “the one.”  I will say that it was much harder to do than I would have thought as there are so many great names.  Thank you again to all who entered and shared their suggestions.

Cheers,  Joan

The Contest Is Now Closed

Thank you to everyone that has taken the time to send in your entry.  I am overwhelmed and humbled by your responses.

There have been 257 names entered . . . but I can only pick one. However if you would like to suggest titles for any of the other paintings, please feel welcome to do so.  I may not be able to email each of you personally to thank you, but please know that I appreciate each and every suggestion.

The winner of this contest will be posted later today.  Thank you.


SUNDAY, MAY 8th, 1:00pm

I’m stumped.  I have not been able to come up with a title for this artwork that accurately reflects the quirky expression on this horse’s face.  So I thought that I would like some help with it.

You can email your suggestion(s) to me using the form below.

The winner will receive a limited edition print of the “as yet unnamed” artwork.  It will be announced on Monday, June 20th.

Thanks, Joan

    I think this horse is saying,

    “How much longer?”

    “Do I have to pose?”

    Those are my suggestions for titles. Your work is beautiful, by the way!
