Will you vote for me?

like so many people, I too am begging for votes
but, the boating community is so cool that they usually respond
(the apathy in some other sports is stupifying)

1 - 10 stars (10 being the best)
and I have an ok score so far, probably the best I've done this early in the voting
Barnes Scott, ASCI drop 3 SHOWDOWN
so, if you would be so kind to click the link, click the amount of stars (obviously a 10 helps me more)
and then you're done

This is just the first round of this session but making it through this week into the knockout round gets the artist a fair amount of attention (up against 2400 other artists)
and could help me in my effort to get this new body of work a place to show

Ok. Now I'm off to pack up my art supplies for a trip to Durango area during the school break.

Thank you.

Scott Barnes

I voted for you but the Stuart Dee one really caught my eye.

there is alot of nice work on that site
(some crap too, but lots of very nice stuff)

Even though voting is not yet over (it goes until 4am Monday)
I wanted to say a very big THANK YOU to the boating community for their support

the score keeps creeping up, which tells me that lots of people are giving 9 and 10 stars.

for those who voted for my art
I narrowly lost out to some other people
when 2400 artists are competing for two spots, the chances are slim
but, I was happily suprised by the show of suppor the boating community gave me
so, as a way to say thank you, I put my art on some postcards/notecards by adding a new section to the service I usually use for printing tshirts
Waves : online store
I can't give away cards, stickers, posters, or anything else I came up with to say thank you
it's an economics thing (and a starving artist thing)
but, what makes this special is that all three paintings that are on the notecards available for purchase
is that the series is not yet complete
none of the paintings have been in a show yet
this particular section isnot tagged or registered, thus will not come up in the marketplace
and I'll take it down some time in January
Therefore, it's likely that only those who click the direct link will see or get these pieces
and those who do get them will be among the very few who have them at all.
I thought about posters, but the resolution through Cafepress is not impressive for bigger stuff.
I'll probably do Giclee prints in the spring of one of the images, but that ends up costing over $100 for very small images.
Thank you all who voted for me.
This is what I have to offer until I make a bit of a bigger impact on the art scene.
