    Awesome Kim. The most amazing art contest on the internet. Your portraits are amazing. Fresh, crisp and full of original perspective by a master. I have to try and dream something up from Christmas past.

  • RennyBA 22.10.07
     

    First of all: thanks for your visit and comments with warm thoughts on my Love Story post.

    Santa is someone I'm familiar with - you know originally he came from Norway :-)

  • Diane 22.10.07
     

    Great idea as usual!
    You are so generous - and I am so greedy - I might just enter again....
    :-)

  • Kim 22.10.07
     

    hi Boyd
    thanks ...I'm sure that you can come up with a story that is memorable...especially with your story telling skills :)


    hi Renny...
    your Love Story post was very romantic :)
    haha you're so lucky to have Santa over your way :)


    of course you can enter again Diane...LOL
    this ones a lot simpler than the last one and you have a whole month...to write the 2 entries...

  • Colin 22.10.07
     

    Hi Kim,

    I already did a Christmas Past on Santa's blog.....but hell....I'll do another lol, after all I've had a few of them - well 1 or 2 anyway hahahaha because I'm still only a babe in arms :)

  • Kim 22.10.07
     

    I saw your post Colin...and I loved the photo of you as a baby ..priceless....you're half way there already ...all you have to do now is post your reasons and choice for a free portrait here and you're in the competition :)

  • Matthew Anton 23.10.07
     

    this is a great idea...it seems only the most referred people through our history have portraits; nice to get a chance to get one ourselves.

  • Kim 23.10.07
     

    thanks Matthew...
    that does seem the case...and yes a portrait is something that can be passed down so it is part of a person's history :)

  • Anita 23.10.07
     

    WOW, what a prize! To win a Barker portrait - lucky whoever!

    PS You've been tagged - see my blog!

  • Kim 23.10.07
     

    thanks Anita
    will pop over and check it out :)

  • Santa Claus 24.10.07
     

    Ho! Ho! Ho! Everyone.

    I'm waiting for your photos and stories. Santaclausblog@gmail.com

    Start sending and then get people to vote for you ☺

  • Kim 24.10.07
     

    hi Santa
    thanks for dropping by....
    I'm working on further promotion right now... :-X

  • Colin 25.10.07
     

    Hi Kim,

    I shall have to email Santa a pic, as long as Blog Elf doesn't get too caried away if he spots it!! You know what he's like lol.

    Why would I want to win a portrait? Well, I wouldn't go for one of me but one of my daughter so that she would have her own piece of history and see how she changes over the years. I have been taking photo's of her since her birth, almost 15 years ago, and they are all in albums which tell her life story. A portrait would be the ultimate picture which she would also be able to pass on to her children as part of history itself :)

    Good luck to everyone.

    Colin

  • Kim 25.10.07
     

    haha Colin...
    I know what the blog Elf is like .....can you nail it down?

    I couldn't think of a nicer reason for wanting a portrait.....your pretty daughter would make a lovely portrait.... :)

    oh boy I donot know where to post this Kim I sent the letter but donot know where to go now? I keep getting error messages on your blog abort messages
    hb~

  • Kim 12.11.07
     

    hi Christina
    you can leave the comment/reason here in this comments section...
    I have no idea what the error message could be .....were you sending it to
    kim@laketrees1.com

  • harleyblues 14.11.07
     

    Hiya Kim!
    no when I enter your site here I get an awful error message than I hit back space,

    anyways on My Santa entry as you know I have no chrstmas piccies to post as you know from my letter to Sannaaaa!
    anyways I suppose the best memory I have is The Beatles thats what I would like the painting to be if I won. Cuz the Beatles and their music is the only thing that have been there since my family was not~ The Beatles music carried me thru such horrible awful times as a young girl and past that even being homeless as a kid and a couple times as an adult. some things just happen in life. I have saved money for years just to follow Paul McCartney to 4 coutries to date quite a feat from all the mess that I came from. The Beatles are so magical I wish I could thank Paul McCartney & Ringo personally for being the faraway family I never had.
    thankyou

  • Kim 14.11.07
     

    hi Christina....
    I have no idea what the error is....
    I might have to do a poll on it to see if anyone else is getting the same error.....

    this is a great reason Christina.....
    obviously the Beatles were and are your heroes...
    thanks for submiting your choice and best of luck :)
    have a terrific evening... :)

  • Kim 20.11.07
     

    hi Kimmy....
    I do hope your family situation gets better.....I am so sorry ....
    thanks for your choice and reasons.....wishing you the best of luck in the competition ...

    Colins daughter should be the winner of the Christmas Portrait for Colins is a very special person who is always giving of himself and never asking for a thing in return and he really wants his daughter to win so he can keep this treasure always to cherish and admire. As she grows older through the years,it will not matter for her portrait will capture the magic and excitement of her youth and her beauty will be frozen in time. Colin will be able to look at that beautiful portrait and remember the good times, shared together as she was growing up. Memories forever captured in this portrait where his daughter will always look and remain as she is now." Daddy's little girl...................... ( This is my story why I feel Colin daughter should win)

  • Kim 15.12.07
