Hi, everyone!  I’m here to clarify a little bit about my new contest.  No one has to be a great artist to enter!  Almost any creative visual you invent will qualify!  I’m looking forward to seeing what you come up with…and I have no preconceived ideas!  It can be a hand-drawn painting or pencil sketch.  It can be a computer-generated picture or montage.  It can be one of those fun collages we did in school, in which you cut out pictures from magazines and pasted them onto a poster board to capture the flavor of the Victorian Era.  (LOVE the Victorian era! LOL)  It can be paper dolls or a trailer-type video.  How about a floor-plan for a house, a rendering of a garden?  It can be anything visual inspired by anything in any of my books!

Plus, you can phone a friend!  If you have a daughter, writing buddy, co-worker, anyone who is good at this kind of thing, invite them to help!  For one thing, how would I know?  🙂  But mostly…the more the merrier, right?  And remember, no names attached unless you want the acclaim!

So don’t be intimidated.  Come play–and get the chance to win $200! When you’ve got something to submit, send it to my private email address, KOBrien@aol.com, and I’ll send an email back confirming its arrival.

In fact, perhaps I’ll make something myself, just to get things started–and to show how low I set the bar! 🙂  As I’ve pointed out over and over, I have no artistic talent.  None.  Zero.  My skills extend only to drawing holiday pictures on the kitchen whiteboard (see below)…a tradition I adore, but not because it showcases my skill! LOL But I love playing with colored pencils, and paints and scissors.  Watch here for my fabulous contribution to “Looking at Love,” coming as soon as I can possibly think of something!
