Is it going to be happening this week? They had almost all of the park blocked off today.

This will happen, no matter where we have to draw!

Who knows what the weather will bring today. I suppose I could look at the international knowledge system or something like that to find out, but... meh.

Today we have a returning sponsor in "The Broadway Center" and a theme of "Brew, five, three"

Find a surface at the park (If there are any left) and Draw! Draw! Draw!

(alas, once again logistics of life... and a last day of school visit to Gibson's ... will keep me from my appointed rounds)

RR, I take it "soon" doesn't translate to "today," eh? :-D

Thankfully, I just discovered Redorblack Nigelbottom's pictures, and reviewed the artwork. This allows me, with very little time left, to cast my vote.

I vote for...Redorblack Nigelbottom! I do love me some old school space art, and his space scene on the fountain found itself to be my favorite, this week.

Where are the photos? I think we should extend the vote until there are photos up.

I love Ben's abstract art, with its bold colors and intriguing shapes. That being said, though, I am going to VOTE for Gini's colorful "Brew Five Three" heart since it was the only piece that played with the proposed theme. (And the colors really popped off of the black.)

extended voting ONLY if a participant invokes the history eraser button rule.

I'm sticking with the vote that I made yesterday, except didn't make because of the magic history eraser button. I still vote for Redorblack (Scott)!

Even though I already voted, I vote for Debivans's idea.

Even though I often fail to vote by midnight (either due to forgetfulness or not being near a computer), and even though I've received many a late vote (by hours or days) for my own entries...I've always liked the immediacy of it all. Statistically speaking, people are actually less likely to remember to vote the longer any contest goes on. Plus, there have, in the past, been time-sensitive prizes. And I like knowing the results quickly.

I think reminding/encouraging people to post their images in the thread (not just Twitter and Facebook) as soon as they're able is more helpful than extending voting.

Except lately, even with immediate photos, there has been diminished participation in voting. Even amongst those who chalked.

Can we still vote? If so I am going to vote for myself because I am really happy with my Munny in peril and I accidently knelt in dog poo in order to make it.

Frost Park dog poo is the worst.
