To lift a line from that O’Hara girl, “Fiddle Dee Dee”,’tis the year Twenty Ten, Yessirree! Perhaps the time to venture where you’ve never ever been? So uncap that tube, squeeze hue on your sable, and be the cayenne. J

As RayMar enters its twelfth year I smile with glee that we continue to manufacture plein air products for you. Taking Nike’s simple directive “Just Do It” is the best advice to launch any new idea and I encourage you to create paintings, preferably on a RayMar panel for the world to enjoy, (any reason not to think globally?).

And while delving into twelve, how about those twelve stellar finalists selected each month in our current contest? The feedback on the paintings has been phenomenal especially on Facebook. We put accomplished artist jurors in front of great art, request they write critiques on their selections then launch the results into cyberspace. And a new feature is all entries are shown at the end of the monthly contest. Everyone wins!

Seven more months remain in RayMar’s 4th annual original online contest and this month’s juror is the multi talented painter, author and instructor Joe Anna Arnett. We offer large dollars and Internet exposure as prizes but more importantly the galleries watch to discover you. Check with Robert Coombs and Jim Wodark. See you!
