As much as it galls me to say this, by honor and by right, I must 'Ray beat me in the feckin' paint challenge, but I'm pretty sure he cheated'. There, I said it now excuse me while I go sick up.
Would you just look at the little bastard smiling there like a boy let out of school for the day. With a final score of 60 to 57 he eked out a win and I bet right now he's sipping champagne and dancing a jig while chanting 'I beat Anne, I beat Anne'
Now Ray may be an arsemonkey, but I learned a lot from this challenge and a lot from following his blog for the past year (feels more like 10) and I'm a better painter because of it. I really am happy that a painter of his skill level would bother with helping out someone like myself (Jesus, I'm going to be sick again, I can taste it).
And Fran, I'm sorry, I tried but the fecker beat me and now you'll likely be getting a sculpt of a pile of shite for your birthday.
But there is good news because I won something different. Ian from A Blog With No Name was doing a giveaway and I won a limited addition resin sculpt of a Barbarian by Degra, who uses some of the finest sculptors in the business. As soon as he hits 100 followers, Ian is doing another, bigger give-away so get your arses on over there and follow him or you may find yourself on the receiving end of one of my wacky Challenges in the future.
I've got some things coming up that I'm really excited about. I'm doing a story set in Ireland and it's an epic legend with dragons and hero's and villains.
Next week the Hubby is doing a guest post and he's promised me he will reply to the comments. Some of you will finally get the chance to ask him how in the hell he puts up with me and he will tell you. I'm so fecked.
