Saying Thank You

I couldn't close this challenge without one more big THANK YOU to everyone who participated. You made this challenge feel like more than a giveaway, and I've heard from so many who felt like they gained much more than they anticipated through painting weekly and participating in the challenges.

Another huge thank you needs to go out to our sponsors, and I've listed them below. They were willing to partner with this little Canadian painter in a very generous way, and it was fun shipping out great prize packages every week to multiple winners.
