Just as a point of information, our forum brother Creblan is having trouble logging onto this site at the moment. But he's most part way through creating an image for this Challenge. So it's likely that, if he still can't get on, he'll send his finished work to me and I'll post it up via my account.
I'm just letting you know by way of clarity and fairness, and in case, if his Christmas pic is good enough to win, no one thinks either "Hey, I never saw that painting before? FIX!!!" or, 'Doesn't that Hacksaw bloke actually work at IFX? FIX!!!"
Although I can assure you that anything I ever painted for the challenge would be laughed off the screen, so it's never going to be my art that wins!
