Contests! One of the fun features of the FineArtAmerica website is the contests they run. 99% of these are just for fun—there are no prizes. Most of them only allow other FAA members to vote, but some of them allow public voting. Anyway, I enter these from time to time (I go through phases where I'll pay attention to them for a week or two and enter all that I qualify for, then I forget about them for months at a time), and when there is one with public voting, I will post it here in case you want to help me out by voting for my pieces. I will also post the FAA-only ones in case you want to watch the progress.
In almost all of the contests you can vote for as many pieces as you want, just only once for any given piece, so feel free to browse the other art and vote for other pieces you like as well.
