Promotion #2

I will attempt to make the details cleaner or more direct.
I am looking to obtain some input that will assist me in choosing which painting I am going to have scanned to make high quality limited edition prints. These prints will be approximately 11" x 17".
So I have come up with a promotion that may give me the feedback I need.
My request:
  • Go to
  • Go to the heading "View John's Work"
  • There is a Gallery titled "Promotion" select that and view the 4 paintings
  • Choose your favorite painting of the 4
  • Send an email to with PROMOTION in the subject heading and the title of your choice in the body of the email
  • One entry per person 
  • Limit of 1000 entries total and I will end the promotion
  • By submitting an entry you are also agreeing to be on the mailing list  (I do not abuse your inbox , 1 or 2 emails per month max.) You can opt out at any time by emailing me.
  • After I tally the total number of entries I will have a drawing to select the winner
  • The winner will be notified via email
  • The winner will receive the first hand signed limited edition print, professionally framed (actual UPS packing/shipping charges may apply)
  • there is a way to receive additional entries for the drawing. Refer this promotion to your friends, family etc... and if they email me and include your email address as a referral with their selection you receive an additional entry - no cap on referrals.
  • Contact me if you have any questions.
Thank you.


Special promotion running 4/1/09 - 6/30/09.
I am looking for your input and I have decided to run a promotion/free drawing as an incentive for input.
Go to my website: or directly to the link
The bottom gallery is titled PROMOTION. Go there to view the 4 paintings to select from for this promotion.
From the selection chose the painting you feel would be the best one (the one you like the best) to reproduce for a limited run - hand signed Giclee print. I am also requesting you put a ballpark price range on such a print that would be approximately 11” x 17” on archival paper of high quality.
I will tally the result of the emails received and out of the submissions I will select from a drawing one lucky winner to receive the first hand signed print, professionally framed (UPS shipping charges may apply).
One submission per person and your entering is also your approval to be put on the email list (which I will never abuse your inbox - one two emails per month) of which you can email me to opt out at any time.
The word PROMOTION must appear in the subject header of your email.
A way to gain additional entries is to refer my site and this promotion to other people and if they include your email address on their submission I will add an additional entry under your name.
Please email me at

Any questions please contact me and refer this to as many people as you can. It will keep me up late at night calculating the results. Remember this should be fun and your input means a lot to me .
Thank you.
