Blog Rules

Open Letter to All Contributors
Letter to new contributing artists at Paper, Paint, Pencils & Pens:
We are happy to have you and your art here. We are a new
blog of artists drawing together to a theme, which changes every two weeks.
If you are getting this letter you have been sent an invite
(or will soon be) and once you respond to it you will be able to post on the
blog. After your first art is posted your name will be added to the
contributing artists list on the sidebar.
To catch you up, we have very few rules, just stick to the
current theme which is on the side bar.
We do NOT use any copyrighted materials to draw from.
We draw from life or our imagination or from a photo we took ourselves or
are using with someone else’s permission.
You can if you like have your blog or web site linked to
your name in the contributors list. (email me
your URL to
and I will do this for you) after your first art is posted.
Important: ******Also we
put the name of the current theme, your name, and a
title for your piece in the title sections
of the post. And your name and theme in the label section.
You may or may not wish to put your
location in the location section of
the post. It is your choice. But it’s fun to know where people are from, as we
represent many countries, states, islands in the world.
You may if you like introduce yourself briefly in your first
post. We hope to learn more about you through your art along the way.
We are a friendly group and share comments back and forth in
response to each other’s art.
We look forward to seeing your art here. You may post as
frequently as you wish. There is no special time to post.
You may grab the button on the side bar and put it on your
own blog if you like, as well.
I think that’s it.
Happy drawing!

PS once you respond to the invite sent to you, you are ready
to post on the blog.
