Move Over Hallmark! Holiday Card Contest Winner Announced!!!

2011 American Artist holiday e-card featuring the acrylic painting, Boxing Day, by Alan Bateman.

I want to thank all of you for all the wonderful entries for this year's Move Over Hallmark! Holiday Card Contest.

Who needs to go buy a holiday card from a drug store when you're as creative as, well, all of you! You all have helped us celebrate the holiday season at Artist Daily and American Artist magazine by creating your own holiday "card" (or cards!) and one of them has become our holiday eCard, which we will send out to all of our professional contacts and friends in the arts community and at Interweave, our parent company, this holiday season.

And without further ado, let me congratulate Alan Bateman, whose acrylic painting, Boxing Day, is our 2011 holiday e-card. This painting was inspired by a sleigh ride over the snow-covered rolling hills of Nova Scotia. Congratulations, Alan, and thank you! Your art has made our holiday season complete!

  1. Beautiful painting! After I discovered watercolor paper cards – that’s practically all I paint! It’s a great way to send a little more than a card and an original painting to boot! Thanks for this great article!
