Painting Giveaway #3

The first correct answer (left as comment on this post), or the earliest closest if nobody gets it right, wins their choice of painting from the prizepool of paintings. I think there’s 14 paintings in there now and I intend to add to it during this competition, but it’s a busy week - which brings me to the question…

Q. On Saturday at the 2009 Irish Blog Awards in the Cork International Airport Hotel, there is an exhibition of my paintings. How many paintings will I exhibit?

1. I don’t know the answer, and won’t until Friday
2. Previous winners are allowed to play
3. Damien Mulley is not allowed to play
4. I’ll leave this open all week, closing it on Friday evening before the hang
5. Just 1 guess per person allowed, and anything else that’s common sense
6. I’ll be working on paintings for the show until Thursday or, ahem, Friday

UPDATE: And the answer is…

  4. martha says:

    My guess would be,”As many as they’ll let you & have room for.” Do you still have my address for shipping purposes?

    I looked at the art of the folks you linked to in your previous post—the artists who have exhibited there before. You’re in good company there, Eolai!

  5. E gan F says:

    Martha, the issue might be more whether the paintings exist by then :)

    I don’t thrwo things away, so I’ll have your address somewhere. It’s not a week for looking though - I can confirm next week.

  6. Scaul says:

    I think it will be a lucky 13. Good luck with the exhibition ;-)

  7. nuke says:

    Hmm, I don’t know enough about the show. I will say 11. I figure it is a good compromise between my guess for a multi-artist show VS a one-man show.

  8. Oh, I dunno. 20, I reckon.

  9. debbie says:

    Was going to say 20, but somebody got there. Don’t like the number 19 (dunno why) so I’ll say 21.

  10. Susieqhw says:

    11 ?

  11. E gan F says:

    Susieqhw - 11 was guessed earlier by Nuke. Do you want to pick a different number?

  12. Susieqhw says:

    me again, will go for an even 14..

  13. CapallGlas says:

    Good luck with the blog awards, and as the number 19 is unloved, I shall choose it.

  14. Patricia says:

    17. I’m feelin’ it.

  15. I’m going to guess 8

  16. Will Knott says:

    I’ll take 10 if its still available

  17. Gerry Hanratty says:

    23 has to be!

  18. Swearing Gent says:

    Hmmmmmnnnn…how many can you fit on the back of the bike?
    I’ll chance 30.

  19. DDUK says:

    My guess is 7.
    Loving the updates too!

  20. Sara says:

    Most of the most likely numbers are taken…so I suppose I’ll have to take 6 because it hasn’t been taken yet. So. 6. Though it seems like a low number.

  21. martha says:

    27, so.
