Painting Giveaway #9: How Many Sheep & Birds
There’s an exhibition of my paintings in Galway this weekend at the 2010 Irish Blog Awards. You can have a free original painting of your choice from the prizepool if you tell me what number you get if you add the number of sheep and the number of birds that will feature in paintings exhibited.
It’s not a trick question. As a fan of mathematics I know you can’t add sheep and birds, but you can add numbers so if I exhibit 2 birds and 1 sheep the answer is 3.
And I’ll give you a clue - I don’t even know at this stage.
We won’t know the answer until Saturday (though I’ll probably know on Friday!) so I’ll keep the competition open until I hang the paintings.
The 1st person to leave a comment telling me the correct number, or the person closest if nobody gets it, wins. (NOTE: If you’re reading this post on FaceBook you need to go HERE to leave your answer)
Just one guess each please. In the event of a tie the earliest submitted answer wins.
The the prizepool was extended up to 21 paintings today. They’re also for sale so it’s possible you could have a choice of less than 21 when the competition closes. (I’ve kept today’s 5 new additions at half-price until the competition ends).
Usually I leave the guesses in moderation to add to the suspense, but for this competition I’ll approve them as they come in so you can choose a number nobody else has.
I’d appreciate it if you spread the competition by blog post, tweet, facebook etc. Good Luck!
UPDATE - Numbers taken so far:
3, 7, 8, 11, 12, 15, 17, 19, 20, 21, 23, 25, 26, 27, 29, 30, 33, 36, 39, 42, 43, 47, 49, 54, 56, 60, 63, 68, 77, 112, 121, 198
