Painting Prizepool

This collection of paintings form a pool from which prizes can be chosen in one of the frequent giveaway competitions I run here on Bicyclistic.

Scroll down to see the latest competition. To keep informed of the free painting giveways, follow this blog by feed, subscribe to updates by email, or follow me on Twitter

I intend to add to the pool on an ongoing basis, but as the paintings are also for sale, the pool could get smaller too.

  1. Sara says:

    Based on your current prices and sold items, I’m gonna go with $1145. Not including shipping.

  2. american_eejit says:

    $1165.00. i hope.

  3. E gan F says:

    You’re correct to exclude shipping Sara - I should have stressed that. Thanks for playing - at the moment you’re in the lead!

  4. Nuke says:

    Dang, have not been following the site long enough to make an educated guess. After a little investigation, I will go with the tried and true “Let’s Make a Deal” method. $1146!

  5. [...] another chance to get a painting of mine for free, some of them are even Irish, like [...]

  6. Aw shite! I didn’t read it right. $555 if I’m allowed a second go.

    [editor's note: Primal, I allowed your change because it was made before anybody else submitted a guess - and if I'd had a decent plugin you could've amended it yourself. /note]

  7. Spyder says:

    My guess: $ 285

  8. Gil says:

    Ohhhhhhh…I’ll guess, $1100.00.

  9. Forbairt says:

    Hey I still say to let it run till monday ( US time in the afternoon so more followers have a chance to win ) :)

    Using my impressive logic from the last competition I’m going to have to go with a 1 followed by a 2 … and so on … so I’ll say

    $1234 :D

  10. elly parker says:

    I haven’t seen all your painting sales, but I didn’t think you charged that much, so I’m going with $800.

  11. martha says:

    I think it’s $1324. But I don’t add very well, and I’m not actually sure that ?????? sold.

    [edit: Martha, I decided to remove your reference to a specific painting to be fair to the earlier guessers, and to yourself /edit]

  12. Jennifer says:

    I just sat here upping your stat counter insanely cause I want a painting, dangit. But my answer was already taken, $1165. *sigh* rotten luck. ah well. if I was affluent, you would have a bunch more sold.
    I don’t suppose you can make prints of Rubber tree, eh? How do I narrow down how many I would want though, really.

  13. E gan F says:

    Jennifer, I’ll have a look to see what I have for Rubber Plant in terms of the quality high definition photos needed to produce a print. Off hand I don’t know - and so much of my paperwork is still in boxes that I need to unpack into filing cabinets. On the other matter, unless you’re 100% sure the one you can’t submit is correct you could always submit a different answer.

  14. Markham says:

    Ursula Halligan.

    Sorry, what was the question?

  15. E gan F says:

    Markham, it would be the question in the post.

  16. Trev says:

    I’ll guess $3,800


  17. $1250 - I’m right aren’t I :)

  18. Eddie Roche says:

    I’m gonna say $1199
