New Paintings, Prints on Watercolor Paper and Win a Painting

257 No. 1 by Mark Altrogge

I’d like to give someone one of my paintings (that is, a beautiful Giclée duplication of one of my paintings).  Here’s how you can win: Share this post or something about my painting site on Facebook, Twitter or some other way, and tell me you’d like to enter in the comment section below.  Or if you’d like, you don’t have to post on Twitter or Facebook,  just tell me you’d like to enter in the comments below.  In one week, I’ll draw a name from all the entrants, and announce the winner.  Then I’ll contact you and you can pick the painting you’d like and I’ll send it to you.

I’ve also added 3 new paintings to my site, Mark Altrogge Paintings, and I’m now offering all of them both on acid free 100% cotton rag watercolor paper or on stretched canvas.  And I’ve LOWERED THE PRICES.

Thanks for checking out the site and for all the kind comments you’ve made since I opened it.

    I’d love to win – just shared it on facebook!

    • Mark Altrogge

      Thanks Jon!

  • Patti Simmons

    I have always admired your artwork from way back…. hate to admit how far back! Does high school count as 'way back'? I shared on FB!

    • Mark Altrogge

      Hey Patti! Thanks a lot! I guess we could say high school counts as 'way back' when you get to be our age. But I still feel like I'm around 23. And then I look in the mirror.

  • Trillia Newbell

    Don't enter me in the contest- I won a book from Stephen so I don't want to be a prize hog (ha). But I did want to say, your art work is beautiful! I shared on twitter and fb.

    • Mark Altrogge

      Hi Trillia, Thank you for your kind words and for sharing it! Hey don't worry about being a prize hog. I'll enter you…

  • Daphne S. Merritt

    I share on FB… and would love to be entered in ze drawing!

    • Daphne S. Merritt

      shared…if only i could type…guess that might not be a good thing in which to lack skill, being a secretary and all (heavy sigh)

      • MarkAltrogge

        Hey Daphne, I knew what you meant! Thanks! You're entered.

  • Paula Saylor

    I posted the link on Facebook. I would love to win one of your amazing pieces!

    • MarkAltrogge

      Thanks so much Paula!

  • Linda Quinlisk

    I love your paintings; the vibrant colors and lighting! It's interesting that your dad's greeting card painting of Yellow Creek is on our mantle for the summer. So cool that you two paint together. (I'm also tempted by the lower prices :) Thanks for posting them for us to admire.

    • MarkAltrogge

      Thank you Linda! I am blessed to be able to paint with Dad. Maybe you'll win one…

      • Linda Quinlisk

        Maybe you could do something about that…

        • Mark Altrogge

          I hope you win, Linda, but I have to be fair and square…

          • Linda Quinlisk

            it was a joke ;) I knew you'd be totally fair.

  • lisa

    Done and done. Proud of you, Mark!

    • MarkAltrogge

      Thanks so much Lisa!

  • Dot Montague

    I love your stuff Mark! Posted before & posted again! Would love to win one!

    • MarkAltrogge

      Thanks Dot! I appreciate it. Who knows, maybe you'll win!

  • Chris in NM

    I tweeted, and would love to enter the drawing. Thanks!

    • MarkAltrogge

      Thanks Chris! You're entered.

  • Lisa Houp

    I'd love to be entered to win a painting, but I'm ancient in the ways of technology and am not on Facebook and have no idea how to "Twitter." Can I be entered if I just say I love your paintings and can't afford to buy one right now? (as an aside, thanks, too for the great blog…some of the posts lately have really ministered to me!)

    • MarkAltrogge

      Hi Lisa, of course you can enter! And thanks for your kind words. You're entered.

  • JackW

    I FB this and told some blogger friends. Think you could spare some of that talent?

    When Challies picks this up …

    • MarkAltrogge

      Hi Jack, my talents don't have much practical use… I'll trade you some of mine if you can give me some talent in planning, home maintenance, and maybe a little bit of athletic ability. Oh, and I wouldn't mind a little bit of talent in car maintenance too. Thanks for sharing it. You're entered.

  • Pastor Dave Bissett

    nice work — I would love to win one. db

  • Jill Luna

    I'd really like to win one (actually, more than one-haha) of your paintings. Even if I don't, they are all very pretty.

  • Renee

  • Katie D.

    Ooh I would love to win – your paintings are beautiful!

  • Mark Altrogge

    Thanks you guys! You're all entered.

  • Bryan Peters

    Mark hope it is not too late to enter, have mercy on us west coasters!!! Thanks for the blog, it blesses us in more ways than you know. Peace be with you today brother. Thanks

    • Mark Altrogge

      Not too late Bryan, I'm taking entries all week. Thanks so much and thanks for your kind words!

  • Vince

    Hey Mark
    I don't really want to enter your competition, cos I'd rather buy a painting from you, but as I have said before, the state of the economy and all, means it will take ages to save up (even though you've lowered the prices). Anyways,,, pleeeease can I enter? :-)
    Will you deliver to the UK? In person?

    • Mark Altrogge

      Hey Vince, you're entered buddy. I'll deliver it if you win. Maybe I'll bring it myself and you can get me some fish and chips.

  • @lidialimardo
