My dear fellow painters!
Last week we had our 5000th original painting uploaded!
Please check out @Voy Kay's painting for this special occasion. I'm sure this being the 5000th upload is no coincidence, but the result of careful planning 😉
Thank you to you all
It is a great pleasure to see everyone uploading their paintings on here, interacting, and sharing tips. It is an even greater pleasure to read and hear about the friendships that are forming here on this website.
I've added the ability to upload originals in April 2020. The first uploaded original (not done by me) was "Japanese Lady" by @Jin7
(The ordering when viewing the originals is a bit off since you can convert Bob Ross recreations to originals, giving them a creation date even before I added the feature.
Since April 13th 2020 there are an average of 7.5 originals uploaded every day. The most uploads happed on April 30th 2020 with 26 creations!
Our top 3 contributors are
@Pietro1963: 539 paintings
@Hado Hagen: 302 paintings
@Voy Kay: 221 paintings
The two most commented originals (both with 43 comments) are "Magic Sky" by @Sunnylady and "Crimson Tide" by @Voy Kay
All in all, by the time I'm writing this there have been an astounding 19433 comments added to original uploads! WOW!
Besides these 5000 uploaded paintings, I have received 7 original creations by mail (in real life). The shortest one had to travel only around 80 km / 50 miles, while the longest journey was over 15000 km (almost 10 000 miles) long! They all have a very special place in my heart.
I hope this community will stay as nice and positive as it is. Here's to 5000 more!
I'm currently working on finishing up the tagging system for Bob Ross paintings. I think I'm only a rainy weekend away from finishing it, along with a detailed search function. If you want to get some last-minute tagging in, feel free to help! 🙂
I wish you all a great week (and if February isn't too late for these kinds of wishes) a great year 2022!
