"Metroflux Core" wins my name the painting contest!
September 21, 2016
Wow. That was quite a ride!
This has been the contest that keeps on contesting.
What happened, in a nutshell, for those who missed it, is that I announced my Name the Painting contest back in June.
I announced the contest across all my social media and my website newsletter. I didn't have this blog up and running at the time. The painting image was posted on all the media and people were invited to send their entries in during the entire month of June.
So that was great. I didn't really flog the contest except for the first announcement and some tweets on twitter. But these got a lot of retweets so overall, no surprise that there were a lot of entries.
Anyway, I picked the winner and attempted to contact her by all conceivable methods. It turned out she entered on Facebook and I guess hasn't been spending any time there of late.
Then I decided ok maybe she was away during the summer or something like that, so I gave it a couple of more extra weeks.
Now, I cannot postpone this any longer! Someone needs to win this painting!!!
So, along with my illustrious "panel" of painting name experts, (hey, someone must have learned something coming up with 4000 + names for all my sold paintings over the years!) we decided to go with one of the original finalists:
A truly awesome name! We almost made it the winner in the first place, so maybe it was meant to be! I actually googled the name back when we were looking at it in case it was the name of a game or something like that!
But I think the name is completely original, that is except for some sort of center in Houston called "Metroplex Core" - quite similar but very different.
