  19. Hello. Thank you for the opportunity to win a free spot onto Ever After. I haven’t participated before but I’m looking forward to it this year. I’m looking forward to hearing from artists as they discuss how they develop a art piece from idea through painting it, including why and how they decide on elements to enhance the story. Have a great day.
