I don't know how to share social media posts on the forum, but here's a screenshot if you can't view the link for some reason:
Is anyone else going to enter? I just finished up my entry and posted it. I sort of did a song painting, where I tried to paint some of the imagery that I get from the song. It's a tiny painting, only 4"x4", acrylics with a Swarovski crystal on canvas. I used regular, metallic, and glitter acrylics. Unfortunately you can't get the full effect from a photo. Anyway, the bird is a songbird, a yellow warbler, because I thought that would tie in well with the song on the album of the same name.
They didn't exactly specify how they choose the winner... I don't know whether it's their favorite entry, or a raffle draw of all the participants? There's also no deadline listed, so I just made mine as quickly as possible! Anyway, best of luck to anyone else who is entering!
Grroosss Thanks! I was thinking it took me too long, haha! I was working on that tiny thing until 2am last night, because I kept seeing more things wrong with it. I don't usually work that quickly in general (I typically break it up over several days because I need extra time to spot/fix mistakes), but I guess I had the right motivation.
Ah, but most people probably haven't had time to make something yet, either. I probably wouldn't have had time if I hadn't missed work yesterday because of car trouble.
I hope you two are able to work something out, I didn't realize you were so far apart at the moment! You will have to let us know if you are able to get an entry in, good luck!
Yes BIuebird your painting is absolutely stunning!! Grroosss is right, the entries I have seen on Instagram have mostly been photoshop collages, so I think yours will stand out As for the distance yes she is at college right now in Nevada and I’m finishing up my senior year of high school in California still, making it a bit hard to do any joint art...as is my usual, I have a great-sounding idea in my head that I have no ability to execute and probably only works out in my head, not on paper...
This is my proposal, with a nod to "OUT OF THE BLUE", where, in addition to seeing a spacecraft that exists deep in a sea, in a place on our planet, you can see a couple of "astronauts" on the outside of the same...
Hey all, I don't really use Twitter, but I looked up the official Jeff Lynne's ELO twitter page just to peek at some of the other entries. It seems they have posted a deadline there, 5pm ET on October the 21st.

Horacewimp: We are all good thanks, just wishing I could go on a foreign holiday, it’s just not worth the risk with Covid and the possibility of a 14 day quarantine, we may do some short breaks in the U.K.
