    Good evening, my name is Yelitza Maldonado. I previously had entered the Paint the Town competition and I had seen that there is another one called Art Faire. I was reading into it and trying to understand what exactly was supposed to be submitted, I felt confused because I wasn’t sure what exactly you are looking for. Can it be any abstract painting we are working on? Or does it have to fit a certain theme. I understood that it will be judged upon a panel of judges and the best will be hung up but I just don’t understand what the painting is supposed to be about. If you could get back to me soon I would really appreciate it!

    Please & Thanks!
