Arts and Entertainment February Challenge!

To All Blogville Residents and Beyond:

This is an invitation for all Blogville residents to  create a self pawtrait.  If you take the challenge you will produce a work of art in which you are the subject.  All pawticipants will  send me your masterpiece and I will place them on permanent display on the Blogville Arts and Entertainment website. If you pawticipate you will be awarded a special artistic badge and there will be a link from your entry on the website  to your blog.
