Hey there, everyone!

I've done my first painting and I would like you to take a look at it . http://www.homeofpoi.com/competition/view_all_entries.php/21_489 (you can vote here. Just push the red "Place a vote for this entry" button)

The picture shows a girl spinning green flame poi (there actually are green flames by the way) in a cave (everything's imaginary, I didn't have any reference photos at all). It's hard to explain what poi is - you just need to see it. So here are a few example videos - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ehDAI_mWHYc , http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hZ5UXFRWGeQ. Poi's can be any weight on some cord, or chains. The most popular are fire poi, LED (glow) poi, sock poi (for practice). So that's what I'm learning now. I'm a beginner though. Unfortunately, I don't have any videos of myself


There is a Make a Desktop background related to poi arts competition. So I've thought - I need to participate too! And the prize is US$300! I always knew that there are a lot nice people, so I thought I'd ask you to help me. http://www.homeofpoi.com/competition/view_...ries.php/21_489 - you can vote here. Just push the red "Place a vote for this entry" button. You don't need to create an account or anything.

So thank you all very much! And I would be grateful if you could ask your friends or other people to help me too. Thank you again!
