Keep Trying

A few months back I was informed that Strathmore Artist Papers put a call out to the world of artists asking for new art works for their 2014 Card Art contest, so naturally I sent a few images their way. I thought why not, you gotta start some where. With fingers crossed I hoped that maybe I could be one of the luck ones to have my artwork and name on a box of blank cards, offering inspiration to others. It was just the other day I  heard back from Strathmore, it was a very nice email and the Strathmore team thanked me for my interest, etc. At the end of the wonderful letter they regretted to inform me that they did not select any of my images a winner. Bummer! You win some and you lose some, but art is subjective and the three images that were selected are really great! In the end I was and am still happy that I had put myself out there and gave it ago. I’m gonna try again next time around, because you never know when yours will be the perfect fit.  Congratulation to the three winners you all have created a wonderful work of art. To everyone like me who just went for it, Good Job! Way to put yourself out there and see what happens.

Until next time, have a great adventure with an art supply!

Day 12 rolls into Day 13

Oh Mondays… The start of the week, and a great day to dream about all the things you’ll get done before Friday. This Monday was no exception… however with our staff shin dig last night…. I’m feeling a little slow on the up take. Not to mention that I have other projects that take precedence over my challenge to do a creation a day.  So here we go.

Day 12 – A late night sketch as it was worked on after the above mentioned staff party. So I wanted to photo doc it this morning… and well after last nights wind storm, lucky me, no internet connection. lol Yep Monday started out just as it should, full of surprises. Day 12
Day 13 has been interrupted because another projects need my attention. Handmade Cards, and new sketchbooks need to be made. So I just got an out line of what I want started and will get back to it later tonight.Day 13

 

These are the cards I’m working on right now, a frank Lloyd Wright concept. These cards have been a lot of fun so far, and I have about 40 to do. I’ll post images of the books when they are finished. But these are some of the other projects that I get up to outside of the one a day challenge.

Side ProjectHave a very Wonderful Week!
