Have I mentioned yet that my art has gone international? It has!
I mean besides this blog, LinkedIn & Facebook. We’re talkin’ actual, physical, matted and framed pieces of art.
These 2 pieces were chosen in a juried contest and are currently spending time in LaPaz, Mexico. (if you follow me on Facebook, you already know this since I posted about it when it happened. But it’s still pretty exciting, really!)
I’m pretty proud of their travel, although a bit envious that they are somewhere I’ve not yet been! (geez!)
(why yes, I do have similar prints for sale thanks-for-asking! click on the links at the bottom of the post for more info)
Part of me being an artist is to enter contests and competitions. I try to enter 4–6 juried competitions per year in addition to open contests. And, while I do love the recognition when I do well, I also do it to keep improving my skills and techniques. I’ve said before, I prefer to do very little ‘work’ on the computer other than cropping (and adding watermarks/text)
The more I practice and enter/get feedback from juried competitions, the better I am behind the lens.
I admit it! Actually being out in nature taking photographs ~ whether it be of a wedding, engagement, sporting event or nature itself (mountains, beach, ocean, forest) or animals (a 17 pound white cat comes to mind… hehe!) ~ is a lot more fun (there’s that word again!) than sitting at a computer.
Have a great rest of your Monday! If you’re looking for me, I’m outside… behind the lens.
