Global Talent Search Semi-Finalist!

Global Talent Search Semi-Finalist!

Good morning!

I am in a state of shock right now, because my piece was chosen to be in the top 50 for Lilla Rogers’ Global Talent Search!  What an amazing opportunity!  I took Make Art That Sells parts A and B, as well as Bootcamp, over the past year, and I have grown an incredible amount.

I feel a little bit like a kid on Christmas morning!  There were so many beautiful pieces of art that were submitted.  I don’t know how they narrowed it down from 999 to just 50.

These are some of the beginnings of this piece.  I scanned the best ones, along with some background paintings, to create my artwork. (I was also working on some custom Michigan artwork at the time, so there are some other random things thrown on these pages, too!)

I also have another version of my terrarium art, which I didn’t like as much as the one I submitted:

I submitted my final piece early in the week, because I was super busy with the store and Polka Dot Mitten, and I wanted to make sure I got my assignment done.  This is the one I submitted:

I also created several other pieces from my main piece:

I’m really nervous about the next round, but also very excited to get started on the assignment!  Hope you’ll all follow along on this journey!
