Global Talent Search

I uploaded my terrarium artwork for the Lilla Rogers Global Talent Search today!  It’s not due until next Monday, but we were encouraged to upload early.  So I worked ALL weekend on my assignment… I could have tweaked it and added to it forever, but I have a lot of work to do this week, so I decided to go with it today!  I really love how it turned out.  There are so many people in the competition that I’m fairly certain that I won’t be chosen.  But at least I had fun making it, and now I have a great new addition to my collection!  I will be able to make numerous coordinating pieces of artwork with all the icons and patterns I put into my one submission.  Can’t wait to share it with...
A Glass of Wine and A Little Sunshine

A Glass of Wine and A Little Sunshine

Our final assignment for Lilla Rogers’ Bootcamp was to draw beverages in our style.  We couldn’t post our work to the Facebook group all month so that we would stay true to ourselves.  I did my assignment with my handwriting as the main focus, since that is what I’m best at doing. It’s live in the bootcamp gallery so head over there and check out everyone’s take on the July...
June MATS Bootcamp Assignment

June MATS Bootcamp Assignment

    It was another nautical-inspired month for Make Art that Sells!  The June gallery will go live in a little over a week, but here is a preview of my art.  Some day, I would love to be a licensed artist!  I know I can make small prints of this and sell it, but I’d love to see this piece a lot...
In a nautical phase!

In a nautical phase!

I’ve had a really, really bad week.  (as if enough sad things haven’t already happened in 2014!  January, for one example).   I won’t go into details, but two very trying things happened within 6 days of each other.  I have said so many prayers of thanks that everyone is OK.  I’m trying to keep in mind that everything happens for a reason, and even though we may not know that reason right now, some day it will all make sense.  For some reason, the universe is telling my family not to run a 5k.   That leaves me hoping and praying for an uneventful, normal summer. I am taking two art classes right now – Bootcamp from Lilla Rogers is still going on, and I’m also taking Daring Adventures in Collage from Mati Rose.  Bootcamp Mini for the week was to sketch a ship in a bottle.  For collage, we had to make a creature collage.  So I sort of combined the two.  There is no bottle in my collage, but there’s a sailboat.  And a whale!  I am really liking whales right now!...
Final Week of Art Class

Final Week of Art Class

I just wrapped up Make Art that Sells class!  Our final assignment was to design party plates & napkins.  Lilla reviewed mine, and suggested it would also be good for wall art and that I should make a series of 4!  I’m going to miss this class… Bootcamp still continues through July, though. And I just signed up for “Daring Adventures in Collage” with Mati Rose in June!  I’m excited to keep learning and growing my...
