So I heard about this art contest recently through Arts Obispo, our local arts council. It’s one of those “anything goes” competitions, to which I responded with, “why not? Worth a try.” The competition deadline has been extended to the end of this month, so if you have something you’d like to enter, go for it!
It’s been fun clicking on different pieces of art that have been submitted to see what other people are doing. There are some TALENTED people out there. Here are a few that I thought were pretty incredible (and I’m sure new work is being added, even as I write this post!). Just click on the image to learn more about the artists:
As you can see, there’s DEFINITELY some competition. But there’s always going to be someone quicker, smarter, funnier, prettier, etc.. Amen? As hard as it is to just PUT YOUR STUFF OUT THERE, I guess you have to start somewhere. It’s also helpful to look at the work of others for new technique ideas or just for general inspiration. And I hope that, you, in whatever realm you’re seeking inspiration today, might find it.
