Contest Finalists – Swirls & Twirls

January 15th, 2012 by Nikki Smith

Sweet!  It’s nice to check my inbox and see an uplifting message amidst all of my junk mail.  This morning I learned that two of my images tied for third place in a competition at Fine Art America.  How cool!  Without further ado, here they are:

The theme of the competition was “Swirls and Twirls.” My favorite piece by a different artist in the competition is this one:

Here is what the contest administrator had to say: “Congrats to you all! Beautiful images! We had 16 pages of entries…AMAZING! Everythig, and I am so serious, everything…was so neat and beautiful and different. What a talanted group of artists! Thank you all so much of taking part in it!”

This is a good way to start the day… 🙂

UPDATE: I just found out that my wee planet will be published in the Sept/Oct issue of Cloth Paper Scissors!  Yippee!  Happy Dance!

I was thrilled to hear that my latest “Wee Planet” creation was named a finalist in the 2012 Cloth Paper Scissors calendar contest, “On the Street Where You Live”!

Although I’m a bit bummed that I didn’t win (I’ll be honest), this has inspired me to create more artwork for competitions and challenges throughout this year. Congrats to the winners!

Since I always love seeing the “before, during and after” of how artists create their lovelies, I’ll add a “The Making Of…” post soon, so stay tuned!
