already 2017...

Hey! It's already the end of January 2017!
Doesn't time fly?
I have to admit I have not been up to scratch with my blog posts. Last one was in November. 
So before the month is out, I had to write a post and make sure I post at least once a month here.
Another commitment. Seems like the whole beginning of each year is nothing but new commitments. Does it feel like that to you too?
To keep you up to date with the previous post, NO, my work was not selected for Muddy Colors Rising Stars, nor for IBA5... It was a bit disappointing, but I can clearly see that I'm not "there" yet.
The selected pieces of both events are just so many notches above what I presented... No choice but to knuckle down and work, learn, persevere. 

On another subject I have just created a Twitch account. You can now see me working live in my studio. Do join me if you want to see the work in progress on the latest pieces!
Here is a piece I've been working on today

Muddy Colors Rising Star 2016 Submissions

challenge, the journeyVictoria SuppanComment

The wonderfully inspiring blog Muddy Colors has recently posted a call for entries for the Rising Stars 2016
Three emerging artists will be chosen to show their work at the next SFAL in Kansas City.
Well, that is a great opportunity and I decided to try to finish a piece that would (hopefully) stand out and be of better quality than anything I had done up until now. Challenging.
After many thumbnails, sketches, composition tweaks, choice of medium (I am planing a longer post on the creation process of this piece) I came up this.
For me, this is a bit of a breakthrough piece as it is the first for a story I am working on and in a very challenging style.
But no colour - I am still not comfortable with colour...

The submission deadline is on November 31st and the participants are asked to send in three "different works that you think represent you as an artist".
I added these two older pieces that I find to fit with the style of the main piece.

Thanks for taking a look at my post. I will keep you updated on results of the call for entries.
