Another Art Contest Opportunity – My Entries

In the past couple months I have actually entered art into 3 different art contests/exhibitions. I already shared the art I submitted to the contest I placed in last year, but thought I would share a few artworks I submitted for a brand new contest. This contest will be choosing a variety of artworks that will be exhibited in New York and Oregon, and will be used to produce derivative products based on the selected art. If my art is chosen, I will get a 25% royalty on all products sold with my design, plus whatever the art sells for at exhibit.

I tried to pick a variety of my recent artwork to submit. I decided to go with this cute wolf portrait:

#1

A nice abstract design:

#2

And something a little inspirational and personal:

#3

I hope they pick at least one of my pieces for their exhibits!

Music Themed Art Contest – My Final Picks for Submission

I wrote a post the other day about my anxiety over entering an art contest I placed in last year, well, I went ahead and chose my three pieces to submit and thought I would show you guys the ones that made the cut. Here are the three I made that I submitted to the contest:

MarandaRussell_Synesthesia_2.5x3.5inches
Oil pastel, 2.5″ x 3.5″, Synesthesia (the contest theme is officially “music and synesthesia” this piece illustrates synesthesia, in this case, the ability to “see” color when you hear music notes).

MarandaRussell_FeeltheMusic_9x12inches
Oil pastel, 9″ x 12″, Feel the Music

MarandaRussell_SoundStorm_8x8inches
Acrylic/Gouache painting, 8″ x 8″, Sound Storm

I also made this fourth painting, but could only submit 3 pieces to the contest, so I ended up listing this one for sale on my Ebay store:

Experimental Gel Pen ACEO Abstract Art

For these three artworks, I dusted off the group of 48 gel pens my husband got me for Christmas and decided to just be intuitive and see where I would end up. I like the result of these abstract expressionistic artworks and hope you do too:
