Day 1 of the 10 Day Art Challenge
A group of my artist friends have been participating in a 10 day Art Challenge on Facebook. The purpose is to promote positivity, passion, and attention to art.
I was nominated by Leslie Ready to show one image of my art, my life, my studio, or exhibition for 10 consecutive days. The rules were that no explanation was to be given. You were also to nominate another Artist every day to do the same. So basically 10 days. 10 images, 10 nominations.
On the first day I posted a picture of the bracelet I entered in the Arizona State Fair a few years ago. It was the first (and so far only) time I have entered a juried contest. I was accepted, but I didn't win any prize. But my husband and I got to go to an Artist's Reception with my friend Leslie and her husband, both of whom had entered and won awards for their art. It was very exciting and a fun night.
My entry for Day 2 was my Owl Cell Phone Purse. The feather came from a Great Horned Owl that had been living in another friend's tree and frequently dropped feathers on the ground. I was taking a class on color, and the first assignment was to make something using neutral colors. I had the little owl face in my stash and the feather, too. I modified a Simplicity pattern to make the little purse.
