Art and Expectations

Sometimes I try and convince myself not to expect to have my art noticed in a completion, that way I won't be disappointed. But on the other hand I believe you could 'speak those things that are not, as though they are'. Some call it the power of positive thinking. I know just believing doesn't exactly make it so, but I also believe there is power in believing.

I've been taking a class called Awake by Sebastian Michaels. It's been ongoing for 2 1/2 years now and it really has made a difference in my art and how and what I do about it these days.

But the point of this whole post is to say that I've recently entered 2 mobile competitions and made it into both. (The second one hasn't gone public yet.) But today Greenwich Workshop announced their top 25 on Instagram and this piece made it in. There will be 10 winners and to get there YOU the public have to vote me in. I don't mean to beg for votes (in fact I wish they would choose.) but if you are so inclined I would love a vote for 'The Shovel'. GreenwichVote
And you have a chance to win a print of the photo you voted for!


  1. I remember loving this image the first time I saw it. It has the feeling of a lovely vintage painting. Good luck in the competition!

  2. Good luck, I just voted for you.

  3. Just voted for your beautiful piece Roxi!

  4. Beautiful piece, so dreamy. Just voted for you. Good luck!

    How come I never 'met' you? I've been in 'Awake' since its beginnings, too :)


I read and appreciate all your comments. Have a blessed day!
