|Yay - I'm in SPECTRUM!

I'm so very happy! Spectrum is my favourite series of books - I was in Spectrum 11, but didn't get into Spectrum 12, but this morning I woke up to a message from Carrie letting me know that I'm in Spectrum 13!!! I'm so excited!!! This really really made my day. When I was younger, getting into Spectrum was one of my life's goals and I will have been in it twice now at age 26, I feel very fortunate.|
The chosen artists' names can be found here:
Some of my favourite artists are in there, it looks like it will be a wonderful book.
I don't know which picture will be in it yet - I'll let you know as soon as I do!
Also, in other juried Fantasy Art News - I was also selected to appear in the new Masters of Fantasy (volume 3!) - I was in Volume 2 which was really great (and it lead to a lot of good things for me) - the list of chosen artists' names has been posted here:
I know a lot of other artists who might read this journal probably entered both of these too, so go look at the lists of names!! Yay!!
Let me see - today I'm going to be working on a "Three Wise Faeries" painting for a special project. (Y'know, like the See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil monkeys!). Ought to be cute. I'll probably start painting in not too long - if you'd like to peek in on me you can watch me HERE on my webcam while I work!
Congratulations on Spectrum and Masters of Fantasy!
Your painting has such clarity and personality, the recognition is no surprise and well deserved!
Congrats on getting into Spectrum! You deserve the glory!
I really wanted to submit work for #13, but I put it off. There's always next year!
Yay on getting into Spectrum again!
Three Wise Faeries is a great idea for a painting. I'm looking forward to seeing it.
Thank you Annie! I'm so happy I got in this year!
Congratulations on getting into Spectrum! I know how badly you wanted that. It'll be interesting to see which painting they chose.
Thank you Chi! I sent them five paintings, I think - I have no idea which one they picked. It's funny - the judging is in Overland Park, hehe!
Congrats!!!! Don't forget to tell us when the Smallville episode airs with your art in it!
I think it is supposed to be April 6th!
Well done, congratulations Jasmine!!!!! :)
Oh, that's wonderful! Congradulations! There seems to be a really large fan base out there for fantasy art.
