An image of this painting will soon be gracing the labels of specialist Italian bakery products in Sydney, Australia. Special thanks to FAA and Google's search engine! When the business owner searched "Ancient Mills", my painting came up on the first page and grabbed his attention.
Hey, this thread is working again - great!
Barbara, hi and thanks very much for the congrats!
Beth, yes we've come to a mutually acceptable arrangement. Advice from the forum is very much appreciated!
Haha, Joshua - not that kind of bread - lol!
Wow Therese how proud you must be. I remember the excitement I felt when The committee for Camp Creative (summer school for the arts in Bellingen NSW) asked if the could put my painting on the cover of their brochure which went Australia wide as well as their web page for 2010.
We have so much awesomeness going on... A couple weeks ago, we were awarded "Best in Show" at DigiTech 2012 in Tallahassee, FL. We've also been nominated as "Best Illustrator" of 2011 by the Steampunk Chronicle and we'll find out on Tuesday if we won!
(Our display at DigiTech 2012)
We've also just gotten confirmation about a few more shows accepting our work, bringing our show total over 30. ^_^
Plus the two parts of MANDEM (Moco & Maize) are celebrating our 15th anniversary on May 1st!
Yesterday, I learned that I received a grant from the local arts council (Kamloops Arts Council). I am very excited as it will be used towards purchasing art supply kits for local children that are part of a charity that I am working with. We are planning to exhibit some of the pieces the children create with these kits in their own group show next year. Waiting to hear back from the two art supply companies I put donation requests into for this project as well; fingers crossed. This will be so much fun; can't wait to see what the kids come up with and to view their show :)
I got this painting accepted into the 72 Northwest Watercolor Society International Show that will be held in the Seattle Design Center in Seattle, Washington. A difficult show to get into. I was one of 80 accepted out of 400 entries.
my granddaughter has an abstract artist as artist in residence at her school this week. he kicked off the week with a slide presentation of 'famous' abstract artists.
one of my paintings was in the group and he announced my name.
so that's not the good news..the good news is that my sweetheart munchkin announced that i was her gramma!

About five weeks ago my computer started shutting off for what appeared to be no reason. Thinking it might be overheating due to the fact that I had not cleaned the dust out in 3 years I took it apart blew out the dust, put it back together and while the fans stopped going into high speed mode due to heat, it still would shut down unexpectedly. Then one morning I turned it on and the surge suppressor it was plugged into caught fire. I figured since it was ten years old it had just given up the ghost and went out and bought a ups with battery back up . Brought it home plugged it in waited 8 hours for the battery to charge, plugged in the computer and all seemed good for a few hours. Them the ups low power alarm went off telling me to shut down before the battery went dead. Humm....
Now I am a little strange, seldom have lights on in my house, except when cooking dinner now that it gets dark early , and I noticed the lights seemed dimmer and would flicker brighter and dimmer on occasion and over a few days it started getting worse. Oh great that I, the electric system in the house was screwed up and I was gonna have a huge repair bill, which the money for, have I did not. I was imagining tearing out walls to find the problem in other words panic. I sat down to think it out, got out my electrical test kit, nothing showed faulty wiring and the circuit breakers never tripped so maybe it was the power companies problem. I call them 2 days later two clowns show up put a volt meter on the system and see nothing wrong and the light and stuff in the house were good so they left. Now this was an intermittent problem and they were not gone ten minutes and the lights were flickering and the ups was singing in alarm. Arrgh my worst fears seemed to be coming true. So I went from outlet to outlet, tested my breakers , nothing . I called the power company because it seemed even worse. They came and put a monitor to watch the system for a few days.
They came back checked their device and to my great joy discovered that the problem was with them. So no big repair job for me and a big one for them. Good news and this problem may have had a good side as I cleaned out the computer and gave it a good uninterruptable power supply .
I am pleased to announce that I will be featured in the inaugural edition of new photography magazine Eye on Fine Art Photography due out in print and digital versions January 2014 for my Honorable Mention win in the Dawn of the New Year contest for my entry “Foggy Morning on Spark’s Lane”.
I just recently placed 1st...2nd....and 3rd place in the United States of America (Rhode Island) contest. The photo entitled "The Newport Bridge" took first place. "Lincoln Woods Panoramic" placed second place. And in 3rd place another panoramic entitled "The Jamestown Windmill".
I'm also pleased to announce my magazine cover created for a new photography magazine gathered a1st place win in the premiere edition of Eye on Fine Art Photography due out in print and digital versions for January, 2014.
The Premiere Issue of the monthly Eye on Fine Art Photography magazine is finally on news stands. The January edition features my First Place winning magazine cover design which I'd like to share with you right now. Inside the issue, I am also spotlighted as the artist with the winning magazine cover.
I'm quite excited (and happy!) because I sold my first canvas print here at FAA! Just when I was thinking that I need to spend more time uploading work here. So I feel very encouraged. And did I mention I'm happy?
On Thursday, I went to a national office supply chain to get a cd drive (my new HP Touchsmart doesn't have one) and a 32gb flash drive for transferring files. It wasn't until I came home and checked the receipt that I realized I got the flash drive for nothing. The cashier didn't ring it up.
Today (Friday) I went to the mall and parked near JC Penney's. On the way back out I thought "I should check to see if they have my purse here" because mine fell apart after only 6 months. I found it, went to the register and the $39 bag rang up at $9.99. I got a second one.
Might not be art related, but since I'm not selling much anyway, saving $82 in two days works for me!
My cover design entitled "Love is in the Air" - for the February issue of Eye on Fine Art Photography Magazine - took First Place in the recent Juried competition. My winning cover is one of two winning covers that will be featured for the February digital and print versions of the new magazine.
My cover design for the January premiere issue also took First Place.
I'm glad to hear of everyone's success! No matter how small it may seem, it is important to stay encouraged, I'll take small as well as large! I'm very encouraged, I just started Pinterest yesterday, it's been 24 hours and I have one follower. I have gotten several views in my FAA gallery on all of the prints I have pinned that are mixed on the boards with interior images.
I want to give visitors a view of what art looks like in interior spaces. My goal is to have good looking boards that are somewhat color coordinated, I've even deleted some of my own work if it didn't coordinate with nearby images to try and get people excited about art in their living spaces. Should anyone be interested here is my Pinterest location:
I don't know my web address there, my name is Suzanne Powers but I think there is another person by that name, so I'm not sure if you can choose.
One of my silly little paintings I made at a painting party (a monthly-ish get together I host) sold when I uploaded it to share on FB.
When I brought it in to work to give it to the buyer, the Designer of the show I work on saw it, loved it, and put it on set (as a child's painting - but whatever).
In July or August, millions of people are going to see my little painting! :D
