Artistic Gratification

(Note: Click on an image for a larger view)

It's always a gratifying experience when one's work is appreciated and recognized by others. It is all the more gratifying when that acknowledgement comes from one's peers. In a posting this past December, I mentioned my renewed focus on creating digital art that centered around images of feminine power. Serif Inc., the company that developed the graphics software I use to create these images, sponsors a monthly contest for users of its products. I was just notified by the company that I was chosen the winner for February 2008. The winning piece, entitled "Radiant Energy" appears here. You can see a larger version on the Serif website here through the month of February 2008. It would seem I am finally tapping into my own feminine power. Onward and upwards.

Ballo ergo sum,
Always and all ways,
