From now on I will be DDing high quality artworks that are not limited to Abstract and Surreal anymore from the following categories:
- Digital Art
- Traditional Art.
Do not send the same suggestion to multiple people, as it causes great confusion. Please suggest to only ONE person.
There is a "6-month rule," which means an artist cannot receive another DD if they have had one in the last 6 months. There is no current way for suggesters to check this but we can let you know.
If you disagree with a DD and feel the need to voice your opinion, avoid leaving unpleasant comments on the artist's page. Send me a note and/or to Moonbeam13 instead.
Self DD Suggestions are accepted.
Accepted DD Suggestions that are part of an ongoing contest will be featured after the contest is over.
Please help me find you by using at the very least the hashtags #digitalart, #photography, and/or #traditionalart for your pieces!
I am taking DD Suggestions from the following Topics:
Please send me one note per artist you are suggesting, this helps me stay organized.
Please let me know if you want to remain anonymous as a suggester; if you do not specify I will assume that you want your name listed on the DD.
Send each of your suggestions to only ONE Community Volunteer!
I am always looking to help expose under appreciated artists so I do favor artists who have not had prior DDs or have very little attention when possible. However, this does not mean that I will not consider art from more popular artists as well.
I prefer to feature more recent pieces from artists in order to help showcase the artists talent at their current level.
Sometimes I believe a piece other than the one suggested from the artist would make a better DD. If you are okay with me listing you as the suggester even if I choose to feature a different
So...on this 3 year anniversary of my last journal post I thought I'd update this thing with all the goings on since the last time I wrote. It's funny I use to write in my journal quite frequently but that time is not longer. Mostly due to the fact that I have too many distractions these day that writing in this journal isn't a priority. Anyway, enough bemoaning the lack of journals for 3 years.
What's been happening? Lots actually.
As the kids are getting older life evolves in fantastic ways. The kids are getting bigger and growing so fast you wonder where the time goes. It's wondrous to see their interest in things and the art I
I was a bit surprised yesterday with getting a Daily Deviation for Smoldering:
I usually try to thank everyone for the :+fav:'s and I'm going to attempt it eventually, but for now I want to say a general: Thank you so much for all the favs and +watches!
Would also like to thank OfOneSoul (https://www.deviantart.com/ofonesoul) for suggesting it and jempavia (https://www.deviantart.com/jempavia) for featuring my painting.
So I've been a very busy boy of late in a way. In August, I had a small show up at a local library that is really friendly to local artists. I had my work up there for the whole month and had 6 original paintings sold during the run and 1 that was sold a week afterwards as a result! Pretty amazed by that and the library was so thrilled with the success that I'm booked for the next 2 years there, August 2016 and 2017. Happy times!
So riding high on that success I decided to enter another art show, this time being held at my Alma mater. It's a group show for the art alumni, not a solo show. I put two paintings up that didn't sell, figuring why
