Hi and Welcome to my place on Red Bubble. / Degas said, Art is not what you see but what you make others see and it is my hope to create...

DeeZ 5Cs Awards Showcase

It was a lovely surprise to come back after a hectic weekend to find my work had been featured in DeeZ 5Cs Awards Showcase Member Exhibit.

The DeeZ 5C Awards are given to members who’s work meets the 5C’s Composition,Creativity,Clarity,Contrast/Colour and Commercial Appeal/Applicability…so I’m flattered and humbled considering the standard of art in the group.

It’s especially wonderful because lately I’ve had so many ideas but can’t seem to finish anything. Either I’ve lost the feel or just don’t think it’s good enough.

I know it’s just a stage, I’ve been through it before and no doubt it will haunt me again…that little self-doubt gremlin that sits on your shoulder and says “blah” to everything you do!
So many works have seen the dustbin, they were probably acceptable but I didn’t get that special feel after finishing…that magic time when you sit back and look at it and say..Wow! I did that…I really miss that feeling and hope it returns soon.

So I’m really chuffed at receiving this Award, it’s encouraging and a spur to keep going..so a big thank you to the DeeZ 5Cs Group:)
