Recently I created an original piece and entered it into the Austin Art Boards competition. Ten winners were selected to have their art enlarged and displayed on giant billboards around town. A couple hundred people entered, and although I wasn't one of the ten who won, I was selected with a small group of "honorable mentions."
Here are the winners:

And here is the piece that I entered:

Like everyone who entered the contest, I would have absolutely been thrilled to have my art displayed in a large scale format for the whole city to see. But I am also happy to say congrats to the artists who did win! There is always next year to try again...
