The Secret to Happiness

KELLY_ANGELOVIC_Follow Your Joy "I partly grew up on a ranch, and it reminds me of the days when we would ride far out afield on horses--it was funny because if you were on a horse alone, sometimes it could be a pain to get that horse to go. But if we had a bunch together, they were always champing at the bit to race each other--I loved their wild power and beauty. I get that same feeling here--of wild, chaotic momentum, drawing each other forward into the game."

A lyrical analogy (made by Tanith Larking, Sweet Dreamy Designs) about Lilla Rogers' Make Art That Sells classes--and one of the driving reasons so many of us keep coming back for more.

This week, I was awarded an honorable mention in Lilla's alumni manifesto competition with my piece, "Follow Your Joy." Yippee! You can see the (well deserved) winning piece (created by Shannon Newlin), as well as the three other pieces that garnered an honorable mention below.

I am honored and inspired to be included amid such talent.
