It has been quite a few months ago that I entered A Global Talent Search contest through Lilla Rogers Art Agency. The assignment was to create a piece of art with the subject being a Terrarium. There were so many wonderful and amazing entries! My first attempt felt a little too realistic, so I made another piece that matched the style I liked better. I added an imaginary giraffe and hippo with one of my favorites...a little, yellow bird. Even though I didn't make the cut, I tried and pushed myself on a subject matter I never would have painted on my own. Take a moment to enjoy some of the terrariums on I used as inspiration.
