By now you know I love Jennifer Mercede and her art too. On a daily basis she lives the life of an artist more than anyone I know. Recently, she's been up to some new heights with her art (literally and figuratively actually!)...check out her 24'x 8' mural outside The Children's Museum in Grand Rapids Michigan:
Isn't it awesome?!?!?! I'm so proud of her! I know it looks like it came together so easily, but in all honesty, she's been working hard on this for months- prep and planning, let alone the bravery to even enter such a contest, and then the execution, and the video she made with her friend?!? Seriously, so excited for her.
She did all this as part of a contest, Artprize.com .
I hope if you are anywhere near the area, you'll stop by and say hi, and vote for her to win the contest!!! I wish I could. Especially because winning will help her to continue to share her art with the world in a big way. Plus, she's such a sweetheart, I know you'll love her like I do. If you are like me, and too far away to attend, you can help by spreading the word, you never know who might make a difference. I know she'd appreciate it, and so would I. After all, we're all in this together, pursuing a creative life and supporting others in doing so, right?
Jennifer, so, so proud of you!!! Congratulations!!! You are already the big winner in my book!!! xoxoxo
