A Square Kick

A Square Kick

I posted a couple of months ago about being Minted, a fortunate series of events that led to my first art print sale on Minted.com. Since then I've racked up nearly 50 orders for Golden Gait and plenty of motivation to produce more work.

Apart from my occasional Instagram, I've not dabbled much in photography of the square format. But with a call for entries in a variety of crops, square included, these Minted challenges have encouraged me to look at my image library in a new way. You could say I'm on a square kick. And it seems to be paying off.

Two of my recent entries (pictured above) in Minted's Work of Art Challenge were chosen as winners. Sweet! 

Woodshed, an image from my father-in-law's ranch, was voted a winner by the community, and Skyscraping, a picture of an airplane from an airplane, was deemed an Editor's Pick by the Minted staff. Both pieces are for sale via my Minted Online Store

I'm riding this squared momentum with five fresh entries in the next challenge — Three Cheers! Minted x West Elm's 3rd Art Challenge.

West Elm actually chooses some winners to sell on their website. What?! Let's see what happens.
