1st official Gallery representation and Radio Interview

Ohh, I can’t believe it happen !

Several month ago I entered few of my Frozen Spring pieces into “All Botanical” competition at Contemporary Art Gallery Online and to my absolute delight.. I won!

Certificate of Contemporary Art Gallery Special Choice award for Frozen Spring art

Certificate of Special Juror Choice award from Contemporary Art Gallery Online for Frozen Spring art

As usual, with my luck, everything started with confusion, when first judges gave me 1st place in the paintings category. As much as I am flattered that my ice photography is mistaken for the water color paintings,  I did had to insist that they would review their selection.

As part of the prize package, my series are now represented by Contemporary Art Gallery Online and you can see them in their official catalog.

“Spring Time” — print on aquarelle rag paper which got me Special Juror choice award.

Another prize was an online radio interview. First ever interview, I was quite scared to tell you the truth, not knowing how to prepare or what to say. Thankfully Michael was very easy to talk to and made me feel.. semi-relaxed 🙂 Interview was recorded last month and aired last saturday. However, it took me few days to pull myself together to actually listen to it.

Taking the risk and enjoying it!

Past several weeks were the most exhausting, most exciting  and most rewarding in my life as a photographer.

It all started several months ago, when friend talked me into applying for participation in the ArtExpo New York and our portfolios were approved. What a rush it has been…  figuring out what, where and how to print, writing bio and artist statements, preparing promotion materials, figuring out the pricing.. oh, pricing was one of the most difficult parts, I must admit.

Thanks for the support of my husband and our friends, we were miraculously able to complete everything by the show opening.. and the fun has begun !

better safe (and annoyed), than sorry

this morning I was not .. this morning my twitter account got hacked and stolen from me literally before my eyes. 

One moment I was checking my “connect” screen on my iPhone twitter application and another I am getting email that my twitter email address and account password were changed. SHOCKED! 

I honestly, honestly, honestly tried to contact support, but apparently once email address on the account was changed — the support would not do anything and their only advise is to start new account.. 

So I did.. and this time I enabled 2 steps verification.. on ALL my accounts, everywhere where it is offered.. with separate applications passwords… The feature I turned off a while ago. because I was annoyed of all the extra prompts.. but you know what ? I will try to stay calm and patient from now on.. and carry my phone everywhere. 


P.S. The scariest thing is that I was managing not one — 2 accounts on twitter.. one for me and another of my friend. And no, I am not able to sign in into friend’s account as well from the web. May be its a glitch.. or may be that account also got stolen, and that would mean I got a bug.. 😦
