Fabulous watercolor design! Many wonderful details!
Thanks! Well, they did mention they were interested in something with a more 'modern' flare. I wasn't thinking about that as I chose what to enter. I can see that the Hollyhocks may have felt more retro than modern to the judges. I do suspect the audience would have liked them anyway. I appreciate your support!

I was just looking at the Hollyhock Spiral and thinking that it surely would have won a place if it had been in. I didn't get to the comments, got sidetracked looking at the terrific doll-house chair.
I realize that maybe the judges had some style, or colors they were looking for; in which case the instructions should have been more detailed, I think. If all one has to go by are the collections they already sell, it would seem that your work would really interest them.
I appreciate your disbelief. I did submit my Hollyhock Spiral design http://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/127486
I was very disappointed not to make the cut, but there were another 600 plus designers who were in the same boat. We can congratulate the 100 whose designs drew the attention of the Fabric8 judges and continue to have fun designing.
One thing I have learned as an artist and some times curator, judging isn't easy and it reflects the aesthetics of the decision makers. It doesn't really reflect on the quality of the work not chosen other than as an indication it didn't quite fit the judges' vision.
That doesn't mean I don't appreciate your shock. It makes me happy that you think my design should have been included. I'm just going to have to find another way to get picked up as a designer by another fabric company,
I was shocked not to see one of yours among the semi-finalists in the Fabric8 contest! Were you unable to submit one? I can't be sure, because I was equally astounded to see that Nicole Tamarin's gorgeous piece wasn't chosen. http://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/1133117
I can't understand it, unless they didn't believe that either of you were amateurs!

Thank you bad_penny and thatswho. Until you mentioned it I had not hear about the contest. I've been remiss in entering lately, but you got me to check it out. I will absolutely be entering this one! I appreciate your good wishes.
Excellent watercolor paintings! I do hope you enter the Fabric8 contest. Love the prairie wildflowers!
You're one of the first people I thought of when I read the description of the up-coming Fabric8 contest. I hope you're planning to enter! http://www.fabric8contest.com/
Hi skater. I love prairie flowers and actually I have tried to paint prairie smoke. Its VERY hard to capture. Hummm, it might make a fabric. Thanks for the idea.

if this is the result " keep playing" absolutely fabulous!!:)))xx
Thank you! I have a series of new paintings about endangered prairie eco-systems that are the source for these images. I'll play with them more in the future.
This design is gorgeous. Prairie flowers, my friend introduced me to these. I love this. Karen
Thanks so much! This is a detail from a much larger watercolor painting.
