Good and Bad
So I had all three of my pieces entered into the SoMMA show accepted, but only one of the two for St Augustine’s “Faces and Figures”. Rejection is something us artists just have to get used to. Sometimes it’s easier than others. This was one of the easy ones. By the time this piece was “finished” (and now I’m not sure it was) I hated it. Not that it is an awful piece per se, but it’s just not one of my favorites and it was a pain in the butt while working on it. I’m sure this happens to other artists as well. We don’t always hate the difficult ones and we don’t always love the ones that come easy – though if they come easy it helps for more positive feelings. So tell me… what is wrong with this picture in your eyes? Personally, I’m not happy with the yellows on the wings and will do away with them. I may also obscure the word Elevating and do something different with her hair. She is called “A-Musing” by the way, because she embodies many of the things in this world that inspire me. So once she is reworked I may try to enter her again.
