The Art World Giveth and…taketh

So glad I had the boost to my art ego earlier this month with my first First Place win ever for “Gratitude”. This week I had a huge blow when I discovered the down side to entering as many submissions as allowed, just in hopes of getting ONE in. All FIVE of my submissions for the Cultural Center of Ponte Vedra Beach member show were rejected. Yes I know we are suppose to say “unaccepted”, but I prefer the more brutal word because sometimes that’s how it feels. Oh, I’m an old hat at this so I have a think skin and don’t take it too much to heart. I do take it as an opportunity to re-evaluate many things about my art and being an artist though. I also take it as a kick in the butt to ….improve, improve, improve!Gratitude in Green
