So, yeah for me:)....when was the last time?
Some of you may remember a post that I wrote in March. The post asked your reflection upon "when was the last time you did something for the first time?" Along with the reflection question, there was a list of possible first time things one might consider. I've been ticking off a few of those lately and a couple of weeks ago I took my heart, entry form AND collage in hand and sent it off by electronic entry into our local Carnegie Art Center Juried Art Show.
Guess what - it has been accepted! And that's my big "ta-dah!" Yep, I'm very happy about it and keep trying to keep the negative talk to a minimum.....negative? you say..... your art piece has just been selected!! Well, maybe there was a mistake; maybe there were not enough really good artists - well, there were 160 pieces entered and only 58 accepted. They should have chosen the "other" one I submitted instead of this one. Someone is going to think I bribed the juror - I've never heard of him, he doesn't live here, he was a juror for heavens' sake!
Oh, I am beating all of that stuff down in my brain but now I'm sort of paralyzed to do the next piece - large or small. I know, I know, I'm working on it and yes, once again, I'm very happy about it:)
