ART and LIFE and LOVE and STUFF - artist submissions - the highs and the lows.....

Artist Submissions........mmmmmm - I don't really know how I feel about these...... Actually thats not true - I LOVE THEM when I get juried into an online gallery. Its gives me a lift, makes me feel like I'm going ok, makes me feel others see some merit in what I'm doing. The other-side.......those frickn' "Thank you for submitting, unfortunately.....blah blah blah. For days I will go down, its not pretty!!!! My thoughts of "ffs, does anyone understand how bloody hard it is to stitch paint onto canvas.......do they not understand!!!!!" Ok, so its a bit precious, and yes I'm acting like a brat I know, but oh those rejections are hard. I feel on some level fortunate because I have had a lot of success and I am proud of myself for being brave and submitting my art to be scrutinized, but WOW those emails hurt a bit!!! And I know this life is hard - it's confronting on a personal level and it can be soul destroying when you suffer rejection. But hey, I'm going to pick myself up..... its one persons opinion, it will not get me down........putting it in perspective, and moving on. Abstract art is my life; its how I think in my head and then how I translate my feelings to an audience. Because of one 'thanks but no thanks', I will could never really be down for too long.... I have to live like this...
