Thank you!

I really can't thank you all enough for your kind notes about the last post. I really am not too upset - just surprised and it makes me wonder if I am missing something glaring in the painting? But mostly, I wanted to serve as a reminder that all art is subjective and people find beauty in different things. I love the painting. I loved creating it.
My husband is lukewarm on it. Too much green he says. Perhaps the jury panel thought so too. But my other entries were flawless. LOL

Yesterday afternoon, I had a nice surprise to see my name in print in American Art Collector. Castle Gallery in Indiana was one of the galleries featured to share what's hot in their gallery. They kindly mentioned my name and art as having an "enthusiastic following." Now that makes me proud.

I'm reminded of a Seinfeld episode where Jerry kept breaking even - he lost $20 and then later found $20 in a jacket or something. You win some, you lose some. And I am a big believer that over time, it all works out as its meant to.

Next... the Oil Painter's of American western region show. I've never been accepted in that!

Yes, you win some you lose some. I have yet to get in any of the OPA shows, although I've gotten in other nice exhibits and been awarded some encouraging honors. It all comes down to the juror's subjective taste, so I try to take it in stride when I'm rejected from a show I really want to get in.
