I was rejected to a high end show that I was really exited about participating in. I felt my work was ready, but apparently the famous curator did not. I guess I’ll add it to my list of rejects and keep working.
Had I been accepted into the show, I would have immersed myself into my studio for the next six months trying to paint my best work for the show.
Instead, my plans changed, and I have been able to relax and head outdoors to simply study the light. I’m finding this personal time, with no goals what so ever, to be invigorating. I am understanding so much more about the truth of the values I am observing, and I can see the shift in my work.
