The Wait

In the words of Tom Petty....
"The Waiting is the hardest part." Friday my painting portfolio was reviewed for membership in the Cape Cod Art Association. I feel really good about the pieces I sent, but the time between the review and when the notification gets to my mailbox is when all the negative thoughts start creeping in. So I am keeping busy. Next Friday my Photos are going to be reviewed too so the process will start all over again.
Even with the stress involved in putting yourself out there and having your personal artwork judged I still recommend it. I have been forced to look at my work in a different way. It will help me as I create new pieces.

Keep Making Art!

You don't need luck you goofball. You've got it sewn up in both categories. But this is your "anxious moments" wife saying - I get it hon, I get it.
