I am wrapping up this to send to my Grandma for Christmas. Somerset has had it for a some time, and decided they didn't want it. I think Grandma will love it!
So here is my question, my thoughts? I would love to talk about rejection. I want to know why I care so much anyhow? Isn't this all for me, and my family? Apparently, I need more. This month Somerset has sent back 5 of my favorite pieces from last year. I seriously think they are some of my best, but I guess not. The funny thing is they have been publishing the stuff that I don't really thing is so great! So what now? I don't want to create for the masses, but I still like to send in my stuff, I guess to be acknowledged. I would also like to make art into a business soon, and that is a whole world of scary!
I was honestly pretty bummed about the whole thing. I got over it, of course. But it is still with me. And I wonder why I submit my stuff, and if I should still. I have been in the past 6 issues of Somerset Memories, but I would love to branch out. Creating time is a huge hurdle. I don't honestly think I have found my groove completely; I am still figuring myself out.
I would love to hear any thoughts about rejection, or why you create. I would love to hear it all!
And I did just post a late PPF in the post below. And as you'll discover, I am just in a artistic rut this week!
It's all good though, I promise. I had an incredible cup of coffee and a run this morning! Woot!~
