Earlier this week I applied for a juried art show for my very first time. It was the Flora and Fauna show at The 930. I thought the show would be perfect for me, but I was rejected. But applying was a really big step for me, so I am still happy I tried. I will keep trying. In the meantime, I turned my rejection email into the first page of my new art journal. I am finally following my advice about trying to do art on a daily basis (the lesson I learned from the Sketchbook Project). I have called the piece Flora and Fauna.
