Rejection...and success!

I believe that rejection eventually leads to success. The key is to keep going, keep evaluating your work, keep creating, keep entering those exhibitions or contacting those galleries. I think resilience is one of the key characteristics of successful artists.

After receiving three rejection letters last month, I was accepted into the Aqueous International. The Aqueous is held by the Pittsburgh Watercolor Society and was juried by Eric Weigardt, a nationally-known watercolorist and teacher.
Above is the painting "Little to Say" that was accepted into the show. It will be at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts, Nov. 16 to Jan 20.
