Win some, lose some..

I have learned that my Art Pops were not chosen for publication today.  But, that's okay!  I am taking rejection so much better than I did a year ago.  It is only through this artistic adventure that I have taken these challenges and have really grown from them.  Whenever I enter one of these challenges or sketchbook themes, it really stretches my imagination and sends my artwork in such different areas that I would never have gone before!  And sometimes I find myself pleasantly surprised (sketching) at the processes and results.

So, if you are on the fence about jumping in with submitting your artwork, well let me give you a slight push.  Rejection will come but with each rejection you are one step closer to your goal.  At least that's what I tell myself! :)

Here's to Art; my passion forever and always no matter what speed bumps come between us!

sharing the rejections of an artist who will never waiver on this artist holiday,


  1. I see entering challenges as sewing seeds. no matter the out come something is gained in some way. I think you were robbed!, those pops should have made it in.
    can't wait to see what you make next.

  2. I really liked your pops! They were very unique and oh! so colorful! There may be another venue for you to enter them. Try, try again!
