Probably because I was. :-(
What do you think? (Anyone who happens to find this by accident!)
I have been participating in Karin Jurick's fun challenge site since the 1st of September, 2008.
It has been the single most influential source of my beginning to paint on a regular basis again.
It got me started and I have looked forward to every week,
each new challenge, all 15 of them so far.
But, this time my painting was rejected and so I was despondent all day.
It did not look enough like the photo.
(Actually, it was more like..."it didn't resemble the reference photo in any way.") That's Karin...straight to the point. And, that's what I have really appreciated about her all along.
And today, I went back and read her words she posted on the blog this week...especially "#3. work every day at it regardless of the applause because that's what ultimately improves your work."
Anyway, I have to agree with Karin, that she has to make this decision every time and
Boring stuff- for painters, only:
