Putting Yourself Out There

Dancing With the Stars

Film Noir

I read an article about rejection last year that caused me to make a concerted effort to enter as many exhibits and competitions as I could that come through my emails and art publications and relate to my work. The premise, of course, is that rejection is the best thing that can happen to an artist, making us try harder to ultimately become better at what we do. So after being turned down from various exhibits in New York City, Hollywood, Fl, & Los Angeles, CA, I was thrilled to find that two of my pieces have received recognition in the Special Merit Award Category of the Figurative Art Exhibition at the Light Space & Time Online Gallery, chosen from 667 entries. All winning entries are now featured on lightspacetime.art for the month of April 2017; thereafter, the artwork will remain online in the Light Space & Time Archives. The Special Merit Award artists are featured in this video in alphabetical order, so my paintings don’t appear until about 10 minutes in, but I think you’ll appreciate all the wonderful work here. I’m very proud to be included, and, I must say, I think acceptance feels ever so much better than rejection…
