Back in January I submitted these two paintings to the Courage Kenny holiday card contest.
I have frankly forgotten about doing this, but this week I got email rejections for both. But the Snowy Day email included ” …we would like you to know that your art (listed above) was among those in the final review”. So that’s encouraging!
and *I* would like to encourage any artists reading this blog to put yourself out there! getting that rejection was a nice uplift for me….and have you heard how many rejections writer Stephen King piled up before he became widely read?
I found out about the call for entries from CAFE — Call for entry.org that sends emails updating you on various art opportunities based on your specifications. I would not have known about it otherwise.
