Anyway, I told her I would think about this.
In the past 24 hours of soul searching and mental refocus, I remembered years ago another colleague said to me “Sheree, you always get picked! You get into every show you enter!” I laughed and responded, “No, I don’t! I just apply for EVERYTHING and the odds are in my favor! I get into a lot of shows because I enter zillions!” Having remembered that conversation, I compared it to what is going on now. I don’t apply to zillions anymore. I enter here and there on an occasional basis. I am nonchalant and just put things together when the mood strikes or something looks vaguely interesting.
This is SLOPPY. Yes, it is sloppy, sloppy, sloppy! I mentioned my art goals in a post last month. I sat here and realized I couldn’t even remember what I wrote. How can I attain my goals, if I can’t remember them? I can’t! I had to look them up! Oh geeshhhhh!! Sloppy again. Also, in my rejection video I mentioned having a target at which to aim. So today is the day I am cleaning my “art house”. I am going to tidy up my goals, aim high, and shoot. Come the next New Year, I will check back to see how I did. I will at least be able to say “I am giving my art efforts 1010% effort!”
FOR THE KICK IN THE ASS!!
