Art Blog: Art DRAMA

This is hysterical. Sometimes I am a silly artist. I don’t know why but I truly feel this is going to be a great year for me and my art. I have no clue how I came to this conclusion. There is just something I feel intuitively. Like I have mentioned in previous posts I currently have pieces out at Salt Creek Artworks here in St. Pete and RFD Gallery in Georgia. Maybe I haven’t mentioned RFD because I wanted to wait until they get the show pics online so I can document the work there.

So today, I got home from work and picked up the mail from my box. I see a letter from Caladan Gallery. I had applied to be in a show titled “CREATING SYNTHESIS: EXPLORING ART AND TECHNOLOGY”. I looked at the letter and thought “This is weird. Why would they send me a snail mail letter when this show is about technology? Strange.” No sooner did that pass through my mind I thought “Oh crap. This is a rejection letter!” I threw it down on the table. I just didn’t want to deal with it at that moment. Then I stopped, stood and looked down at the envelope for a few moments. I almost threw it in the trash. I didn’t. I just stood there staring at it. I remembered my planned “good year”. I was already pissed that this envelope was going to wreck my prediction! LOL LOL LOL LOL

I picked the envelope up and tore it in a nasty, snotty way. I was taking my PRE-revenge before I even knew what the letter said. I opened it up just enough to take a peek. Here is what I saw:

I thought “What the hell?” LOL LOL I burst out laughing. See what I do to myself. I am my own worst enemy sometimes. I ripped open the envelope and read the letter. Sure enough, my work will be in the show. This is very cool. What isn’t so cool is my negative mindset. I have to work on this. Tee HEE HEE

Deb, You are right. It is good I actually read it. I thought the same thing. I have jumped to conclusions far too many times before. Maybe this is a step in my maturation process. LOL LOL
