Firstly congratulations to all who have been selected for Patchings 2015.
I received my letter... Of rejection, for all three of my paintings :(
I expect there is a lot of you out there who received the same letter as I. As an Artist, of any type, if you open yourself up to being judged you have to learn to accept the rejection letters and turn them into a positive. Remember there are 7 billion people in the world and your art has been rejected by just a handful at most and that handful will have their own ideas about what they like in a painting. Artworks are different things to different people. Jack Vettriano's painting The Singing Butler is the top selling print in the country, yet Jack the Artist is constantly put down by the establishment.
So all you rejects out there, file your letters, pick up your brushes and get painting!
I've included my three rejected painting here with this blog... I would love to see yours
