March 9, 2012 Still Life #64
Still Life #64 24"x24 gouache on oriental paper
In Still Life #64, I am using intensity for the gradation. So the piece gradates from bright to dull, each way.
I have recently had a new brochure printed and have been sending them out. Which brings me to rejection,.... again.
“This manuscript of yours that has just come back from another editor is a precious package. Don't consider it rejected. Consider that you've addressed it 'to the editor who can appreciate my work' and it has simply come back stamped 'Not at this address'. Just keep looking for the right address.”
― Barbara Kingsolver
I like this quote, and will rewrite it for artists. "This painting of yours that has just been rejected is a precious painting. Don't consider it rejected. Consider that your've addressed it 'to the dealer, curator who can appreciate my work' and it has simply come back stamped, 'Not at this address'. Just keep looking for the right address."
