I submitted to the Verum Ultimum Gallery show in Portland, "Abstract Catalyst." This one was waitlisted, the same one that was accepted in the Seattle show. It's interesting - I like all three paintings that I submitted very much but the one I find most interesting, the first one, doesn't get chosen. Isn't this the way it is? Nonetheless, I can't let it stop me from making the art that counts most to me. I'm hoping the waitlisted one will make it into the show - it was an international call though, and it is clear that it is far more competitive that a regional or even a national show. But - those are the thoughts that are circular, never ending! I'm happy that one of the pieces was noticed and made it to the final round.
