I just entered the most competitive art show to date.
I am such a lame person - I usually only enter shows I know I will place in. Sad but true, I am comfortable being a big fish in a little sea.
Well, today I submitted work in a national level art competition (work that I have had very little input about - meaning an artistic critique of). I am feeling very insecure. At best I hope to just get my work accepting in the show; I don't think I will place. It is a bit nerve wracking.
Wish me luck - say a prayer that they find favor in my works - and I will keep you all posted.
Unfortunately we will not know anything for a while - so no holding your breath!
