Just putting it out there and hope'n for the best!

Let me get a bit honest and vulnerable:

I am not usually an insecure person or insecure artist. I am creative and well skilled, so their isn't much to be insecure about. Right?

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.

Being mostly optimistic, I am trying not to get my hopes up. My chances of getting in are very slim. This show is known for only selecting the best of the best. It has such a reputation that many artists who are not already "making it" don't even bother entering. So I am out on a limb here.
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!
