100 Day Challenge - Day 10
Yes. I got rejected today and it feels fine. Which is strange because I am a drama queen and I would expect myself to be gloomy for the rest of the week. But I'm not . *^v^*
I applied to the Trunkt. I thought it would be a great place to let people know about my paintings. They very politely answered that they've received many talented artists' applications every week and this time they were sorry but couldn't accept mine. Which generally means "Errr... nope."
And I didn't feel like the ceiling just fell on my head and didn't take my paintings to the garbage bin, and I don't hate them at Trunkt. I just thought - well, maybe it's not for me, maybe, it's too early for my works, I need more practice, maybe it wasn't meant to be this time. Let's carry on. And try in a month's time, yeah! *^v^*
Something is changing inside me! =^v^=
Plus, I had a really nice conversation with an old lady in a brush shop this morning. I generally don't chat to people, just buy what I need and go out, but this time I wasn't in a hurry and her granddaughter just left Poland to spend 6 months in India on a collage project, so she was a bit nervous and described me her living quarters (with the Internet access but a toilet in a form of a hole in the floor...), and all her collage faculties (she had three going), and the lady looked really pleased she could share it all with somebody.
It's nice to stop for a moment and talk to people, it gives you the warm fuzzies inside (and Winter is coming, mind you!) *^v^*
BTW, we have a progress with my mother's opinions on my painting - I showed her all the canvases and explained the English words appearing there, and she said she liked the Cooking Girl best, and that I paint in a modern style (whatever that means) . That's more of an opinion than just: "Funny." *^v^*
Unichorn, I remember about the pencil drawings, I just cannot find them anywhere!... I've looked today and I'll keep looking for them, they must be some place, keep reminding me about them! *^v^*
