Best Friend's Napping
I entered Best Friend's Napping and another painting in the Cincinnati Art Club's 42nd Annual Viewpoint National Juried Art Competition. This was a scary and nerve wracking process for me. To enter this show the process was very different then the two local shows that I have entered before.
The process for this show was to make a CD to specification of my paintings. The jpg could not exceed 5 MB and the picture was to labeled a certain way, as well as, the CD it self. I have dyslexia and tend to flip things. I looked all my writing over carefully, but feel like I mixed something up and missed it. I have heard stories of organizations tossing an entry application when something is not to specification. It was such an ordeal to get the nerve to enter such a prestigious show. The process of burning a CD (for a show) was a first for me, therefore I will be crushed if my negligence keeps me from even getting a look. However, I am proud of myself for taking this leap and trying to show my paintings at another level.
I will keep you posted if any of my work gets in. Wish me luck :-)
