So unbelievably bummed.
Yes...there were many entries for not enough spots. It is, however, little consolation to me that this piece did not make it into a juried exhibition (one that is , or was, very important to me). It is felted in a single piece on a complex template (what looks like three is really one...titled URBANITY) I am totally bummed. I'm not seeking pats on back or expressions of incredulous shock and awe...just feeling sorry for myself...and then mad at myself for feeling sorry for myself. I tried Sherbert (rainbow) and it was not quite enough. Washed dishes to distract myself...hmmm, now I am p.o.ed. Like any rejection, I will get over it, but despite reaching really high, I have been on quite an amazing winning streak. I suppose I was due to get some wind knocked out of my sails. Really bummed, nonetheless. It will have to be short lived because tomorrow the focus must switch to the installation for Detroit. The work will go on.
