Value Your Work

Purple Haze: Ode to Jimi Hendrix

From my book, An Artist Empowered:

Don’t worry about the rejections. Everybody that’s good has gone through it. Don’t let it matter if your works are not ‘accepted’ at once. The better or more personal you are the less likely they are of acceptance.

Just remember that the object of painting pictures is not simply to get them in exhibitions. It is all very fine to have your pictures hung, but you are painting for yourself, not for the jury. I had many years of rejections.
