I entered the competition for Pope Francis artwork and was resoundingly beaten. I entered a Portrait Competition thru ArtSpace Herndon and my work was not even selected to be in the show.
It is rather defeating to feel like I am making strides because of the phenomenal reception my painting "Rocking Chair" received, only to get knocked back down by news of the competitions.
I have also been trying to create a website but do not know what I am doing. I have spent hours working on it and it looks like a mess. I have made changes only to fail to save them. I do not understand webdesign.
I am not sure if I will ever be able to make painting something that I make money from. I have fallen so in love with the process however I do not think I would ever stop painting. I just would like Painting to be something that can support my family, something I can do and still be available for my children.
I feel like this is a gift God has given me to share with others. But how can I do it if no one is interested in buying, or showing my work?
Sorry for the down tone of todays post but that is just the way I am feeling today.
