I'm taking a mulligan on this one.  Take 3.  Action!

So if you are wondering,  I am not a finalist in the Pernod Absinthe competition and I have not heard back from Nazareth yet.  I will e mail them, maybe.  As for the Made in New York competition, I have lost count, but this is the 4th or 5th year in a row I have been rejected.  I am pretty pissed.  About all this.  It doesn't help that Eminems "The way I am" is on pandora. 

I am not sure what is next.  Actually I will enter the Finger Lakes Exhibition this month.  It's not the end of the world, I don't even apply to many shows/competitions or even send my work out to really be disappointed I guess.  But I really can't stand being rejected.  This is not a hobby for me.  This is what I have.  A few beers in the studio trying to get ready to paint.  It's frustrating. 

Alright, enough of the crybaby shit, time to paint.

Jim, you got into fingerlakes, didn't you? I met with some people about the show last week and could have sworn I saw your bull in the designer's plan. I have stopped by your blog occasionally and really like your work!
