It must seem lonely when no one answers but, really, you captured all of the emotion, the disappointment, the self-doubt that an artist experiences when receiving a rejection, whether written, verbally, or simply by someone’s glance at a work and the turning away. I hope, seeing it from the other side, I will be more sensitive to someone’s feelings during art festivals. Your advice on moving forward is well-stated.
Thank you Kent for your grace and wisdom….standing still, staying present as that door slams on our creative offerings, finding our way back to the inner well from which we shimmer in spite of, or maybe in part because of, rejection is so very crucial. You have buoyed me. A big thanks….
Thank you, Kent. Your words about rejection are so very encouraging to me, and apply to all reative endeavors.
