Success requires thick skin

As an artist you get rejected a lot, trust me. It’s not enough that we have our own inner critics. We must share our work with our peers, find our audience, apply for grants, submit to galleries both online and bricks and mortar. Then we wait for the letter in the mail or our inbox and sometimes it is a rejection letter like the one below.

I accept that my work is not for them but I would have loved more detail. What direction are they moving in? Some constructive criticism is welcomed by me.

You gotta just dust yourself off and keep moving forward! That’s what I do. I put my hair up in a high ponytail, swept some coral lipstick on and spritzed myself with my favourite scent. Sigh, it’s all good.
