I have come to a point where I want to actively search for a venue for my new work. This could mean sending out literally hundreds of proposals. I have decided to thrive on the inevitable rejection. Each rejection is valuable to me. It can take hundreds of NOs to get one YES. Its all a numbers game.

The above painting is "Girl in Purple Bikini" oil and acrylic on paper, 48x48 inches. Its part of my Selfsploitation project.
