Me at the San Diego Art Institute opening reception, Balboa Park. Thru 2/24/13.

I set a goal for myself this year. I won't tell you how many paintings I am trying to get selected into shows this year, but luckily, I am off to a good start. This is my second attempt, second entry.

This show made me nervous. When I got to the reception, it was extremely more crowded than the reception last month.. The art selection was completely different, highlighting the fact that there is a different juror every month... and even though I knew that, seeing the collection hit home. I was able to listen to the juror speak this month and he noted how he tried to get a good representation of many different categories of art into this show. I think he did an excellent job.. Frankly, I am surprised that my selection made it in this month.

You never know what you're going to get....keeps me on my toes.

Hope you're on your toes too.... how do you stay up there?
