Mural is a no go

Unfortunately I didn't win the competition. I was a little disappointed after all the hard work but I gained a lot of experience that I will be able to use next time I enter. I will do a mural some day- this just wasn't it. I offer my congratulations to the artist that won. Rejection is always a part of being an artist and I have faced my share like everyone else. It bothered me for like an hour. My good friend Leslie said- rejection is good- it means they weren't ready for your art!! I definitely don't take it personally anymore. It's like water off a duck's back. Now I need to enter another contest and get some more irons in the fire!
