"Kestrels"

Today I got my rejection letter from "Birds in Art", the annual art competition hosted by the "Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum" in Wisconsin. I entered this painting and "Chobe Fisherman" from an earlier post. I guess there's alway's next year.

Wow, beautiful painting! I can't believe that was rejected, guess I don't feel as badly about my rejection too! As you said there is always next year...

Thank you Pamela.

You got mugged, my friend. Like Pam, I feel better about the rejection letter I should be getting any day. The kestrels are spectacular, and you know how I feel about the Malachite.

I am still waiting to hear something from Woodson . . . mail around DC moves rather slowly, just like in Congress and the rest of the mess inside the Beltway! So, maybe today? And, I agree with the others, this is a beautiful work and I am hard pressed to see why it did not make the cut. I believe you are in good company on the 'cut list', though.

Gee, at least you entered. April 15th comes around and I look around the studio and say, "Let's see... what do I have that's a bird...". Beautiful work as usual John. Juries are fickle. Hmmm, I wonder what other shows are coming up.

Well, Johnny I am really surprised, it is a wonderful painting and for the life of me, can't see why it would have been rejected. Fortunately, no such sad stories for me though as I missed BIA this year.
