Summer and Art Show Rejection WOYWW #14

Dear Friends,
Sorry for the depressing title folks. I couldn't think of a better title for what has been going on with me artistically lately.  I submitted the second picture-the iris- to a very small local show with local artists, and it was rejected.  It was very disheartening!  But after a couple of days of mulling it over I have decided that this means that I need to work harder and paint harder, not give up completely!  I have a friend in show business, and she told me "50 rejections for every acceptance" Yikes!  I had better get applying!  This first picture is my other current project- a New York City skyline for our bedroom- it has a NYC theme.  I'd love any and all advice about entering art shows!  Happy WOYWW!
