... and don't bother coming back another day!
Oy. Woke up several times throughout the night with what most definitely felt like a sinus headache as every time I turned over my head was pounding and, not having had any sort of alcoholic beverages to speak of, I knew it wasn't hangover related! I finally crawled out of bed, downed a couple of Advil Cold & Sinus tablets, and went back to bed to let them work their magic. Several hours later I was back up and feeling a bit better though I'm afraid my energy levels match the weather today which is overcast and blah. Gee, must be my day off!
Still, I need to work up some sort of energy/enthusiasm so that I can schlep down to Mystic and drop off my accepted entry for the Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts 99th Annual Juried Exhibition at the Mystic Arts Center which runs from May 28th to July 17th. Entries have to be in either today or tomorrow and today seems like the better choice as it's my day off.
I'm hoping that this particular show doesn't leave me feeling quite as inadequate as the (old f)art show up in West Hartford did but I guess if I'm going to try to dip my toes into the stream of juried art competitions that I'm either going to have grow a thicker skin or gain more confidence in my work. Both would probably be good!
Truth be told, even being chosen to part of the exhibit at all is really quite an honor so I guess I should stop whining, get dressed, pile the picture and the kid in the car, and head down to Mystic. After all, it may be an overcast day off but it's a day off nonetheless!
