What an appropriate title to the post today, when I think about it. Last week, I found out from the Daily Painter website that I had not been accepted this go around. After much deliberation and after I did some self-reflection, I decided that it was for the best right at the moment. I leave on Friday to go out of town for two weeks to get MARRIED. If I had just been accepted to the website, I would be stressed out about trying to post things when I should be focusing on the next two weeks of my life.

But. Just because I was not accepted does not mean that I have given up by any means. The more I thought about their response and rejection email, the more I realized that I definitely need to apply again. I think the thing that hurt me the most was my two month hiatus from posting while I was out of the country and worried about wedding details. So, I am going to be almost religious in my fervor to post regularly and to paint ALL the time. This is especially helped because I have to produce a LOT of work in the next few months to begin applying to festivals and to get ready for White Linen Nights on Aug. 2nd.

Daily Painters, you have not seen the last of Shelby Crutchley, and when she applies again in August, you are going to be BLOWN AWAY by the amount of quality, beautiful work she has done, and how faithful she is being to posting on her blog.

Okay, that's it for today, Ciao!
