  things happen
This post comes under the heading of "things happen for a reason" (and assorted other cliches such as, "when one door closes another opens" and my dad's favorite, "illigitemi non carborundum"...if I have that spelled right...and no I'm not going to translate.)

Remember the post I did awhile back about rejection (see 1/17)? I was hoping that gallery would take me of course, but being turned down meant that I dove into my photo portfolio submission project in earnest...convinced that I had a chance with other galleries in the same area, which was one I thought would be great for my work. Over the course of a week and a half, I sent out a pile of photo packets.

And as a result I've now been contacted by two of the galleries in my target area. The first one that called did so within a week of getting the portfolio (which was a big surprise--I expected the whole process of getting someone's attention would take weeks, during which I'd have to make a pest of myself with follow up phone calls, emails etc.)

This is a gallery that I've visited in person, and found very beaustiful and classy. It had become my top choice gallery. So--I'm sending them a painting this week, and we'll see how things play out. I'm not quite ready to say which gallery and where, since things are still a bit uncertain, but if all goes well I'll give details pretty soon. All I can say now is that I am really pleased and excited.

ha ha ha....all those cliches came from people with a positive outlook. I'm happy to say I'm generally one of them. It doesn't always look that way at first (like the turn-down from the first gallery)....but as the cliche says.....it was all for a reason.

Beats being negative. I truly feel like you end up with what you visualize.
 
Yeah I agree, visualize your goals and stay positive. On a practical level that gives you the energy and momentum to do the nitty gritty to get where you want to be...but often there does seem to be a beautiful logic to the way things work out.
