This year I entered my first juried show and my paintings were not accepted. After shedding a couple tears (it was my first juried show, after all!) I wrote a brief and respectful email to the juror asking for suggestions about how I could improve so I could try again next year. He wrote back that my technique was okay, but the subject--hands--wasn't something that sells. Hmm. Maybe hands don't sell but they do hold glasses of wine and beer, prop up an arm during a nap on the beach, show a life of hard work, and wait a minute! I have proof that they sell--here are some hands selling bangles in Delhi!
