No offense to those who have art work hanging in their local Holiday Inn, but I feel like hotel art is just that, HOTEL ART. You can't distinguish one from the other, it's pretty bland and forgettable.
Anyways, yesterday I participated in an art competition and it wasn't too bad. I scored well in my division and had state worthy work, but the pieces picked this year to advance onto state were somewhat akin to hotel art...
I don't feel disappointed in myself, but I do feel disappointed in the competition for not picking the more sophisticated pieces there. I felt like other artists (with visible talent) were overshadowed by some Jackson Pollock/Cecil Touchon ripoffs. No really, one piece looked like Ke$ha had peed on a paper.
And I would rant about some crappy stuff that happened to me today, but it all just boils down to one thing: I need to learn how to juggle school and finding a job.
Financial independence is probably the worst/last thing I need right now, but it's so appealing.
