Work in Progress: Spring Breeze IV (Almost Finished...)

Today is a very very very busy day trying to finished "Spring Breeze IV" so that it can make some submission deadlines that are coming dangerously close... I will be in this hyper-tension state of painting all through March, since there are quite a few shows I want to submit to that have set their deadline in late February through early April. My goal is to submit to 8 - 10 National shows this year across the country, and see how many I could get in. It is time consuming business, and also a bit costly when you add up the application fee, the shipping, the return shipping, the handling fee charged by the show committee, framing, packaging (Art Float Strong Box is incredibly expensive)... So, when I submit to a show, I would try to be careful in choosing the venue of the show -- is it in a city that is art friendly or considered by the collectors as a major art destination? Is the exhibition hosted in a well-located gallery or museum that attracts collectors? Is the time of the show coincide with events such as First Friday Art Walks hosted by the city where the show venue is located?... These are all the factors that could facilitate the sale of artworks in the exhibition. At the end of the day, if I receive an empty return shipping box with a check in the envelop, I would be more than too happy!... :-P
