As mentioned in my last entry, it's time to select some pictures, min. 5 / max 7, for submission to the Still Life: Elevating the Mundane juried exhibition. After a brief look at my picture library, only through the latest additions (6 months), I came up with the 24 pictures in the above ganged grouping + 3 decay pictures. I also created a picture, sweepings with chipmunk, specifically for submission to this exhibition = 29 submission possibilities.
Making submission choices is always difficult and somewhat of a guessing game - will my choices appeal to the juror (as opposed to me)? I have my favorites but I am not certain any of them would be a good choice for this exhibition theme. Taking into account the fact that what I considered to be very strong submissions to some exhibition themes that garnered no selections and the fact that one through-in / after-thought submission was selected and given and Honorable Mention, making choices sorta comes down to like throwing stuff at a wall and seeing what sticks.
At this point in the selecting game, the only thing I know for certain is the chipmunk + 1 of the decay pictures are in.
