I do what might be described as classical realism or representational painting because it speaks to my heart and I hope that my work speaks to some of you, too. I really appreciate the support. So I submitted these two paintings for consideration for the "Art Maryland 2016" exhibit in Howard County. I got a form email that they were rejected by the juror and new curator of the Baltimore Museum of Art, Christopher Bedford. At first I felt bad, but after doing a bit of research on what makes Mr. Bedford tick, I don't so much any more. Not to knock his picks, but to quote Morrisey, they "say nothing to me about my life." To each his/her own, I guess. Back to the easel. https://www.saatchiart.com/…/100-Curators…/348930/35290/view P.S. I'm not knocking abstract/nonrepresentational or contemporary collage-type art. I agree with @Kingston that it is very difficult to do well, but when it is done well, it can be sublime. Rothko comes to mind.
