This shot is from yesterday, had to work tonight.
I tried to get my work published with 'Artists to Watch' and this is the email I had waiting tonight.

Thank you for sending us your photographs for review. They are wonderful! We enjoyed the variety of concepts behind your images. The themes you chose were intriguing and your passion for your artwork shines through.
Although it is wonderful, I am sorry that we cannot include them in our line up of greeting cards at this time. We already have a wonderful nature photographer, jim Brandenburg, who we love working with. But please do not take this as any reflection of the quality and potential of your work and your talent. Your work is great! We receive nearly 1,000 submissions every year and can work with only a very few artists.
Keep us updated on what you are doing. Please continue to pursue your passion with your artwork – it makes the world a better, more colorful place to live!
( It was worth a try )
