わたしの住んでいる町では毎年この時期に美術展があります。以前は出品して売れたこともあったのですが、受け入れてくれない上に、下手な絵が賞をもらっていたことがあったので、このところ出品するのをやめています。今回もこんな絵が賞をもらっていたので、出品しなかったのは正解のようです。子供の絵だったのでしょうか。それにしてもねー . . . . . 。
In my town, we are having an art show this week as a part of the summer festival. There are so many good paintings including kids' paintings in the separate category. Some artists received awards, gift certificates, etc.
Three years ago, two of my paintings were accepted and someone bought them. Last year all of my paintings (three of them) were rejected while some questionable paintings received awards. This year, I didn't participate. I found this painting got the Juror's Award, so maybe my decision was right. Or was it in the kids' section? Even so . . . .
