Artists Wanted in Times Square

I set up a profile on this Artist's Wanted website. They claim to be having a big show in NY and there is 10,000.00 in prize money available. I have no delusions about winning, I already know who will win. The winner will be someone in their late twenty's early thirties who started out in the fine art department of a NYC art school. After doing drugs for four straight years rather then painting or drawing, he, she, or it, sobered up just enough to get a job in retail or at one of the trendy clubs in the city. Having the desire to be an "Artist", but not the ability, they went out to buy a brand new camera, and a new found love of photography. While strolling around the city taking pictures of store windows, empty McDonald's cups, and peoples feet, they took the prize winning shot of barbed wire, and gave it some clever title relating to how "the man" keeps us all locked in.... I, on the other hand, spent all that time struggling at home in my studio, trying to learn how to draw and paint, and reading books, so how can I expect to compete with a brilliant photo of barbed wire.
The winner is based on how many people "collect" you so it is already more of a popularity contest rather then a competition....
Why might you wonder, am I entering? Prize money!!! People play the lotto all the time. I'd rather bet on myself...even if the odds are slim. And i'm posting it, just in case some of you out there are sick of the "barbed wire" as well.

  1. You are such a cynic! (but oh, so right)
    And I love that painting!

  2. I am, but also a very happy person who likes to be on a beach in my free time.
    Some people who are positive, walk around with their head in the sand.
    People who are always negative miss out on the fun things in life, which is why if I do see something negative, I try to make it funny.
    Just trying to keep my eyes open and see the world clearly.

    ...and thank you!!
