The rejection by Santa Fe and your comments promoted me to think, very simplistically in a way I can build an action plan on this experience, thus: not edgy = boring = (in my case, among other things) need more colors = try serious Randying.
On the other hand, I am Japanese, and I love reduction/simplification, and I was getting really excited as I was replying to comments here about Zen in designs, particularly in revisiting Japanese tea ceremony, nature's natural-ness as its primary principle vs choreography.
Without getting into target markets and compatibility with galleries, etc., I think I need to proceed in two different directions. Or four. I'm finding dichotomies everywhere and I've been trying to post about another problem.
