Submit or Not Submit...Help!?!

I recently found out that art submissions for the San Diego County Fair are due tomorrow and I haven't done anything new or worthy in ages! I've already submitted this piece to two shows this year, and placed in both. Should I try it again? I feel like it's either a huge cop out since I'm not creating anything new, but then again, maybe I'm just getting everything I can out of it.

What do you think? What is your feeling on this? Either way, I need to be working again. I just don't have time before tomorrow.

SUBMIT SUBMIT SUBMIT! It's lovely Lou, and you put a LOT of work into it...you may as well give it the exposure it deserves!

i think you could submit it(it is beautiful!!!)but might stay true to yourself and your art and take that time and instead devote to making "new" art and then submit the new piece with excitement and pride! ha! how is that for an opinion. lots of hugs.

Hi! Nice to "meet" you. Since I see your name quite often at Dionne's, I was so glad that you've left a comment in my blog.
Your water paintings are so beautiful. I really want to spend time drawing some day near future. I love water paintings. I added you in my list. Thank you.

It's an amazing piece of work...Everytime it's submitted more and different people get to view it and interpret it and ooh and aah over it and you get to feel proud of your creativity and hard work. Totally worth it for all parties involved. I say submit it and than make this your moment to make time toward another piece. I will be looking forward to seeing more!! Let us know what you decide.
