Ah, art, it's diabolical, isn't it? Some people love it, some hate it, some don't understand it, and some couldn't give a hoot. Art is in the eye of the beholder, or collector.
There are people who say they'd love nothing more than to be an artist. But, alas, some of these people don't know what it takes. The sacrifice, the years, the work, the learning, the...bumps in the road. There are also great things. Great things come from a lot of work, and belief, and tenaciousness. Life is not just falling off a log.
As for a great art show, well, that's a cool thing. This piece, Safe with Mother, will be in one soon, in a large city. More details to come later. ;)
Suffice it to say that big city exhibitions can be REALLY cool. Interesting things can happen. Fun things can happen.
The truth is that art shows must be a part of a viable art path.
The proof's in the pudding... X
