Please have a look at my “15 minutes” – an article about the “Visions of Artists Alive and Well” show last Saturday: http://www.eadolife.com/2012/01/25/arts-culture/art/art-show/visions-of-artists-alive-and-well (several pics of me, other artists and our work in the slide show at the top, plus a short piece about me, the show and Artists Alive & Well – no, I haven’t been painting 30 years, only since 2007!).
I firmly believe in acknowledging your own successes and in accepting all positive acknowledgements others give you. I don’t see how an artist can thrive creatively without this kind of nourishment. Maybe a driven “certifiable” creative genius could, but not a more ordinary mortal like me.
I’ll let you know what kind of inspiration arises out of this little boost for my artist’s ego. 🙂
Happy creating – Linda
