I have been working on a number of commissions lately and I don't post them for fear that it might ruin a surprise for someone. So here is one of the newest that is safe to post.
I recently noticed that I have a very unfortunate instinct to dismiss compliments about my work. Almost in a rude way. Just because I feel uncomfortable acknowledging the accomplishment. And because I always feel a certain pressure to do even better next time. But you know, I need to practice gracefully accepting kind words and accept that it is okay to say "Yes, I am proud of this one."
I am receiving so much support for my art these days. I hope to be creating work that is inspirational and truly worthy of the support from the people who believe in me. I can promise that I always do my best for them!
I am so grateful, I would hate to project anything less. Awareness is key!
