I got about eight hate emails from someone who does not like me. My distractor wrote to me several times today to tell me that she is a real artist while I am not..(seriously!) Well, she can't ruin my good mood. Today I also got an acceptance into what I consider a prestigious show. I am really happy about being accepted! It is hard to keep putting yourself "out there" with the very real possibility of being rejected every time. Some people are so fragile they can't do it at all. She is doing nothing with her art career and is angry with me about it! It is a big world! Art is for everyone, but she has advised me that my successes are not successes at all. This is coming from someone who has a totally invisible art career. Well, I assume she is going to be very big art news someday...(because she knows so much more about everything than I do). I don't understand what she is waiting for, however, she's been out of school for a hundred years.
