I'm so happy!!!

An East Coast art dealer called me today!  He had reviewed my art on my website and wanted to give me feedback!!!!  Can you believe it?  I was thrilled.  He was very cordial as he sensitively yet seriously critiqued my work.  He almost sounded apologetic as he gave me suggestions for improvement and asked questions about why I do this and that.  I guess he deals with so many “sensitive artists” who see any form of criticism or suggestions as personal assaults or slights.   He said, “You dont have to agree with me” as if encouraging me to stand up for my work and share more about my process and thoughts.  So, I went into my “typical refrain” on working with musical rhythms, etc. etc.   I told him many of the things I’ve shared in previous blogs.   He actually listened and responded with humorous anecdotes to relieve my anxiety.   What a pleasurable experience……….  I plan to take “every word that came out of his mouth” seriously.  Who knows where it will take me?  Yeah, I’m sensitive but not stupid!
