I have entered several contests to see if I can get any votes. Not really - Only one vote on a few of my art works in a few of the contests. I do not expect to place or anything, but I would like to see if my art is any good. I am getting discouraged. Maybe I am not very good. Maybe this is just a dream that will always be a dream. It makes me very sad. I don't expect to ever be great - though of course would love to be - but I would love to be appreciated by others in the art community or by art lovers. I am getting some good feed back on some pieces and for those who are taking the time to do that, I thank-you. It helps me know what direction to focus. Until now I have not focused on one type of art as I do not know what my customers will like plus I want to try to become well rounded. The more feed back I get, the better I can focus my attention. In the mean time, I am experimenting with styles suggested by some artists I have been in contact with as well as my sisters who are trained artist and my niece who is going to college to become an art teacher. I respect all of their ideas and suggestions.
