But that's not what this blog post is about.I've had wonderful opportunities over the last few years to show my work in a variety of venues. After examining my expectations for the last series of exhibits, my take is this:
Some days the right buyer – or two or ten – come along, some days they’re off playing miniature golf.Sometimes, despite our best efforts to exhibit quality fine art and to put our best selves forward, the right buyer doesn’t show up.

Sometimes, even though our presentation is haphazard and our socks are mismatched, they do.

It's not about reading how-to books or waiting to get started just as soon as the kids are grown up or the dishes are done.
It's about showing up in my creative spaces ready to go and to do the hard grind so that when the time comes, when the right venue calls or the right patron shows up, I'm ready.
It's about believing in my mission. I trust that my work is the best I can do. That trust extends to the belief that someone else, somewhere will make that connection and agree with me. And if I'm ready, that elusive concept of success will happen.
