    Thank you so much. This was a perfect FUEL for me. I feel the same way…where and how do I fit into the artworld. Difficult to balance full time work as well, and get my butt in the studio. I will probably rewatch. Your work is not only amazing it is super cool Sue! Thanks for sharing.

    I can relate to the validation issue. People ask me if I feel I am in competition with others. NO! I am in competition with myself. I am 74 and admit I need validation from others but I am not in competition with anyone. I work with mixed media and seek ideas where I can. I feel sometimes that I am floundering but I can see the progress in my work. I seek help from my artist community. I dislike talking about my work also.
