Very humbled when on the first exhibit
in one of L.A.'s universities
I saw two university students sitting on the floor
copying my watercolor.
Being in my first years of painting had the impulse to go up to them
and ask, "Are you sure you want to copy this?"
Guess I don't have enough narcissism
to waltz up to them in an outlandish outfit,
singing, "And if you (pointing at them) practice hard and long enough,
maybe you'll be good enough in ten years
to be selected in one of these exhibits (pointing at self)."
(you know I'm rolling my eyes now) -
one of the reasons I am very choosy
which artists are on my blog list.
I love excellence and professional art,
but someone praising their own art
with bombastic revelry.
is a poor reflection of what art is all about!
Only time will tell (after my life time)
how "memorable" my art is.
