What defines Sucess?

I participated in an art show this past Thursday and only sold one painting but received a commission for another painting. At first I was feeling a bit blue that I only sold 1 painting but I had to step back and think, what defines success for me? I was successful in selling a painting, I was successful in getting a commission for another painting. I was successful in meeting some really great people that evening and I was successful in meeting people who live in Marin and know gallery owners. I really want to get my art into galleries in the north bay. Marin, San Rafael, Healdsburg, Sausalito and places like that. I think I accomplished that. I have to remember that every time I get myself out there and people see my art it is SUCCESS.

I believe in my art, I believe that my art is really good and that I can make a success in my field. I just have to keep getting out there and meeting people and having little success stories and selling my art.

Here are some of the images from my show.

My next show will be on the 18th of July. It will be at the community center in Point Richmond California from 5-8:00pm.
