The Backstory -
Okay, I accept that my work is not to everyone's taste.
Recently, one of my sisters spent about two minutes flipping through my portfolio. She looked at me and said, "Don't you do anything pretty? Don't you do flowers? This (she was commenting on "Sweet Hearts") looks like someone threw up!"
Well, thanks a bunch, sis!
The not-so-subtle irony? "Sweet Hearts" is a manipulation of, yep, a huge display of roses! Hey, I can do flowers! But, sometimes, you just need to see a purple cow!
Aw, everybody's a critic.
Luckily, I've received very positive and encouraging feedback from the majority of my blog visitors and website viewers. What a relief to know there are so many open-minded people out there; creative, imaginative people who are willing to stretch themselves far enough to embrace the unfamiliar, contemplate it, and possibly, accept it for what it is.
A special "Thank you!" to those who've given my work very public, and very much appreciated, kudos on their own blogs and websites!
Gosh, who knew there'd come a time when I'd receive better reviews than Julia Roberts?
I'm listening to:
The delectably C.O.O.L Michael Buble, singing "Feeling Good." Follow the link, click the green "Watch" button, sit through the commercial, then click the purple button to see a snazzy-retro-spy video.
I hope this works -- I can't find an active code to simplify the process. Think I'll go test it, right now!
EDIT: It worked for me (on any number of levels)! Hope it works for you, too!
