Today I just noticed that I've already been on DA for more than five years! While I'm almost never that confident about my art, recently I've been feeling especially dejected when I realize how "unpopular" (I don't know what the right word should be--it's not unpopularity but the lack of popularity?) my art has always been; even though I never, ever create to please the crowd, it can still get to you sometimes, when you've been working so hard and putting your heart and soul into something and so few people appreciate the result. It's funny because this almost never bothered me before--it has always pushed me to work harder and make my art better. It's rare that I let that get to me. But I guess it's fatigue or just the solitude of being an artist in training. However, that just reminded me how grateful I am to you folks! Seriously, some of you have been watching me from my photography days and have always supported me with kind words, encouragements, and lots of favs (many of which I don't even deserve). I know we've never met in person and they say nothing is real online, etc., but your support has been real all along, because it's the thing that makes me want to keep going forward and not to give up. So thank you! And I'd love to hear how you are doing and what you've been working on these days, what you love and what you've been struggling with. Love to y'all!
