Last night another show said yes to having me participate in their event. I should listen to my wife more and what guy is there that shouldn't take that advice? She said, I would get into these shows, but I always look at the competition and see the artists who are amazing, so it's an honor to be invited.
I have found that I really enjoy doing shows. The people who attend are wonderful and best of all they have come to see art. Which in my mind adds up to; people who enjoy art = wonderful people. :)
