Whether you succeed or not is irrelevant, there is no such thing. Making your unknown known is the important thing.
~ Georgia O'Keefe
I came across that quote the other day and it really resounded with me. Balancing my artwork and my house and motherhood is tricky. I find myself driven to do it all. These words gave me peace. I don't expect to make loads of money from my work. I don't need it to be in famous museums or have lots of shows. It makes me happiest when someone from Arkansas or London or Perth writes me and tells me what a piece means to them, and how happy they will be to live with it. Then I feel the resonance of what I do.
