I am not overly sentimental when it comes to the end of the year but it doesn't hurt to reflect. Over the past years, I have grown a lot as an artist. I can now call myself an artist with confidence. My work has been accepted into many shows. I am teaching on a regular basis and that feels good. Most recently I have had people coming to me and asking me to exhibit! So cool not have to jump through hoops! I am excited to think what the next year and decade may bring!
