I'm going to measure the success of the Arts Fulshear show based on the advice I was given by one of the artist/teachers/organizers of ArtReach. In a nutshell he told me I had definitely put in the work and my art should be in galleries and museums. He told me to get out there now; that I was on the cusp of greatness.
I was speechless.
People loved my pieces. No one referred to them as quilts. Most comments were along the lines of "gorgeous artwork".
Time to reap the rewards of a lifetime of hard work.
