It is almost the end of the Artist Breakthrough Program that has been going on for the last month. As I reflect back over the last few weeks, I am both sad and happy that it is over.
Sad because I will miss our weekly get together. If you have not done a program like this you will be surprised how much you will miss the interaction with your peers. Most of us as artists tend to be/work alone. Oh sure, we have partners, friends, and co- workers. But how many of them happen to be artists? How many of them understand the drives, the pressures, the feelings of self worth or not that we all go through?
Happy, not that it is over, but because of all that we have accomplished. We each started the program with our own goals and our own ideas on how to accomplish these goals. Over the course of these last few weeks, through the non competitive feedback and assistance of the group members, these goals and methods have been modified, refined, and most important, accomplished.
Thanks to all of you.
