An artist must reach some kind of understanding about his own objectives as an artist. Despite involvement in many juried shows, awards, and possibly countless praises about one's work, selling this artwork is another matter. Thus, the same people who praise your work are usually those that make no effort to buy it. Hence, other than falling into the trap of artistic self-pity, the artist must appreciate the only constant that remains, that is, the nourishment he attains by the process of creating art.
