"My child could do this."

A person commented, "My child could do this." on an Instagram post yesterday. We are not connected on social and have since blocked her, after responding, "How nice."  Her profile pic consisted of huge, barely covered, breasts, no face. Sex workers moonlighting as art critics? SHE HIT IT RIGHT ON THE HEAD. 

I try to channel my inner child every time I enter the studio. So, Success!  However simple things appear usually the process is anything but. Few think of process while surfing the Internet but process is what drives artists. Would I want someone to see all my messy moments in the studio? No!

All my creative life I've been told it's not about the finished product, it's about the process. When I am trying to make a painting I walk the fine line of staying in the moment, my process, till I get there. 

A detail that received the comment, "My child could do this." I wear it like a badge but not the first second I read it. That first second, my heart stopped. Comments have consequences. We can't control what people write only our reaction to it.

Good or bad, History is what separates this work from that of a child.
