All of us artists here are fragile souls. We all display our work and eagerly wait for praise from our peers. We are also our own harshest critics, each seeing a flaw or mistake that others can't, or wishing we could have done something better. Each admiring others work more than our own and wishing we could have done that!
Each of us also think that we can paint and that we do have something to offer the community. Otherwise we would not be brave enough to post our humble offerings here.
At some point I think we have all created something that we were really proud of, whether we have since surpassed that in ability or technique doesn't matter. Something we created stirred or provoked a reaction that said... 'Hey I can do this!'.
So here is my moment of pride first posted June last year. I challenge you to post your own.
