Humbled With Merit

The other day I was whining to a long time friend about being repeatedly humbled by the art world. He very astutely replied,
"Don't take humbling as without merit - those experiences happen every day and you dust off the knees and keep moving forward with what you enjoy. Don't let 'em win!"

"Don't take humbling as without merit." It's been a constant companion in my thoughts for several days. It's easy to forget that being humbled has any redeeming value at all, but it does, and I know it, and it was a jolt in the right direction for me to be reminded of it.

Thanks, friend.

Now, time to be humbled (again) by this latest portrait commission.
