Career Speedbump

One of my art career speed bumps is, black history month. There was a time when February was good for visual artists of color in Denver.
Those days are long gone, the organizations that could give visibilty to painters, sculptors and other disciplines don't show us off any more. I just dread BHM, because I think it gives the black community another excuse ,to not buy art from other artists and me.
I just wanted to be on the record, I am older and bolder so I get to say what's on my mind concerning BHM.
My art career has legs, and as I write this ,I am in a museum exhibition that will be on view for more than sixty days.
I will arton inspite of BHM.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
