Do artists resent the fact that most of us work in the dark so to speak? I know that I'm a compulsive art maker and while it's a hoot to sell the work and have work in a show, it's always seemed like the icing on the cake. I like the work! It's so much fun and if it gets noticed - wonderful - but it won't stop me from plugging away. We all joke about how we'll be famous after we shuffle off this mortal coil.
For one artist, that keep plugging mentality has finally bought her some fame and fortune! We can thank New York artist (and member of the studioNOTES group) Tamara Wyndham for this inspiring link.
