I don't mean to sound Brash, but a true artist isn't in it for the recognition, or the money. I encourage your daughters to continue with their art,
but it's not necessarily the best way to earn a living. Trust me, I'm 26 and a musician. My music has not paid for much, and I both enjoy and get
complimented on my abilities all the time, but it still won't pay the bills. Art, is about art.
I'm sorry, I just had to get that out. If your daughters are in their 20's and 30's why should it matter if love keeps walking by? That's the
beauty of love, you never know when it's going to walk right in and knock you off your feet. That's half of the beauty of it, it always comes around
when you aren't expecting it. I think the best thing you could do for them, is try to make them feel good about themselves. They obviously need to
find their confidence, and this may not come as an easy thing, but it's incredibly difficult to get through life expecting love or anything else to
make everything okay. It's up to the individual to make life what they want, and if they are trying and feel like they are failing, the only thing
they need to know is they just haven't figured out where the next piece goes. You can only fail, if you stop trying.
Give my regards to your daughters, and perhaps good old Dad can offer his thoughts and opinions on the artwork. Sometimes the best recognition comes
from the ones that love you.
