To Show or Not to Show?

Paper Artist Trading Cards for my new Ancestor: Making book. 2.5" x 3.5"

To show or not to show
Does art exist if it is not shown?
What about all the fees
And schlepping?
The lack of sales
The Rejections?

Backs of the cards above...I'm using actual photos...too many photos to save them all

But what about the
Unmistakable pride
And comraderie
Of seeing one’s efforts hung
And seeing others
Seeing the results of our efforts?

Thanks for your comments, Eileen. I need to re-remember how to link to my Amazon Author's my other blog:

I often think about this, too. I think for me to make and share it with people who appreciate it is enough, but another part of me thinks that is a cop out because I'm scared to put myself out there.
