The Launch Pad



  An elderly artist recently observed my digital artwork, carefully eyeing the large giclee prints in amazement.  Being an old-school oil-painting artist who once painted charming images of cheerful birds and delicate flowers when she was younger, she studied my work intently before remarking, "Your art is stunning - I've never seen anything like it.  I love the color and I am fascinated at how you have created something so unusual and out of the mainstream.  Have you tried to get it shown in a gallery?"
  "No Mom,"  I said, "but thanks for the compliment."
