    Since I am always interested in learning and improving my "work" I don't think it is ever "ready". Do I show it, yes I do and enjoy doing so.

    Hi Ray,
    Start with friends and family, after all they will be your best, and worst critics. As for the public, go slowly. Try and get something hung in a local pub, or restaurant. Put some contact info on it, and listen to their responses.
    Good luck.

    As one who tries to sell and show work, my reply is, "as soon as you can!"

    Technology is not a panacea. It alone will not move your art forward. Only through developing your own aesthetic - free from the tools that create it - can you find new dimension to your work.

    Dear Ray,

    Many years ago, a painter friend quoted a marvellous line,

    "Every painting needs two people: an artist to create it, and someone to kill him when it is finished."

    Art is very seldom finished; it's just a question of when and why you move on.

    Cheers,

    That is a great quote!

    And I know just what that person ment. The exhibition that I have been told was my best was one where I felt I needed more time to work on the images as I felt I hadn't got my concept fully realised. (and I am still working on it....)
