I have a number of critics. My 3 year old daughter is the most positive and enthusiastic, though her experience of art at this point is limited. My 6 year old son is very serious, thoughtful, and frank. My husband (age undisclosed) sways from appreciative to bewildered, depending on how realistic or abstract a piece is respectively. My father is encouraging, and annoyingly tactful at times. It is a failing of mine that I distrust his feedback because I know how much he loves the very fact that I'm creating again, and I know he doesn't want to discourage me in any way. I suppose it will take time for both of us to gain confidence in what I'm doing, to take the rough with the smooth, and I look forward to that.
My husband likes the first hand, my son prefers the second. My daughter squeaked when she saw each of them in turn. Hopefully, my dad, who's Internet access is powered by mice on a treadmill, hasn't seen these yet.
