Par for the course, I guess. Like Matt, I've been here (on and off) for years, and probably received a comment about every other month I've been active. Very nice comments. Some enlightening, some encouraging, most both. All positive, and I've read enough comments on other people's art to know that's a reflection on the community more than on the excellence (or not) of my art. It would be nice to see more comments. Not only do I enjoy those about my work, the ones about other people's work guide me to good stuff - with the number of artists here my random browsing can only go so far. Thanks for the comments you have posted. It's easy to just complain about lack of comments - you did something about it first, I respect that.
