Does it matter?

Does it matter where I studied,
my training or discipline?
Reviews and critics are just words
hollow letters on a lonely page.
Art is an intimate exchange:
You the Viewer, I the painter,
An offering to my Muse.
Share your reaction with me,
For it is written on your face
Without the grace of spoken words.

Krystin Goodsell 2004
