How does one measure success?  I think it has something to do with how you feel, about whatever it is.  If you feel good, you're successful.  I see I have readers!  That's success, for sure.  It means what I'm saying has meaning for more people than just me, and whatever one can do to make the world a more enlightened place, the better!  Just look at all the people helping Haiti,... that gives one a renewed confidence in mankind.
As for art, I was really successful today.  I worked all day on another door, it's almost done.  I feel so great about it.... that's my way of telling if the painting really worked or not.... that gut feeling.  It's not quite done yet, but I'll share it now anyway. 
It's the door of the address that Jim Morrison lived at in Paris.  My hubby's a real big fan, so we seeked it out when in Paris (France) a few years ago, and I took a picture of it with hubby, of course. At that time, I had no idea I'd be doing paintings of doors!  This door was huge!  For my painting I included Jim instead - more fitting, don't you think?  I'll post it again when it's really finished.

Looking at it here helps me to see where it needs work too.  Another strategy for self-evaluation.
