I know what you mean. I'm awesome about talking about and/or selling anything but my own stuff. I once sold a broken Halloween cookie in November; I can write pages and pages on someone else's work. When it comes to my own stuff, it's all, "So, it's a painting, and, um, . . . there's a person, and, um, . . . colors, . . . and it's cool and stuff." I'm terrible about translating my confidence and vision in my work into words. Writing's so much easier when it's not gut-wrenchingly personal.

It would actually make a really interesting companion book if you used quotes from readers that you felt particularly encapsulated what you meant to express in your paintings/cards. Say, open a thread here and ask for input, and harass all your friends, and so on. It'd really emphasize the universality of the messages, and it'd be fun.

I'll make sure to post or PM you as soon as I get mine, to ease your mind.
