There are many symbols and images that can be used to describe true balance and harmony such as yoga poses, scales and inukshuk status to name a few. Our earth demonstrates true balance on the beginning of spring known as the equinox. The equinox is an astronomical event in which the equator is aligned with the sun. On the equinox, day and night are of equal duration all over the planet. This event signals the beginning of spring.
Here is a photograph of an inukshuk that I took on a beach near Yarmouth, NS that symbolizes balance.

I would say you can get self-confidence, recognition, and acknowledgment. Yes that is right, you can get all of this for .25$.
This morning I checked my phone as I do each morning. To my surprise I had a notification from Shutterstock.com, a web site where I had downloaded images to sell to individual or companies from all over the world. Of the approved photographs I had submitted last week, one had been purchased and my commission was .25$.
You may be asking yourself why would anyone put so much energy for so little reward? As an artist, I would say it is to get self-confidence, recognition and acknowledgement. Artist creates art in the hope that it will emit emotions whether positive or negative to its audience. How an artist can reach his or her audience is not always an easy task; therefore, getting a “hit” is enough to seduce the artist in believing in her creation and continue to seek the recognition.
