It's easy to quit. It's easy for me to think "I'm not good..smart..brave..creative..whatever enough". Every day is a battle to be productive, but I'm learning that it's the small steps that lead to great personal and hopefully professional growth. It's when I choose to pick up my paint brush that I continue to progress in developing my personal style and expanding the creative side of my brain. It's when I choose to test materials or try new techniques that I will push my bravery and honesty in my work. Art has been my greatest avenue for self-discovery and the best therapy in overcoming whatever obstacles that I've been thrown.
