Live out your FAITH (what you belive in, and place importance on) everyday - through every aspect of your life - even let it find expression in your art.
We're never going to be perfect people, and we're never going to make perfect artwork... but it's a journey.
Take small steps each day... it's amazing how far you can go if you just focus on the next small step (headed in an intentional direction).
Let me know some personal goals and victories - I want to encourage you on your journey.
I recently hit a personal goal... 100 pieces of artwork in Private Collections (as of June, 2013)
May God bless your journey today!
