Persistence is the iron quality of success; if you persist long enough you must eventually succeed."
- Brian Tracy
Success is a journey, not a destination. The doing is often more important than the outcome. - Arthur Ash
If A is a success in life, then A equals x plus y plus z. Work is x; y is play; and z is keeping your mouth shut. Einstein
Work is love made visible. - Kahlil Gibran
Kindness is love with its work boots on.- The House Bunny
"One of the greatest feelings in life is the conviction that you have lived the life you wanted to live - with the rough and the smooth, the good and the bad - but yours, shaped by your own choices and not someone else's" Michael Ignatieff
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
----from A Return to Love, by Marianne Williamson.
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit. --Aristotle
"Your outer circumstances are but a reflection of your inner thoughts." Unknown
"The feeling of being valuable-"I am a valuable person"- is essential to mental health and is a cornerstone of self-discipline...because when one considers oneself valuable, one will take care of oneself in all ways that are necessary. Self-discipline is self-caring."
It's not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the ones most responsive to change.
- Charles Darwin
A year from now you will have wished you had started today. ~ Karen Lamb
Tolerance is seeing with your heart instead of your eyes. ~ unknown
Ultimately, the only power to which man should aspire it that which he exercises over himself. ~ Elie Wiesel
"I find that the harder I work, the more luck I seem to have." -Thomas Jefferson-
"What this power is, I cannot say. All I know is that it exists...and it becomes available only when you are in that state of mind in which you know exactly what you want...and are fully determined not to quit until you get it" -Alexander Graham Bell-
The Laws of Success
"The Law of Persistence: Your ability to persist in the face of adversities, setbacks, and disappointments is your measure of your belief in yourself. Persistence is the iron quality of success; if you persist long enough you must eventually succeed."
- Brian Tracy
"I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be."
- Douglas Adams
"It is not easy to become beautiful. It requires hard work, patience, and attention to detail. It also takes a certain firmness of purpose. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and it may be necessary from time to time to give a stupid or misinformed beholder a black eye."
If hunger is not the problem, then eating is not the solution.
A dream is just a dream. A goal is a dream with a plan and a deadline. (Harvey Mackay)
"Strength does not come from winning.Your
struggles develop your strength. When
you go through hardship and decide
not to surrender, that is strength."

OH yes! do take a pix; document all your work; date it if it is not dated by the camera, cause you will see your progress and so will whoever may be interested in having you do a commission!!
Color theory is very complicated! Color palettes develop very personally; I am more a draughtsman and mixed media person than painter but I too, am going back to "re-teach" myself and in many cases, learn for the first time, about painting!! WHOOOOT!
