There was a period in the history of this blog where I stopped posting for whatever reason, but didn’t stop painting. So there are a handful of paintings that were never documented here. So I thought I would share one of those.
Aaargh! I had hoped to have this finished to show for PPF, but I haven’t had time, plus there were at least two days this week where I came home from work and just crashed (well, after the evening routine with the kids, anyway, gone are the days of relaxing straight after work).
None of us were born with a pencil and Leonardo da Vinci’s art education – not even Leonardo himself. Yet, many of us, including me, oggle at the masters’ artworks and grumble about how we can never be that good. Do we ever see the blood, sweat and tears behind those masterpieces? Do we know what each of those great artists had to overcome to get where their careers finally took them? In many cases, the only factors separating success and failure is the determination to learn from failure and pick everything up and try again.
