"A bad painting is like taking a journey down a side road and finding it ends in a dead end.
It may seem you've gone nowhere, but there are gifts you've picked up along the way.
Just keep your eyes open.
You'll learn something from each road you take.
The main thing is to keep excited about what you're doing.
Think of frustration as the vehicle that moves us forward and persistence as the gas that drives it.
Enjoy the journey, it's the most important part of the trip."
