The Ultimate Quest

"First, one seeks to become an artist 
by training the hand – techniques. 
Then one finds it is the eye 
that needs improving – drawing skills.
 Later, one learns it is the mind that
 wants developing – design or composition; 
only to discover that the ultimate quest 
of the artist is in the spirit – content."
~ Larry Brullo

"It is a shameful thing to be weary of inquiry
when what we search for is excellence."
~ Cicero

"Sometimes you have to go through something else
to find what you're looking for."
~ Robert Genn

Another 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge has come to an end. I can hardly believe it's over. After doing it five previous times, I can honestly say that they do get easier. I am glad I took this opportunity to turbo- charge my career. Accelerated production has a way of clarifying the search and adding velocity to the journey. I want to thank each and every one of you for your wonderful feedback, support and for coming along on this wild, amazing, abstract, alcohol ink ride with me!

"There's always a way to do it better. Find it."
~ Thomas Edison

Come back tomorrow to see the wrap up collage of all 30 of my alcohol ink abstracts!

Thanks so much for your friendship,
