Never Stop Growing

"The only way that we can live, is if we grow. 
 The only way that we can grow is if we change. 
The only way that we can change is if we learn. 
The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. 
And the only way that we can become exposed 
is if we throw ourselves out into the open."
~ C. Joybell

I think continual growth is one of the most important things we should strive for in life. Learning, study, enthusiasm and mental vitality go hand in hand. Knowledge is not only good for our mind, it keeps us young and alert and is nourishment for the spirit, heart and soul. I am excited about signing up for an inspiring ecourse in oil painting and soul connecting with Dreama which starts at the end of this week!
"One of the worst things an artist can do 
is stagnate into a certain style or genre for life. 
It's all about growth, and the growth of the artist 
should never stop.
~ Dorenda Crager Watson
