Lessons learned

One of the most famous and constantly repeated quotes is by one of my favorite artists, "Bob Ross." His coined phrase is "Happy little mistakes..." What Bob is communicating to artists is sometimes you might put in the wrong color, value, or screw up a line, drop paint while finishing a piece. Don't view this as a mistake but a new way to execute your masterpiece. Greatness isn't realized until you have failed. My mantra for 2018 is, "Why accept failure when success is free." In the words of Bob Ross, don't let life's detours determine your final destination or piece of artwork. Work around what is given and maybe the outcome will be far better than you could have imagined.
