Isn't always immediate.


People said, "What's that?" or  "Are you done yet?" after looking at my first paintings.


Code for... that's ugly!

I pushed through dirt like a seed, because small steps make big changes.


I hated painting the first three years, but this was about perseverance.


Here's my early work to show what was overcome.

Forget special


Any skill can be learned with

sustained effort.

How will you grow?
