Practice and humility are essential for my development in art and life.

Not because I am “not good enough”. Not because “I am better than”.

Both of these states are comparative and self-defeating. I am just an artist among artists.

I went to my regular figure drawing workshop yesterday and found out that a colleague was teaching a beginning figure drawing class right after the workshop. I have never had any instruction in drawing before and it never occurred to me that I needed any. He was gracious enough to allow me to sit in on his class and I learned much in his approach.
