  2. My Uncle by marraige was a wonderful watercolorist and he told me, "If you are serious about your art, you have to do it at least 3 hrs every day." He also took the clean white paper and threw it in the dirt and said "It's only paper" I've heard that from other teachers along the way but his voice sticks with me.

  3. Wer's versucht kann scheitern. Aber wer's nicht versucht ist schon gescheitert!
    Translation: If you try, you can fail. But if you don't try, you have already failed!
    My Dad told me these words, when I wasn't sure if I should try drawing portraits. After he told me that I gave it a try and now I love drawing portraits of people and of animals.

  4. Just because you don’t look like other “crayons” in the box does not mean you still can’t make the most beautiful pictures. Don’t you ever give up on you! You are simply amazing!

  5. I think it's important to remember that it doesn't matter what you do, as long as you're doing something. Thinking about creating or intending to create are not enough.

  7. My dad always said "you can do anything - your past has already proven that. If you don't put forth an effort to succeed, you have already failed".

  9. By the yard is hard, but inch by inch, everything is a cinch. All complex projects are made up with simple and well organzied steps (small elements.) Just do the best you can every step of the way and you will succeed in no time.

  11. When I was a child my dad would always say "you're a good hand at drawing." That made me feel good. However, looking back on it I truly got more out of what my mom did. She actually critiqued the work. At the time it made me upset, but it taught me how to handle criticism and how to work on improving myself.

  12. I like your work--even though it's dark and I don't understand it.

  14. I think it was when someone bought for the first time one of my paintings and said : "i'm in love with it !"

  15. From one of my mentors, Arlene Steinberg, I ran into her at the Rittenhouse Art Show in Philadelphia, PA. I brought her book "Masterful Color, vibrant colored pencil paintings layer by layer" to autograph. She wrote: "Keep drawing. Enjoy the process of drawing, rather than focusing on the outcome." It made such a difference in my approach.

  21. It wasn't words, but upon seeing my very first portrait (of my young grand daughter) my friend simply burst into tears. Seeing how moved some one could be by something I had created was more gratifying and inspiring than any words could have been!
