It's always interesting to discover that most artists you admire often are unhappy with at least some aspect of just about everything they produce—they might acknowledge some good qualities, but they'll always be able to point out something they would have liked to have done better. The imagination is always ahead of the hand. There is always the next challenge, the more perfect surface, the more interesting composition. As an artist, you find that you look at the world in a new way and constantly discover new subjects. As your own skills develop, you find that you are increasingly able to learn from other artists’ work. Mirroring life,. art becomes a journey, not a destination.
