Words of inspiration to artist of all walks. Never give up, never accept defeat. Do what ever you have to do to keep going, even if it means having to take a turn to the left or the right, when you only want to stay on the same path. There have been times when I have have been brought to a complete standstill, unable to pursue my dream at all, due to financial or health problems. But, during that time I learned valuable lessons that allowed me to accomplish far more than I would have if I had not had to take that hiatus and fork in the road. I became more experienced and knowledgeable and, when I was able to return to my art, that enabled me to accomplish more . My best work has come from that turn in the road.
