Learning Something New Every Day

The time I have spent in college has been more helpful to me than I can even imagine. But I hope some day I will realize it completely. I have one more semester of school and I don't want it to end. I love learning and practicing art in a school setting. I love learning methods, techniques, and concepts from professors that I trust and admire. However, once school ends, that is not the end of my learning. I should look at it as a chance to take everything I have learned in school, and use it!...and then learn something from that. School is not necessary to learn about art or to do it well....a passion in your heart, a desire to know more and understand, and an eagerness and drive to explore and discover new things is what is necessary. Besides, even when school is done, and I have my degree....that doesn't mean I can't take art classes for fun! In fact, that is my plan! So....I will stop worrying about leaving school and just think of it as a chance to learn something new.

Today I realized how much I have learned in school as I have studied art. I did a little sketch of an owl just the other day and remembered another owl sketch I did awhile back...a little over a year, actually. There is quite a difference! But certainly, there is still much to learn and room to grow!

Wow. Thank you for this. It speaks such amazing truth...I needed to read it.

Also, I'm really glad that you came and I feel special that I got to see you sketch the owl...and then here it is on your blog!

I still love 'im. Did you ever decide on a name?
