It's Hard Work That Creates Change

What am I doing when I'm not posting pictures from shows and of new paintings? Well, working hard, mostly, because:

Dreams are lovely...But dreams do not come true just because you dream them. It’s hard work that makes things happen. It’s hard work that creates change.
— Shonda Rhimes

Thanks to Gavin Aung Than for sharing that quote from a commencement speech Rhimes gave at Dartmouth - you can read the full quote and see Gavin's awesome visual interpretation of it on his website, Zenpencils.com.

I have some elaborate calendaring schemes to keep myself on top of everything it takes to manage my painting schedule and my own business:

Be regular and orderly in your life, so that you can be violent and original in your work.
— Gustave Flaubert
