learning

i have so much more in life to learn if i want to ever be the great artist i want to be.i want a book that i am proud to have published with all my best work in it,i want to share what i have learned ,and i hope to make it easier  for others than it is for me to get  thier work appreciated .i do not want the   vangough legacy,where  his art was not valued until his death.painting can be easy but we want to be the best and that is just something i can not be.ther will always be someone better than me.it will however not keep me form trying.so here is what i want to share today. not that any one will come see it.i have to improve my social networking skills
