Practice Makes Perfect

"Art is a Lifetime of Practicing what you Love to do."


A few weeks ago, I came across an old drawing of an airplane that I had made; one of many, back when I was about five years old. Seeing this sketch reminded me that my love for art and aviation has been with me for as long as I can remember. Like anyone, there were many times I faced frustration, and would end up with a page destroyed by countless erase marks, or starting over with a new layer of fresh paint - but I continued on. Later, I realized that those challenges only allowed me to develop my art skills all the more. 

Had I ever given up on those simple plane sketches, I would have missed out on so many years of doing what I love, and at the same time, gaining experience, skill and pure happiness. 


Practice takes dedication, but Practice makes perfect.

Whatever your passion, stick with it - no matter what challenges you may face; every little bit of effort is a major step towards where you want to be. Becoming skilled at something can be as simple as just not giving up.
