|“The road of life twists and turns and no two directions are ever the same. Yet our lessons come from the journey, not the destination.” Don Williams Jr.|
My destination, my goal, is to grow as a person and artist and to enjoy life and art as I move towards it. My ultimate goal is success in my art, which is a rather large goal and I remind myself of this:
“Success is not a place at which one arrives but rather the spirit with which one undertakes and continues the journey.” Alex Noble
I don’t want to become so focused on my destination that I forget to embrace the journey.
In my journey I hope to travel old paths and find new ones and not be afraid of what lies beyond the next turn. I must have faith that regardless of where the path takes me, I will find my way.

My journey will be a quest of and for imagination and creativity.
My journey will take me to new places, new people, new thoughts and ideas.
My journey’s path is unknown but I am confident it will reveal itself as the road unwinds.

I know the journey will be an adventure and I can’t wait to see where it will take me. I will be using journey and all the words and themes it inspires for me as prompts for artwork when I need a little inspiration. It will be interesting to find out where I’ll be at the end of the year.
