Success! It is about more than the money, more than the recognition… it is a deeper meaning than the external… it is inside you to reach your true potential!

“Focusing your life solely on making a buck shows a certain poverty of ambition. It asks too little of yourself. Because it’s only when you hitch your wagon to something larger than yourself that you realize your true potential.”

— President Barack Obama

Watercolors are a bit different than this, but what pattern are you using and how does it describe you?

What forced you to think about the medium of watercolor and what it could and could not do? Where did you find challenges in the process? What was COOL about the use of the material? What was UNCOOL about it?
