A young girl came to talk to me while I was painting this one. We talked a lot about art supplies & then she told me her sister was really good at art. Later her & her Dad came to show me some photos of her older sister’s art & she stormed off angry that her Dad was showing me her art. Later, the older sister came by & asked me if I had any tips for her. I said, “Actually I do. You should learn how to take a compliment.”

She looked at he surprised. “I mean, when someone says you’re a great artist, just practice saying ‘thank you’. It’s probably the most important thing about being an artist. Eventually you start to believe you are great too & that means more than anything else I can tell you.” Then I told her about the type of paint, palette and canvases I use, but truly, the most important thing is ‘thank you.’
