being a Student for Life

I think it is important for artists to think of themselves as lifelong students.

No matter how good we think our artwork is, there is always room for growth, improvement and expansion of our artistic processes.

I listen to careful and constructive criticism of my work.
Who am I to think that I have learned everything there is to know about the quality of my artwork?

Isn't there always more to learn?
I think the answer to this question is a definitive "yes."
