Life’s work is never done. Until the day we make our final exit, there is no moment to which we can point and say, there. That is when I felt complete. We may approach completion within certain facets of our lives, but we must always continue to strive and learn and grow. For artists, this rings especially true. An artist must constantly evolve, expanding and refining their practice, moving their work into the world and seeking out opportunities at every turn. Here are a few to get you started.
