What is art?
Art is all about change. You will not and cannot be a master of your craft upon first picking up the brush or pencil or whatever your utensil of trade may be. If you fail- try again. Not harder- just again and again and again. Practice makes progress- not and never perfection.
Life and art are about change, progress; constantly meta-morphing into something new and beautiful. If your perspective changes (within the boundaries of art or life) and you discover even a modicum of the beauty and eccentricities life has to offer, then you have found the purpose of art.
