You may have heard the saying, “You can’t rush art.” This refers to the fact that great art takes time. Few realize that artists rarely ‘get it right’ on the first try. Before an art work is finished, it has usually gone through multiple drafts and revisions that viewers never get to see. Such work takes not just perseverance, but faith. Keeping their mind’s eye on what their art piece will eventually become, artists are often driven by that positive perseverance to complete their work. In your own life, you will face tasks that seem too big or too time-consuming. But if you keep a positive attitude to persevere and have faith, you will succeed in all that you attempt.
