   "My single piece of advice to students—have fun and allow yourself the time to learn. It doesn’t happen with a painting or two. It’s about the miles spent at the easel. Hopefully it is fun and frustrating all at the same time. One more piece of advice, if I may—KNOW that there is always another canvas or board. It is not about the product or end result—it is about the process. Fall in love with the process."
