I had an old philosophy professor that said "Never be the kind of person that takes a photo of a sunrise and then walks away. A sunrise is not a single moment. Its an event. It takes time. Sit down and watch the whold thing. That's the only way to truely see a sunrise."
You've probably seen me struggling with a new technique, the past few months--using non-indian ink that bleeds when you touch it with watercolor. So hard to control and the colors get muddy and grey. It's been kicking my butt. But I've had had faith that if I kept at it I could figure it out and it would be cool. Today I can see the first glimmer of hope that I was right.
