Without hard work, talent is not enough ~ Henri Mattise.

Henri-Matisse-Painting-019

The title of this post is a quote from artist, Henri Matitise, and one that has always inspired me. Talent is a wonderful thing to have, but can be squandered by laziness, lack of enthusasim, and so on. Whatever a person’s talent is, it should be nurtured like a delicate plant, until it thrives and blossoms into a magnificent bloom.

Determination and persistance should be the keywords of every writer, artist, entertainer, and so on, until goals are either achieved, or it’s time to move on to bigger and better things. Anyone, or anything that holds the artist back, should be cirumvented or sidestepped. But it’s also important to remember that compassion and respect for others must be paramount in whatever journey is undertaken.
