Listen as we discuss influential books, poetry, what to do with surplus artwork, and keeping your social media posts grounded and real.


Takeaways

  1. We're just doing what we do hoping it speaks to somebody.
  2. Saying "no" is one of the hardest but one of the most important things we can do for ourselves.
  3. Just because you don’t like one of your own paintings  doesn’t mean someone else won’t.
  4. You need to believe in what you’re doing and keep at it.
  5. None of it comes easy. It’s determination that makes the difference.
