Lessons from the Great Masters

Studio 365: Day 205

Day 205
 
As I come to the end of my journey with Lessons from the Great Masters it’s time for a moment of reflection. I assembled all the exercises from the past fours weeks on the studio wall tonight and have put together a slide show of the featured images from each of the sixteen days that it took to complete the book. To all those of you who have joined me on the journey my thanks for your company along the way and for your many words of support and encouragement. It is always so good to see you.

Day 175 iii

My journey through Lessons from the Great Masters began on June 24th, Day 175. In a few short weeks I feel I have learned so much and once again would like to thank Debi Riley for introducing me to the book through her wonderful blog.

Life long learning is what it’s all about.
