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.

My journey through Lessons from the Great Masters
began on June 24th, Day 175

Life long learning is what it’s all about.
