This painting is a part of the series on 'My Core Values'. My philosophy in life is to put my heart and soul in what I do, because things done by halves don't lead to good results. I truly believe in the power of being passionate about one's work. Passion is like the fuel to fire up your inside and spring you into action. Passion is what makes the work enjoyable. When one is passionate about what one does it doesn't feel like work at all. I am passionate about creating art. I lose track of time when I am in my studio. For me, it is like meditation, being in a creative zone of timelessness.
'The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why." - Mark Twain
Once you know your 'why', you also know what you are passionate about and then you can figure out what you need to do in order to accomplish it. It may take time to know what is your calling but once it becomes clear, passion takes over and then the work becomes infinitely more pleasurable.
"The only way to do great work is to love what you do." - Steve Jobs
When you're passionate about the work you do, hours don't matter. I believe that being passionate about the work I do is crucial to my happiness and the quality of work I produce.

Knowing where one wants to go, setting the goal and focusing on it are important in order to succeed. If one can eliminate distractions and stay focused on a single goal, success is not hard to attain. Sometimes it takes a young six-year old to remind us of this. It is based on a true story.
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
