I have been a big fan of the Karate Kid as long as I can remember first seeing it in the theater. Ever since then I have longed to find a mentor of the caliber of Mr. Miyagi. Sadly, such a thing doesn’t exist. No one is ever going to fit your idea of the perfect mentor. You will have people who drift in and out of your life, dropping nuggets of wisdom along the way. You might even be that person dropping wisdom nuggets for someone else without realizing it. So your best bet is to being open to new ideas and new experiences.
I painted this a few years back in an older version of openCanvas.
